The motor is worn out due to so much use :D .The block has a stripped thread and would not suit a rebuild.What parts are you looking for?

The exhaust seal is a venom brand.I bought a pack from my LHS i think for a .21.

If i have any spares they will be used and not new, i will let you know what i have. The motor in the picture is running the spring type crank.
