This engine was well-packed and had no damage to the product whatsoever. The milled parts of the machine are smooth and appear to have no imperfections. With a little fuel and the provided pull-string, it started up right away on the first try. Played with this micro engine several times and it performed perfectly each time. Very Satisfied.
Beautiful made engine; runs well and is very nice to look at. Got it running out of the packaging very easily. Started work on a custom base & exhaust immediately :-) Very happy with my purchase!
I had a good time playing with this little engine. I also bought the vertical one at the same time. I am using 95 octane gasoline for fuel and made some YouTube videos using and reviewing these engines. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfhGylRyTvD4Yc-xfoSi2m5_sE5qM0uNh
very nice engine. well made. fired up easily and ran for 90 minutes non stop. add a2 drops of miracle oil to the fuel to lubricate head and cylinder. installed a plug clip and shaved a bit of wood from the stand so that the fuel line had no kinks.
