Return it NOW!!! Do Not BS yourself.
You did not pay $99 just to have it fail.

Did you add oil to it before running it?

Hey, just asking.

If no oil, it would not have started in the first place.

In a perfect world, yes. But another part of the engine would seem to be faulty--who's to say the oil sensor even works?

You guys do realize he never said whether he got it used or not ! Before jumping to conclusions here probably should ask.

And it might be the flywheel key.

The two rules of purchases:

1) If you bought it new from a retailer, and it does not work- take it back

2) If you bought it 'new' from a private party, and it does not work- you're stuck with it.

Can I be on the Judges panel? I'm sure I can be fair and impartial. If, not, I'm certain I can be fairly impartial.

Too late. You have already taken part in this with your comment about not taking part in this. Funny how that works, huh?

Harvest the gaskets. Get me the rocker arms, push rods, Piston and rings. Also keep the jets from the carb. Those will be handy at some point.

Then return it. LOL

I do not condone fraudulent returns to Harbor Freight, but they sold you the broken engine.

Buy $99 Predator 212. Part it out on fleabay. Make twice as much money or more than you paid for it. Score.
