Shop rebuild. Love how they say Recon. Buyer beware. Seen a couple of those around here that weren't too special.

No one looking is what those boys are banking on. What outfit is that, anyhow? I can't remember the name on the ones I saw here, but they were from Florida and they used to advertise them in Boats and Harbors.

Hose clamps missing, paint all over the hoses, wiring harness looks rough. I can think less stressful ways of parting with my $11k (plus cost of taking it out and all the booze you will have to drink to be able to deal).

Shiny white paint will probably get someone tho.

I dont see it as that bad of an add. No where in the add does it say "Factory" recon, so reconditioned would be a better word than rebuild if the shop didnt actually rebuild it. Add says it comes as is, No Warranty. BillD how much more is a "Factory" recon 330? if i still had my young bros that wouldnt be a bad option for it!

A little under double the price of the ebay 6BTA but you have a 100% new motor with a 2 yr. 2000 hr warranty.

Warranty maybe not a big deal for a rec guy but a commercial guy..yes.
