25cc poulan conversion

I've got a weedeater conversion engine. I was just in the process of converting it so there is still some work to be done. I built a back plate for it out of aluminum. I bought a prop adapter for it and threw a prop on it and fired it up. It swings a 16x8 prop at 6750 RPM without the muffler. I put the muffler on and it knocked it down to 6400. I have not touched the needles yet so once it is broken in and you start leaning it out it should improve at least slightly. I already have one converted to electronic ignition so I don't need this one.
This engine was off of a brand new weed wacker I bought at Canadian Tire. Total run time so far is about 5 mins
weight 4 lbs 3 oz
Walbro carb
Prop not included. I'm keeping it for my other engine.

$70 OBO plus shipping
