I purchased this engine to use on a longtail mud motor in both salt and fresh water as an alternative to the Honda GX390. The dimensions were exactly as they were described and fit the frame perfectly. I would have no hesitation recommending this engine to anyone who wants a quality engine without the price tag.

Quality is far beyond the price. My dad is very happy with the birthday gift. He runs it on his pressure washer and he said this is one of the best engine that he has.
