I have an older Honda HR214 with the aluminum deck. The engine smokes on startup and sometimes a little bit during operation. I have an opportunity to buy a brand new in the factory box never fired GXV120 engine. My question is this. Are all the GXV120 engines the same? Can I do a straight swap out, or are certain GXV120 specific to the machine that they are used on? The one in question is a 4hp. I’m not sure what the H.P on my current HR214 is. Also what’s the going rate for a brand new engine? Thank you all.

Show me some detailed pictures for example front, back and sides Or send your GXV120 and I will rebuild it for you. Send me a private message and we can talk about the rebuild. I have performed two GXV (one 120 and one 140) rebuilds and my rebuilds are not just "Slapped" together. It is a Meticulous rebuild. You actually found a "Brand new" GXV120?, whats the price?

Also if you buy that engine make sure it have PTO shaft to drive your trans.
