I have a rotavator - a merrytiller thing that is as old as the hills for the garden. It orriginally had a Briggs and Stratton engine - unkown. When I bought it, it had a honda GX160 5.5hp on it. The guy that sold me this told me he had rebuilt the head on it as the valve stem oil seals went - after 18 months they went again and I decided to confine it to a corner - as it was the same problem again, I thought the issue could be deeper (or a bad rebuild).
I came across a 168F
engine for a good price and ordered one yesterday - it came today.
From what I hear, they are a chinese rip off of the Honda unit - hence being called a Chonda.
Anyone got any experience with them? Before I start it up, I will make sure everything is nice and tight. The manual that came with it had some pictures that left me in stitches - like the engine crying if it has no oil in it or it being sick if the valve clearence is off.
