HP verus CC

Years ago snow blowers motors used to be in Horsepower .
Now they are rate in cc's .

Is there a formula for converting HP to CC ?

I have a 13.50 cc one and 16.50 cc one both Briggs & Straton . What do those figures mean in HP ?

Except your 13.50 and 16.50 are foot pounds of torque and not cc.

I think that web site is off a bit. my 208cc predator is rated at 7 hp and hondas 190 5 are 5.5 hp.

its hard to put an hp number on an enging just by the displacement of it. a good cam can give a smaller motor more hp than a motor with more diplacement ( cc's )

Yes, I gathered that after reviewing the info that simplicity solid provided.

It took a lot of mystery out of how they go about the various ratings.
I prefer the simple HP ratings like it used to be but we are in a forever changing world. Eventually some other wild and wonderful terminology will probably take over from CC and HP

Don't let me get started on the metric system that was imposed on us years ago here in Canada so they could make everything in the stores a smaller size and charge more for it knowing full well us old ones wouldn't try to figure it out even though we knew by viewing and comparing the physical size we were getting ripped off
Guess its OK for young 'uns that learn it in school but I will never give up my rulers and tape measures in inches and feet etc.
