Mini Petter 3.5hp or 5hp
« on: November 28, 2009, 03:11:15 AM »

Looking for a mini-petter engine.
Required is a 3.5 or 5hp water cooled mini petter.
A used one with minimal hours would be fine.

It's unfortunate that reliable versions of these little engines are hard to find.
The more I learn about them, the more I realize it's a real crap shoot. Getting a good one is like playing the lottery.
Since I started looking for a mini-petter a few weeks back, I have heard nothing but bad stories.
I'm surprised to learn of all the troubles they have. I'm sure there are a few good ones out there, but it seems they must be imported from specific suppliers who do a better manufacturing job than the others.
Too bad, I would have loved to get a good one for my small battery charging project.

"SEARCH ENDED"  :(
