7 HP 212cc 4-stroke OHV industrial grade gas engine
The Lifan 7.0 starts easy and runs smooth. Initially had a leaky valve cover gasket, but it was an easy fix. Just a little readjusting and tightening. Using it to repower a 20 year old McLane mower. Running better than new now.
Pros: Started on the first pull, runs smooth.
Cons: The shafts bolt is standard thread but the mounting bolts around the shafts are metric (minus one star). Cut off switch on the front of the engine is somewhat inconveniently placed.
Summary: this was a replacement engine on a rear tine tiller. Easy install after a free 2nd day delivery.
