Brand new original Honda engines with some scratches and dents. 
We are not an authorized Honda dealer, and the manufacturers' warranty will not apply.
These engines are bulk packed, in boxes of three, so for individual sale they have been reboxed in plain brown boxes. 

Completely redesigned for 2011, the new GX160 offers lower noise levels, lower vibration, and lower emissions – without sacrificing power output or performance. And the new GX160 essentially matches the dimensions of the previous model, so no modifications to existing equipment designs are necessary.
