    What is your overall favorite engine? Consider serviceability, performance, replacement parts required, etc.

    I dont know, I likemy 20HP OHV Liquid Cooled just fine though. I dont think there was ever a problem with it, except the one time the radiator got clogged up due to hard water deposits, but thats not even the "engine" really.

    Kawasaki are my choice. Make more torque.

    Ditto. I sure hope no one chooses other and says "Tecumseh". Man, them things deserve the name "Tecrapsy". My power washer has one, and my grandfathers tiller too. They have such a jerk-back on the starter rope! I've almost yanked my hand off so many times trying to start them things.

    I voted for Kawasaki for large engine but I feel Honda is the best by far in the small engine catagory

    Yep, agree there. I think just about everyone will agree on that one.

    I won't agree. I think the very small hondas are awesome, but when they get from 13hp and up I think they are not that great.
