Default Service & Repair $$$$


I have an OS FX 1.60 that I will not be running until later this Summer so am considering having it serviced and cleaned. What is the ball-park for doing something like this. This engine has been involved in a couple of crashes but shows no indications of damage, maybe some dirt and debri in the carb. One time I did have to remove the backplate and soak the engine in soapy water to remove sand from the bearings. I then soaked it in rubbing alcohol and then finally saturated it with 3-in-1 oil. It flew beautifully after that but has since been in another crash and it looks like dirt got back into the carb -- haven't turned it over since.

labor is $15/half hour with half hour minimum..I would estimate roughly an hour labor to do an inspection, cleaning and service, plus any needed parts.
