I found these Subaru/Robin take off engines that are missing carb and fuel tanks at smallenginewarehouse.com , the cyl tips to the rear at a 45° angle instead of the front like the predator's. The also dad gc160 Honda's for $170. Thinking about trying on out on a build, anyone have any experience with these engines

They have 3 in stock ( another listing has 2) also have 3 with carbs for $125, as well as (4) 4 hp at $90 as well. I am also looking at the Honda's that start at $170. These Honda's have a true vertical cyl, reminds me of a B&S but with OHV. My only experience is with a hs 50 cc 4stroke and I want to build a fat tire ride with a bit more power, I weigh 250 and do not think 50cc will be enough to power 4" tires off road.

Yea I have one, haven't got it running yet but should be interesting, it is a 169cc OHC. Could probably get it to rev better than a 212
