A guy here that is on an electronics forum claimed to have a twin horozontal of this type a couple of months ago.
I was interested in it and asked for more info but he's regularly a stuck up knob and was again only giving kurt answers to questions I asked about it.
I didn't indulge him further and also wasn't real believing of him either.

I have never seen these advertised on any of the chinese trade sites ( which was another reason for my skepticism) or seen any others on YT so I would think they are a fairly rare item.
I'd grab one in a heartbeat if I could find them though.

I would tend to think they probably aren't made any more or the people making them are very far and few between. They sell all sorts of engines on those trade sites but the fact despite my many hours of trolling through them I have never seen one leads me to believe they were probably a limited run from some time in the past and unlikley to be produced now.

There are some Kubota 400cc horizontal cylinder twins on ebay right now (in Greece).
Ebay.com item 302423908434 if anyone is interested.

I just bought the one in the first post a few weeks ago.  I didn't realize twins were an oddball.  The manual was saying it can use parts from a changfa r175. It doesn't say which parts though.

I haven't taken any pics yet.  It is literally the generator in that first post with the YouTube link. I brought it home in a snow storm so I wrapped it in plastic and shrink-wrap.  I haven't unwrapped it yet because we have been having oddball snowstorms and i5s sitting on my porch at the moment. Hopefully this warm week we have had marks the end of the snow. I'll probably unwrap it this weekend.  I need to get a gen shed set up.
