    check your compression - it will give you some idea about the health of the rings. make sure the motor is warm and you hold the throttle open.

    i havent heard of that but 200 hours is alot of hours and a top end rebuild isnt that hard
    pull off the exhaust and the head and cylinders replace the pistons and gaskets and break it in
    do the compression test and see then go from there
