A real time saver

"I installed this on my go-cart to replace the 5hp Brigs that was worn out. I cranked it up and it immediately transported me to the moon. I will try again later with a lower octane fuel and see if it will slow down a little."

Honda 690cc Engine

"I used this engine to replace a worn out unit on a powerwasher. I was able to increase the output pressure on the washer by 400 psi. This engine starts easier and is more economical to run than the old unit. A REAL POWERHOUSE!"

"I installed the Honda GX690 on my 1973 garden tractor as a replacement for the original 16HP engine. The engine runs smoothly and is a good upgrade that will most likely outlast me."
