Read the fine print. The mills are shipped direct from China. That means it must go through customs, are you willing to risk that the engine will slip through? If not you get to pay US Customs to destroy it.

 I didn't bother to read all the fine print but what burns me about Ebay these days is they allow Chinese sellers to list items as located in the USA because they all are shipped to a USA based center where they are immediately shipped back out. You can bet your bottom dollar that that a buyer is responsible for all duties, taxes etc etc which means also being responsible for the item being legally importable.  Those engines are not legally importable period. That does not mean that a few haven't slipped through the cracks,, he'll if a chance to take with a lot of money when new old stock pre ban engines are easily obtained. I just bought a band new old stock Changfa 1115 for $300

Another problem is that burning contaminated crap creates contaminated exhaust.  This is the problem that most garbage burners are facing and that includes scrubbers.  Ain't no scrubbers on home based burners.
