Johnny,
Since you haven't had any other reply, the answer is . . . . . . . . . . nobody knows.  (sorry)  If you check out the threads on this forum, you will see that quality is a subjective thing. 

My advice (worth the $0.02 it costs) is, open up the crankcase, look for sand, feel the cylinder wall if you can.  Start it, if it runs ok, (fairly smooth) you have a fair chance.  It still is a crap shoot though, some problems don't appear until it has been run for a while.  Timing gear fractures, camshaft breakage, etc., etc., can still happen, but can't be seen before hand.  Get the Utterpower.com CD and study it prior to purchase, you will learn a lot.  Best of luck,
Ray   :)
