Ok has anyone else been getting annoyed at the descriptions of new snowblowers with the size engines in CC's!!!!??? I have no idea what 205cc's or 249cc's etc. are!!!! I have a 7hp blower. How many CC's is that? We definately need an equation chart in here to figure out engine size!!!!! :mad::mad::mad::confused:

Nice I have roughly 17 cu inch motor or 277ish CCs!!! It still irritates me that they can't just spit it out on their descriptions from the get go though!!!

Largest displacement they show on their engine site is 342 cc. Which, according to that chart, would be putting out about 12 hp.

Honda ratings:

GX120 119cc 4.0HP = 5.40 ft. pounds
GX160 163cc 5.5HP = 8.00 ft. pounds
GX200 196cc 6.5HP = 9.76 ft. pounds

OHV engines use less displacement to produce the the same HP as L-Heads.

Subaru engines are also suppose to be super efficient and can produce power with even less displacement.

Here was a discussion from last year on another site:

L heads are basically Flat heads from what I see!!! It's like the first Ford V8 but they are pretty bulletproof from what I see on here and experience first hand with my 37 year old beast!

Torque vs HP ratings

Guys,

I did see this one conversion system on another site, it looks like this:

TORQUE VS. HORSEPOWER

TORQUE X ENGINE SPEED = HORSEPOWER
5252

example: 12Ft.Lbs x 3400 rpms=7.7 Horsepower
5252
Remember, you'll have to determine at what rpm range your engine was rated, usually it is 3400 rpm tops.
