does anyone know any good aplications for the honda gx160? like as in puting it on a bike,or gokart.stuff like that

currentently the motor is being used on a power washer but the water pressurizing system is about to break so the engine needs a new use!

Seriously? You gotta ask that here? Look around! We're SWAMPED with what to do with one of the most popular 4-stroke industrial engines of all time!

And- why not rebuild the pump?

The sky is the limit! (so that means you can't make a space ship using it). Applications related to the this forum could be any form of go-kart (a lot of them), mini bike, motorized bicycle or other moving vehicle.

Edit: I like the way the flipping table guy seems to relate to the tag "I don't have a camera!!". It's like you're flipping tables yelling I don't have a camera!!

Lots of presure washer engines have tapered output shafts without a keyway, you'd need a keyed/non-tapered output shaft to install a clutch or tc. The only way to know for sure is to remove your engine from the pump asembly to see what type of output shaft it has.

Replace the shaft on the GX160 with a straight and keyed one.
Or get a clone and put on the gx160 head, and sell the gx160 with a clone head and thinner head gasket. Hmmm.
