Honda wet clutch 2:1 reduction
I have a worn out GX160 with a wet clutch reduction unit on it I'd like $50 for it. I opened the reduction unit and the clutch and all looked to be in great shape. I never heard the engine run but was told it was getting worn out & burning oil so the real value of this is in the reduction unit. I'd consider parting it out to save on shipping, shipping the whole engine would run about $50 parcel post from zip 99687 I actually have 2 of these but one is missing a few parts. Here's what they sell for new.

It looks like the reduction unit is setup to go on an engine with a 20mm output shaft so if you're trying to put it on an engine with a smaller diameter like 3/4" you'll have to make a sleeve to make up the difference, unless you're putting it on a GX160 or a GX160 clone then I could include the crankshaft for you to swap out. If all you want is the reduction unit I'll sell it for $40 a little more if you want the crankshaft, shipping will be $15 if I can get it to fit in a large flat rate box. Here are some sprockets that will fit the 22mm output shaft on the reduction unit.
As far as payments, paypal would be fastest or you could send a cashiers check or a personal check but I'd have to delay sending it till it clears.
I did manage to get the engine started today, it smokes pretty bad and won't rev up much past idle I'd guess the rings are shot I didn't hear any horrible sounds coming from it though. here's a pic of the actual engine. If you want it PM me and we can discuss specifics

hey toofarnorth, I have a GX160 clone w/ reduction unit. I'm just wondering which oil is the best for the reduction unit (I've heard the same oil as the motor works fine). I saw a Valvoline ATV synthetic suitable for wet clutch use, but I'm not sure about it. and secondly, I found the dipstick on the R.U. really weird (is FULL at the top of the semi-circle portion of the dipstick?) Thanks for your help.

Hi Motorhead. You can just use ordinary oil in the reduction box. There is no need to get anything special. I have a manual with the oil specifications for the reduction box. Here are some snaps of the manual.
