It still starts right up though. Just time for something better. If the new ones were $1000 and up, I'd just do the ring job and keep it going.
Run it out of gas and get some non ethanol gas or even that fake gas, then run it out again. Your new one will never break if it knows a backup is waiting in the wings!
