    That should work just fine. There are many, many engine options available because of all that space available in the RIM and Max IV.

    The clutch should work fine, but the bolt pattern to mount the engine is bound to be different.

    Hi Tatim; your honda will work ok ,some things to adapt ,one word of caution is that hondas dont seem to like cold starts and cold running due to all the plastic timing gears, ive removed the hondas from my units and went with briggs, even my grain augers and water pumps are now on briggs due to hard starts and busted cam gears that honda seems to have in the winter

    A Mans level of mechanical education directly corresponds to the level pain suffered while getting it
