Buy Kook's 572. It looks like a hell of a deal if its still for sale.
I think its still in the classifieds.

Wasn't Kooks 572 built by Bruce D. the guy others are having trouble with? He even said he thought it wasn't making the power it was supposed to.?.

Pfaff or Teague. I would call them and tell them what you have that is salvageable. I'm assuming you have at least a blower and a pan See what they can do for you from there.
