Grubby rusty thing, but I rotated it by hand and the compression felt crisp and snappy like new...Possibilities abound. First guy hit it at $15, I bid second at $20 and that was it:J

Drained the very stale gas out of it, noting the fuel shut off was in the off position when I got it. Pulled the rotten old air filter off and opened the gas valve up after pouring in some fresh gas. Ha! Started right up!:D:pdOd

So.. now I'm thinking how it can be put into a tractoR ? It does not have a electric starter or charging system, but I thought maybe one could put a old starter generator and PTO driven pulley from a old Cub Cadet on it. If that would work, is there the possibility of a driveshaft adaptor to be installed? Never had one of these Hondas apart to know. Anyone ever given thought to anything like this?

I cant answer your questions but I'm sure there's a way to put a pulley on it and use a S/G...I've seen your fab work, I have no doubt that can end up in a tractor....... Nice score dOd 11HP OHV Honda for $20 is a theft cop

Yes, Pressure washer, and a danged expensive one when new from the looks of it. I wont toss the pump as it may also still be in working order. The pressure washer I'm using now was bought the same way. Bought it for the engine and a few years later put another engine on it to try it out before junking it, and lo and behold it actually worked. The pressure hose on this one has a hole in it, otherwise I dont see any external damage. Before I take the engine off I may go buy a hose and some fittings to put my wand I already have and such on it, throw some belts on it and give it a try.. Who knows??..

Always wanted to mount a pressure washer pump on the rear of the tractor. Driven off cone clutch pulley. Using a vaccum blower type set-up. But the pump and regulator off the homebuilt electric washer gave up building pressure. Ended up buying a gaspowered set-up. If it is a brand name pump, rebuild kits are avaiable. At 11hp could be a 4000psi pump :D
