"it's a Honda".... which to me, means to "chuck it"....

 

Well, seeing how Dad has $25.00 in it, and I have $35.00 in it, I'm not willing to go that far. This is my first attempt at rebuilding a motor, so even if it doesn't work out, neither Dad or myself lost a whole lot, but with the wisdom I'm gaining of how to do it correctly, I feel like that much is priceless especially if there should ever be an opportunity like this again.

Oh, and if I'm fortunate to being successful with the rebuild, I'll have a $500.00 pressure washer for under $100.00 (not including my time)

At work we had a Honda generator that ate spark plugs and drank oil. Rebuilt somewhere around 11000 hours and retired with 14000 hours. It served very well. Honda and construction go hand in hand.

My Ditch witch has a Honda engine, When I got it it smoked way to bad to use even 30 miles out of town. When i took it apart I removed the rings from the piston. They would almost drop through the cylinder under their own weight. I didn't measure the end gap but it was in the neighborhood of 1/2 inch. I miked the cylinder and it was in tolerance by .001 piston was ok to. I gave it a quick hone and installed new rings. The end gap was.003 under the max. Even with the bad rings it started easy and seemed to run fine. Since the rings it has only dug about 200 yards of ditch but that was in hard packed very rocky soil. Lots of river rock up to large grape fruit size. I have a total of 125. invested so I say it payed for it's self. Don

You guys aren't gonna like this. just like the old Dodge vs Ford vs Chevy debate that has been going on forever

but like the old saying goes... "it's a Honda".... which to me, means to "chuck it"....

  I have had people say the same thing about Kohler and Wisconsin I just tell them to chuck them my way. None have showed up yet. Don

Wisconsins and Kohler K and Magnums... I feel the same way. but when it comes to Honda I'd rather have a Tecumseh, even, vs a Honduh...

I'm scared to ask but how do you feel about Briggs & Stratton? Personally I would rather work on them. Just my luck I guess.
