Default Re: Here I go again,Briggs build

That nice engine platform with that frame the way the bars are, have the engine fully level!

I can look up the engine for the Honda, but I was wondering if anyone knows if the throw of the crankshaft in that Honda is shorter in comparison to the 3hp Briggs 4 stroke I have, 80202 0430.

In the past, I had a Clinton engine and with the shorter throw of the crank and it resulted with same the same horsepower as other same displacement (used larger diameter piston) as another Briggs I owned, but had more torque (Brake Horsepower).

It sort of had your arm muscles work with the recoil more, but running it was one of the best engines for get up and go in slower trail riding.
