Thanks for the info, it a nice engine overall. It was bought new and used on a local farm thats about i all know so im not sure what it powered it doesnt look like its worked much. Any idea on a rough value for one of these engines ? The owner is thinking of selling it. Thanks.

There's been an 'Amanco' version for sale on eBay for a couple weeks. Starting price is 450 and it hasn't drawn any bids, so that's a bit of a guide.

I sold one earlier this year for 350, all complete, straight off farm.
The Wico EK mag is worth quite a lot on its own ......

I would have thought that's about its limit. A good EK has value, but one that needs a rebuild has virtually no value, since it's fairly expensive to do, and all the parts are available new.

I don't know about you guys, but when I buy an engine I simply assume that the mag is scrap and needs a full rebuild/rewind/remag, and factor that into the price. If the mag actually works then that's a bonus - it won't last!

THose prices are about what the owner is expecting thanks for the rough guide. The mag does work and has been kept by the aga so should be fairly good but i do have a spare one that i had rebuilt so should be ok if i end up getting it
