There are some on ebay. It seems earlier models may have had better cams. And also post an "engine wanted" ad on the Emporium.

What happened to your engine?

Ouch! Good luck finding a motor. Consider building a ZGRX1200, if your budget and skills allow.

I'm in search of a grenaded engine for an industrial art project.
I'd be interested in yours when your done with the swap.

FWIW, no unused parts will be sold for profit and can be returned.
I only need basic engine: no carbs, starter, etc.

Let me know if you're interested.
Thanks

Wow. Not an everyday experience with these engines, for sure.
