For the money you will not find a better engine anywhere. All I had to do was open up the low enf 1/2 turn and this engine game to life. It is very easy to start and had loads of power. Play my Phoenix P-47 around around with ease.
This is a great engine for the price. This engine is as strong or stronger then my other 55cc engines. It was a little hard to start at first but I opened the low end 1/4 turn and now it starts with in 3 flips every time. If you are looking for a 55cc class engine you won't find a better one at any price. I would recommend this engine to anyone.
A very powerful engine at a very marketable price! For the enlightened shopper, you can't go wrong. This engine will outperform those costing twice as much. Once broken in properly, it will give years of reliable service!
