Can I get one that rotates counterclockwise.

Asked by: fuzzbud
you can if you have a welder. just weld a pipe behind the motor with a bearing on each side. then get a small driveshaft, weld 1 sprocket on one side, slip it through the tube, and weld another sprocket on the other side. run a chain from the engine to the right sprocket, and a chain from the left sprocket to the sprocket on the wheel or driveshaft. that's the only way i can think of.

5/8 in. 3 HP 97.7cc OHV Recoil Start Horizontal Shaft Engine is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lifan 3 HP engine Product was delivered on time and in good condition with no damages. Worked great for my application. Only complaint/issue I have come across is the pull cord seems very wobbly when pulling. It seems to pull solid one pull and wobbly and grinding noises the next pull. Still works though, at about 100-125 pulls so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lifan 3hp gas engine I recently bought this after hearing mixed reviews because of the price and size of the engine. For my application (minibike) it is a bit hit or miss. Since the bike does lean on turns or up down hills the oil level sensor shuts me down sometimes but at least I know it works. Simple solution for me is just leave oil sensor unplugged and check oil before and after each ride to ensure engine is full enough. Great easy engine runs great n does whatI need it to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mini Bike Motor Bought this motor to replace my son's Monster Moto Mini Bike motor. Had to change the gas tank because the frame was blocking the cap. No problem just took the gas tank off the old one switch them out, they both had the same mounting bracket. He's been riding it for a week and the pull cord broke,so I just took the old rope off the old motor ... no problems after that. I did have a problem with the "low oil shutoff". When my son took off the motor would shut off. Thats because the oil was "swishing" around and the sensor would shut it off. So I the disconnect the low oil sensor wire and now he's riding all over the yard. So fall the motor doing well. Overall Im glad I got it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent engine. Purchased to replace another 79cc engine with similar ratings. This engine definitely seems stronger and runs under less strain than the previous unit (from another brand). I will be purchasing more to replace older/failing engines. Definitely recommend them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2.5 or 3.0 ?? So far its running out well, easy start and great fuel usage. I'm using it as a boat generator. I couldn't tell you why two diferant horsepower motors show under the same order number? I ordered a 3HP and when delivered it showed 2.5. I have read several therorys on this ranging from metric ratings, to its a 3 that gets badged to a 2.5 when ordered. I can tell you it powers my system as calculated, so its providing me with the 3HP at 3700 rpm.
