Default Briggs WA on Ebay

There is a Briggs Model Wa engine (Made for the Moto-Mower Super Detriot Mower) on Ebay currently. I haven't seen one of these come up for sale in about 5 or 6 years so it should be interesting on what it brings.
(Hope This Link Works)

Does anyone know what happened to the WA? I just searched Ebay and it's appears to be gone. I even searched by item number and completed listings.

The listing probably fell victim to the eBay policy of not allowing the word "NOT" in the title. While there are plenty that do manage to slip through & run to completion, all it seems to take is one cranky malcontent to complain and the listing gets pulled.

Because if they use the term "Not a F or Fh Or hit or miss" in the title then they say its missleading. I use those words in some of my auctions to draw people in that are searching for those words. but i list them as keywords in my description and not the title....

A quick look at serial numbers leads me to believe the WA is second in rarity to the FJ-2. The T looks to be just a little more common than the WA.

The price of that WA doesn't surprise me one bit, the last time I heard one was for sale was about 6 years ago, I forget what it brought but, it was a lot. I was lucky to be able to purchase mine when I did, for a good bit less, it’s not as original but it is in great shape. Also this particular engine was only made to be used on a Moto Mower Super Detroit; the second flywheel is special just to this engine. Now if I could only find the rest of the mower I would be all set.
