Sounds like a deal to me...IF all it needs is rings, that's a fair deal to me. If it needs more though...be careful.

depends on your mechanical ability...I don't know what a shop would try to charge. It's a time consuming job, and that's if everything goes right...

4 GRAND for a 929 blowing smoke needing rings? shit.

get em down to 3 and i'll sell you a 929 motor for 1k, and you can have backup.

I dont know about that man...id tell em to get it fixed first or drop the price. sounds shaky to me unless you really think/know its an easy fix.

That's a better way to word it...basically I'm saying it's not a horrible deal if everything else is cool....but if the rings are gone, something caused that failure and it may not be so simple.

I like Adam's option...swap in the 1K engine and keep the other for a backup. :D...plus just think of all the money you'll get back when you sell the plastics to fighter it!
