I have a chance to buy an older Argo with a Kohler 2 cycle 440cc. It could be an early 70's model. It has welded sprockets.It starts hard when cold and needs a shot of spray to get going.It seems to start okay when the engine has warmed. The wireing, battery and two main chains are new. When stopped and until the engine idles down to a lower rpm, there is a grinding when it is shifted high to low.It may have the wrong belt on the clutch because it's marked Kawasaki. The orginal paint is pretty weathered and faded and it needs a little cosmetic repair where a windshield would attach. It has new Goodyear Rawhide Terra tires 21x11-8 tires on new wheels. It has machine shop made wheel adaptors to fit the 5 hole wheels. Other than that, it appears to be stock except for a flex pipe running between the engine and the cannister muffler. Can anyone offer any advice on this 6x6 to me and tell me if it's worth $1200.
