McLane Replacement Motor

"My McLane Reel Mower had a bad motor so I replaced it with the Honda GX120UT2QX2 . Fit perfectly and now works so much better than a Briggs and Stratton Motor. Starts first pull everytime and runs alot better without the noise and vibration of the B&S. Yes, it costs more than a B&S but it is worth it. This is a quality engine and an excellent value."

Honda OHV Engine

"My Troy Built tiller motor died so I needed to buy a new tiller or replace the engine. The tiller was 19 years old and I could not find a replacement engine specifically for it so decided to order the Honda OHV 120 cc engine from Northern. It was close in size. Took about 1 hour to install. Had to replace a worn drive belt, and one bolt to attach the pulley to the engine. The engine mounting bolt holes all matched perfectly and I had in it running great in about 2 hours. It works better that it has in years. Great replacement engine for my old Troy Built tuffy tiller."

"I had to replace my Honda engine that had been in use for nearly 10 years. I was concerned about the installation of the new one and if everything would fit properly.
But to my surprise, the installation was so easy and it took me less than 1/2 hour to install, service and start running it. This engine sets out in the weather 24/7 and has never failed to start. It runs smoothly for the 8-12 hours a day I run it. The best engine yet, reliabe and performs like a pro.

4 h.p. Honda engine

By scotts435

"I decided to try a Honda engine when the engine I had quit making spark after only a year of part time service. I only wish I had bought one sooner! It only took three pulls to start in single digit weather and usually only one pull will start it. The large fuel cap on the top mounted fuel tank makes fueling with gloves and in low light conditions simple. Very low vibration at any throttle setting. Pull rope is heavier gauge than similar disp. engines. A little more money to purchase but well worth it!"
