    John. I use Small Engine Warehouse. I think Andy turned me onto them years ago.
    I have bought engines for my Dingo and small chipper through them. Honda even honored the warranty when my replacement lost a cylinder on my 24hp twin. I just took it to the nearest dealer with the service records.
    They will probably be able to figure a replacement for you based on the engine numbers. Good priced as well. And the keep a record of you so if you need another they know which one the order.

    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    Honda. They'll sit all winter and start on the first or second pull. I had a Honda copy engine on a generator. It was a good engine but plagued me with enough small problems that I finally sold it. Carb problems, cheap wiring that was always vibrating the connections loose. Finally bought a true Honda generator. It's been great. Both me and my Dads splitter has Honda. Works flawlessly. I raced Honda dirt bikes for 25 years. They're the best.

    I have never understood the almost religious like devotion to Honda.

    Good engines sure, but not the only ones out there.

    B and S is just as good now.

    The Chinese copies are not bad....especially for something like a log splitter.

    20 years ago nothing was as good as Honda. Now pretty much everything is.


    Honda has also cheapened up some in the last few years and has released some junk.


    Stick with the Red and White.....not the Black Hondas.

    Jim, i do beleove the black vs red and white is an older concern.

    The GX are the pro grade Honda's, while the GC are the lower end. I believe they used to color coat, but now GX also come in black.

    My love affiar with Honda comes from MX. The materials and craftsman ship of them are obvious next to other manufacturers.

    Absolutely no doubt about that.


    If'f I were to buy a dirt bike it would for sure be Honda.


    I wish that Honda would have never come out with the GC engine.
