Honda 670 engine

" I purchased a Honda 670 engine to install in a 1978 wheel horse lawn tractor. It was very simple to install and runs absolutely fantastic. The only problem I encountered with the engine was the connection of the start system. Due to my limited knowledge and not so good of and explanation in the owners manual, I connect the wiring wrong and burned up the coils. The technicians at Northern Tool got it straight for me and it has been a wonderful engine ever since. It is extremely easy to start and very quiet for such a large engine. It is also very econonical on fuel. Thank you for selling a quality product. They can be hard to come by these days "

" Honda continues to produce the best engines out there. This engine is so lightweight that one person can lift it and place it. It starts easy and runs steady.
We use them to power hydraulic systems and to date we have not had problem with them.
I give this engine a 10 as far as performance. "

" I use the Honda V-Twin 670cc on a three inch centrifugal water pump for irrigation. It runs smooth and quiet and has enough power to lower the RPMs and run all day. "
