Honda Small Engine Repair and Replacement

When looking for an engine for my John Deere tractor I make sure that it of the highest quality and performance. There’s only one order option, a Honda Small Engine. Don’t let the word “small” confuse you. This engine packs more than just a punch. If, like me, you do not wish to wake up the family or your neighbors with the roar of your engine this is the perfect solution for you. Quiet operation allows me to get to work earlier. The fact that very few emissions are produced from the engine insures that I get the performance I need while not destroying the environment.

    I have a 24 horsepower Honda motor. Can it be put in a John Deere 400? If so ~~~~ I need a 1″ shaft that will bolt to the flywheel to power hydrostat.

    I AM REPLACING A 16HP ONAN ENGINE ON MY CASE 446, SN# 140600779. MY FRIEND INSTALLED YOUR 24HP HONDA ON HIS 446 AND HAD TO CUT ONE INCH OFF OF THE DRIVE SHAFT TO FIT THE TRACTOR. HAS THE KIT BEEN UPDATED? WHAT IS THE COST? DELIVERY TIME FROM ORDER DATE?
    THANKS,
    IS THERE A SMALLER ENGINE THAT IS COMPATIBLE?

    I’m looking at your repower kit for a John Deere 265. It has a 17 hp Kawasaki engine now. Will this engine fit directly on the frame with no modifications required? Does it include a new clutch?
    Why the choke cable, this lawn mower has one cable to the throttle which also engages the choke when pushed wide open.
    Do I have to add a choke push pull button in the dash? Will the existing starting, ignition, charging wires and switch work? Also will the fuel line fit or does something have to be modified?
    Thanks,
    Joe

    i have a 1986 john deere 316 with an onan will i have any major modifications if i go with the honda gx630

  10. Brandon Huber says:

    Thomas,

    The only modification required with the 316 involves the mounting. We provide you with 2 options there:

    1. We send a bolt in mounting plate. This will bolt down to the Onan bolt pattern and it is slotted for fine tuning of the engine placement. If this plate is used, you will need to cut a hole int he right side panel for clearance of the oil fill cap and dipstick located on/near the valve cover.

    2. If you prefer not to notch the side panel, drill new holes in the plate and discard the mounting plate. We include a shorter belt for your mower deck if you go this route.

    If you have further questions, please feel free to call me direct at 541-636-2371.
