Wrong One

"I ordered the wrong motor but the return and exchange was easy. The correct motor was send quickly and charges, adjusted correctly. Honda makes a good motor. The only problem I encountered was some incorrect measurments on motor drawings & pictures on Northerns Tools Web Site. We made adjustments on site."

honda engine

"Great running engine, and very reliable. However, I had to bypass the fuel tank and use a 5 gal container for longer engine run time. When I did this, I neglected to change the in- line fuel filter (that I also installed). this caused the engine to run rough, and the intake valve stuck open. I was able to pull off the head, clean the valve,and the engine ran great again. After changing the fuel filter I have had no further trouble. This engine is used on a ranch to run a water pump. It runs about 20 hours a week."
