    I heard you cannot bore the Generacs, which motors can you bore and rebuild on the big twins? Thanks!

    Boring lawnmower engines is not cost effective....
    Most engine mfrs do not offer oversize pistons...
    The cost of the labor.... the machinework ...and the parts usually exceeds the price of a shortblock..
    Unless of course you had your own machineshop...and were a master engine builder...
