So I just picked up another ruck today, it was an 8 hr drive round trip but I think I got a helluva deal at $300! It's an 09 with title and I think 2600 miles but supposedly doesn't run but the guy admittedly knew nothing about it, he got it from the original owner a few months ago. With only 2600 miles I can't imagine that the original owner would have blown that GET those things are bully proof but I guess I'll find out tomorrow when the sun is up

300 is a steal. You're stoked. You'd have to find a bunch wrong with it to make it not worth that. Prolly a few bucks in parts will get it going.

Thanks guys, unfortunately it doesn't feel like there's any compression so instead of dealing with the headache I'm just gonna buy a new GET from a friend for $175 it's only got like 600 miles on it

Just got home, it's 4AM and I'm hammered... seems like as good a time as any to do a motor swap right?

Well I just started tearing into her when I noticed two wires that weren't plugged in so I decided to slap a different cvt cover on and try to kick it again... low and behold the original motor does have compression! So I'm gonna wait till I get home from fishing Monday and drain the old gas/ clean the carb and I'm thinkin this bitch will fire! Almost wish I didn't just buy this new motor lol oh well never hurts to have a spare :banger:
