If it was buy it now for 179.00, probably would be ok.

The old school blaster engines just run hot to start with even in stock form.
The race ones I build, its not uncomon to see temps in the 300 & higher ranges.
Even at those temp they still last a good while, that is if I can keep the kids dads out of the carbs.
Thats a harder job than building the engine.

Those heads a few years back were in the 200.00 dollar & higher range best I can remember.
Would be a little something to add if its cheap enough.

I hate the look of those heads, they should have atleast machined some small fins into it to match the bottom. just looks out of place IMO.

Ive had many blasters, and never really needed it, keep it jetted right....and it should be good to go. I used to ride them in sand pits back in the day, and they would always run real hot.

i know there is a water pump but how do you power it (i think that is what is in the picture)
