    Hi there fellow CABEers. Ive got yet another question for the Whizzer guys. I recently bought a 300 motor on here, assuming that i.d. have an old friend (who specialized in Whizzer motor restorations) at my beck and call to help me. As it turns out, he’s in no condition to be messing around with tools. So Im left with quite a conundrum: do i try to fix it myself (with the aide of my Lambretta/ Vespa mechanic friends), or do I try to trade for a running motor of a different series, or a running repop? I have no knowledge as far as mechanics with combustion engines, and I have no clue what these are worth? The piston is not stuck, but the exhaust valve is. I wouldnt even know where to begin? As always, ANY and ALL help will be appreciated and valued!!! Thanks!!!

    it will depend on what shape the motor is internally and how complete it is , you will have to disassemble it and see, it can get real costly to do a total rebuild ...$650 and up for a H model

    I was looking at the first two whizzer engine with what looks like an H style whizzer. I see what does look like the 300 engine with the right head. Now I have to see the serial number. Is there a Carter Carb model N with this?
