in a deal with a private buyer its an AS IS policy unless he knew it was shot and failed to tell you there really aint much to do unless there was a contract stating a warrinty you need to try and talk to him and ask for at least half of your money back, but sorry to say there really aint much to do you more or less got screwed that is the risk of private sales
