Lost motor


#1

Honda gx 690 update. Last year lost governor on machine with 2700 hours. I fixed that one but swore to never do it gain. Lost one yesterday with 3200 hours. Other than coil packs, life span seems to be in the 3000 hour range.


#2

Do you keep engines on hand?


#3

I have a rebuilt that I put on the truck if it goes out of state. I stopped by Landa today and had them put a new one on. It’s black. Not really liking the all black honda


Yesterday I owed them nothing. Not so much when I left lol


#4

you lie, you got a Predator engine.

Regardless, at ~$.60 an hour, thats not too bad.


#5

And i see your pruchase of pump oil…

I have been using 30w non-detergent,nothin cute or fancy… only changed once on new machine, but next week on schedule to do another… should i be using the General Pump Oil they sell?


#6

They serviced the pump when they swapped motors. Probably needed it after 5000 hours lol


#7

Lol… i will not push it that far


#8

That’s probably the same thing in the general pump bottle.


#9

The all black Hondas are awesome!


#10

I really liked the red and now the fung sway vibe is mesed up. Red on one side of the truck and black on the other lol


#11

I like the red.

imagine riding down the road and you see a 1985 Honda Big Red, but its black? Not a Big Red.

What if firetrucks were black? That would just be weird


#12

Tomato potato


#13

Hugger orange. If fire trucks and hondas were hugger orange I’d be happy


#14

Hugger orange? Like the General Lee?


#15

I’m ashamed to say it started as a chevy color, but I love it.


#16

I got those two big work tables primed and one leg of them painted with ford tractor blue and it’s my new favorite color.


#17

I can dig that. Try some grabber green on the other table


#18

How is shop working out for ya?


#19

I’m giving one to my dad because he said he wants a workbench to mount the 6 inch grinder I got him for fathers day. Lol so it has to be blue and he’s getting a ridiculously stout 8’ x 2’ work table. He wouldn’t dig the green very much. I don’t know how I’m going to get the work tables delivered without renting a trailer and using a come-along. They’re so heavy. haha

@Donut757 I’ve been in it long enough to get the trailer, fill chem tanks, and drop the trailer off. So far I haven’t been able to use it much, but I’m building this work table in my garage and just met with the insurance guy on Monday to get everything covered before I move it all in. The sign on the road has been good though. Gotten enough calls this month to cover my rent on it.
