It's loose with some compression. The fuel pump needs to be rebuilt and installed. The governor was off of the engine when I got it and I loosely assembled it.The valves are loose and everything seems to move as it should. The gas tank has some repairs but seems solid.
The engine is missing the serial tag and Wico EK magneto along with some other findable parts. The hopper has a crack in the front that needs attention. The engine has some remnants of original black paint and decals on it. These black engines don't come along as often as you'd think! All in all it should be a pretty straightforward project.
I can deliver for free (or a cold beverage) to LeSueur, MN, Baraboo, WI, Portland, IN, or Coolspring, PA, next year. It can stay here as long as needed as long as it's paid for.I can load it for you.
