Default Cheap Engines

Didn’t look into it much. Shipping might be high.
Prices are cheap. Engines are big.

$250 shipping for a 445cc.

Shipping estimate for me averaged $470.00

A bit pricey, that's a $720 motor!

You are right. $470 shipping, not $250.

Probably just a drop-ship dealer.

So the seller derides the quality of what he is selling? Am I reading that correctly?

I believe the seller is stating the quality is crap. LOL
And now I have a new word in my vocabulary.

I didn't order them.
The Neway cutters I was looking at are

CU 112
0.975" 45*
22.5mm - 29mm

CU 111
1.000" 60*
22mm - 32.5mm

CU 123
0.975" 31*
22.5mm - 28mm

With the 5.52mm solid tapered pilot
100-5.52mm

CU103 is a dual sided 31* / 46*
31* 25mm - 30.5mm
46* 25mm - 32mm
(won't work on 24mm exhaust valves)

Close to $225 plus shipping for a quality set of cutters with the pilot and handle.
Expensive three angle valve job for a two valve engine.
Valve jobs cost about $50 or $60 if you have to pay shipping. Cant justify it yet.

Interesting, I figured at that price they were at best HSS and wouldn't touch a hardened valve seat. I guess the seats in China engines aren't Stellite. Maybe this cheapo set would be useful?
