Does the governor seal (91231-891-003) for the GCV160 work on the GCV170 the engine for the HRN series?

Worst thing that can happen is it not fit, if it fits, you may save some people a headache. (y)

Yes it is the same seal considering the GCV170 and GCV170H uses the same crankcase. Oil seal shows on the GCV170H series, types N2EE,N2KE. I don't see why it will not work on all the same crankcase.

I have installed the governor seal Honda# 91231-891-003 on my new HRN216 mover. It has the GCV 170 engine.
It fits, is the correct part.
It took me about 20 minutes total, I took my time. It's disappointing that Honda opted not to include it on the engine.
There was oil residue already (before the seal), after less than an hour of use.
The online videos were a big help, especially the one from Taryl Fixes All.
Thanks also to Scrubcadet10.
