As everything I guess - would need to look into service history etc.

Do the engines suff from power loss at that age

not if they are making the same compression ratio n not choked up - can even be quicker than an engine with less miles as they loosen up

I seem to remember seing one that came in with 200k on it, was running fine as far as I remember. Mind you, I've also changed one at 80k which had wrecked it's big ends and had massive piston slap - it had been regularly serviced too.

Probably down to how it's been treated but there does seem to be the odd 'bad egg' about that fails prematurely.

Dunno why. Mines on 85k now and sweet as a nut still.
