    We have sold quite a few 30hp and no problems yet. Just got a 27hp in the shop today, but it is just trash in the fuel lines.

    I have one on an old Exmark, no problems so far. Always check and change oil regularly. :weightlifter:

    Lot of them running around down here. Most common failure down here appears to be the magnets in the flywheels. And that seems to only happen to ones that are starting to get into the 1500+ hour range.

    wonder why that is going on? i had a few last year with the same problem and its not cheap to fix at that.one broke the block and had to be short blocked.with the new flywheel and stator it was close to a replacment
