    Engine sucks, non rebuildable. At that age it may need work.

    high reving, can get alot of rpm's out of them, but like the other guy said, they are a throw away motor.

    Can anyone give a rough estimate of the miles this engine can do before it dies?

    my experience with them is oil changes. the more often the oil is changed, the longer they seem to last.
