All,
I am ready to order a new ring set for my GXV120 engine on my HR 214SX mower and want to get the latest style for this engine. I am addressing the worn out ring issue because of the smoke on startup. I thought I read somewhere there is a new style 3 piece oil ring that performs better than the original one piece. Is this a true statement? I do not need to oversize, just the standard bore as the cylinder is fine. I want to make sure I get the correct style and am sure someone can point me to the right place to get them. A part number would be great too. I want to replace the oil seals while I am in there too.
My engine S/N is GXV120 1155778. This one was made in Japan.

Thanks in advance.

Jeff

Correct - the 3pc is much better, and I believe that Honda has updated all thier parts to that style.

While the specific model # is best, when I was work8ng on my GXV140, I found that all variants are currently using ths same part number, so not sure if there is a difference on the GXV120 . . . Engine info should be stamped in the block casting, and the mower model and serial will likely take you where you need to be as well.

Honda engine part diagrams on their push mowers are tied to the mower model and serial number. But sometimes the engine model, prefix, serial number, and suffix will pop up for the mower it was used on.

Ok, let me get this straight. I must be slow in my old age. LOL

My mower is a HR 214 SX. On a stamp on the deck is HR 214 EC. Plus there is another tag with 1045238 embossed on it. That with the serial number on the engine stated in my first post is all I have.

I believe this is the diagram for your engine. It shows the single piece oil control ring with no supercession to a newer number

W ill this ring set fit my GXV 120? I want the most superseded part for my mower. If it is a known issue with the old style oil ring I do not want to reinstall the same old style oil ring if possible.
I thought I saw someone on here did actually find a three piece for a GXV 120.
