    SO I am trying to decide weather to overhaul or replace this gx160 engine of mine, got water down in the cylinder and ruined the bore.  when I am looking it up I am coming up with about 3 million different options for the engine, where is was made what year and so on.  without going to extremes can anyone tell me if these gx160 engines are all the same?

   mine is a gx160 163c,  qx2  gcaft-1023460  and I need gaskets, .010 oversized piston and rings.  any help ????

I've been told that they aren't worth rebuilding because of the cost of parts. Are you going to have to pay for the boring and valve grinding? Analyse the costs carefully. My friend who has played with them said that it was better to just replace with an HF engine. Coming to Zagray? Good Luck, Rick
