do a search. most will say they are very good - just as good if not better than the kaw and kohler.

got a 31 hp in the shop now for all new valves, at 780 hours.

been running synthetic in it since 100 hours, and changing the oil and filter at 50 hour intervals.

I got a 21hp vanguard on my ZTR. I like it and have never had any problems.
