I have had three of these, two as replacements for faulty engines, the first one tightened up and wouldn't run, it's replacement came with a noisy lumpy bearing, the second replacement was the same, very noisy and lumpy bearing. C'mon HK get your act together and sort out the dodgy bearings or ditch these engines altogether, which would be a shame as it is seems overall to be a good engine.Good engine but I had to remove the choke because of Turbulence's . On back position or high speed it did not work properly. Without the Choke it' ok! I set a 14x8. Just remove the little screw and little metal rounded piece on the carburetor. It's a bit less powerful than the .91 ASP nitro.
Problème d'arrivée d'air, sans le choke (en l'enlevant complètement via petite vis) ou avec capot moteur c'est ok! Un peu moins puissant que l'ASP .91 mais néanmoins très correct. J'en recommanderai certainement d'autres.good engine, powerful and well-functioning .... unfortunately broke the rod and are now more than four months that is not available. Dear HK for this great inconvenience I have to give a low rating does not so much for the engine but for the assistance. Spare parts are important ...Don't wast your money on this engine.The one weakness is fatal in that it has no needle bearing in the conrod big end. even running on 20 to1 oil i've had two seize on the crank pin distort out of shape break a piece out of the piston and then they have no spare rods in stock. What a shame as the beam mounts with excellent carby mount is a winner in design
