Yep ! Saw a van and crappy truck mount for $1800 recently on Crazy List and thought about doing it over with that very engine.I here people put these engines on go carts. Their kids run the crap out of them everyday and they keep running just like any other name brand engine that they have used on the same go cart.
DIY 22 HP with a 45 blower and a fuel fired heater would make a pretty good backup machine. If engine blows up at 2000 hours throw it away and put another Predator 22 HP engine on and keep cleaning .
Yes sir ! Son in law did small engine repair in a machine shop for awhile and told me parts bolt right up a lot of times between these engines. One of the first things they reverse engineered was the Jeep Cherokee . Sold like hot cakes all over Asia and of course was much less expensive !! LOL !!From what I heard the chinese had some corporate espionage with honda on the vtwin they stole the design and honda sued them so they changed the bore and stroke a few millimeters and boom predator twin. It's essentially a honda,the dimensions are the same. The chinese have pretty much perfected their machining process.
Look what the chinese did to chevy,,,lolYes sir ! Son in law did small engine repair in a machine shop for awhile and told me parts bolt right up a lot of times between these engines.

All the Best, Ed
Sure !! So far as I know they do not recognize patents and could care less .Companies put up with it because it's not worth the fight.
hahahaha that's classic. check out this description of the design of one of the SUVs
All you need is a battery and some oil your ready to rock and roll...... I was thinking of buying one for when my kohler goes out which it will at some point I don't expect it to last forever...... For under 600 bucks you can't beat it for a 22hp engineThat's a great price! Does it have electric start?
Yep it'll work. Most small engines have common crank sizes and if it is different you get a new insert for the pulley and it'll work. The footprint for these motors is generic unless it's one of the older Onans.So if you buy one of these to replace an old motor, do you need to be careful about the output shaft diameter, or the distance from the shaft center-line to the mounting plate, or what? Or just buy it and hope? I've got a Cub XL that has a 16 horse B&S but started out with a B&S V-twin 18 horse. Will this work?
