Great price on a good small engine. Base was to small as well the shaft size. I haven't found anything to use on it yet. Run well on mini bike.Good overall engine quiet but runs rich carb has no fuel mixture adjustments. For my application this little motor works just fine. I bought it due to the shaft size, the moto.. I bought it due to the shaft size, the motor size, and the cost.
I got it only to realize, while it was much the same exact replacement, the mower mounting holes on the side of the carb were not the same as my original. I added oil as per instructions. Attached my throttle cable up. Pulled the cord and it fired up after two pulls. However no matter how much I tried to use the throttle - either mine or the supplied one - it would not increase in speed.
There must be a governor. Nothing in the manual states that, nor does it explain how to bypass it.
Not so much the exahust, but the motor seems to rattle and just make a racket. So if you need a quiet motor I don't recommend it. If you need one that is speed restricted with a governor, then I say this is you motor. I also disconnected the oil sensor due to the application, which bounces this motor around at times. It would shut down right after take off.
Disconnect it and works great. Too much kickback when starting motor. It is so forceful it will jerk the pull string out of your hand.
Other than that -- the few times we have used it -- it runs fine. Product was delivered on time and in good condition with no damages. Worked great for my application.
Only complaint/issue I have come across is the pull cord seems very wobbly when pulling. It seems to pull solid one pull and wobbly and grinding noises the next pull. Still works though, at about 100-125 pulls so far. I recently bought this after hearing mixed reviews because of the price and size of the engine.
For my application (minibike) it is a bit hit or miss. Since the bike does lean on turns or up down hills the oil level sensor shuts me down sometimes but at least I know it works. Simple solution for me is just leave oil sensor unplugged and check oil before and after each ride to ensure engine is full enough.
Great easy engine runs great n does whatI need it to do. Bought this motor to replace my son's Monster Moto Mini Bike motor.
Had to change the gas tank because the frame was blocking the cap. No problem just took the gas tank off the old one switch them out, they both had the same mounting bracket. He's been riding it for a week and the pull cord broke, so I just took the old rope off the old motor... I did have a problem with the'low oil shutoff'. When my son took off the motor would shut off.Thats because the oil was'swishing' around and the sensor would shut it off. So I the disconnect the low oil sensor wire and now he's riding all over the yard.
So fall the motor doing well. Overall Im glad I got it.2.5 or 3.0? So far its running out well, easy start and great fuel usage. I'm using it as a boat generator. I couldn't tell you why two diferant horsepower motors show under the same order number?
I ordered a 3HP and when delivered it showed 2.5. I have read several therorys on this ranging from metric ratings, to its a 3 that gets badged to a 2.5 when ordered. I can tell you it powers my system as calculated, so its providing me with the 3HP at 3700 rpm. This engine definitely seems stronger and runs under less strain than the previous unit (from another brand). I will be purchasing more to replace older/failing engines.
