    Has anyone used the Honda OHV GXV160 with the PTO shaft . We got one that only 6 months old and is getting really hard to start seems low on compression but test O.K . The Carb has been cleaned / spark is fine choke is working . Are these any good .

    Valves need adjustment. OHV engines should be readjusted at about 20 to 50 hours from new. the GX160 is a freat eng. especialy used on go carts and power seeders and such.
