Replace GCV160 with Predator Engine - Lawn Mower

Jan 24, 2020  I'm about 80% complete with my first GCV160 rebuild (replacing a bent crank shaft), just waiting on on two parts (flywheel bolt and PTO drive pulley). Then I will be able to test my skills. I found torque specs for the GCV160 and utilize proper nut bolt specs throughout the rebuild. Hopefully the engine will start on the first or second pull.

Honda GCV160 Bob Is The Oil Guy

Sep 27, 2008  My new GCV190 seems to be very powerful. Much more so than the GCV160. The engine on the 190 sounds deeper and more powerful to. I was quite surprised when I first started it. My 160 engine says 5.5 hp on it (7yrs old). So I'm guessing the 190 is at least 6.5.

Honda GCV160A My Lawnmower Forum

Mar 08, 2013  Kind of hard to think about lawn mowers with snow coming down, but I tinkered more with the GCV160, and got the rest of that Honda bond sealant off of the cylinder block and oil pan. One feature that is more annoying than anything on these engines is the fact that they used bolts to hold the carb, gaskets and air box to the engine.

honda gcv160 vs gcv190 - Houzz

Self propelled, mulcher/rear bagger. I mulch 80% of the time. I want to stick with the Honda engine because it seems to be more reliable than the BS, from what I've read. It's narrowed down to Honda and Toro mowers at this point. Honda has the GCV190 engine and Toro residential mowers are available with the GCV160 engine.

GCV160 on a Honda HRX217? - LawnSite™ - Lawn Care ...

Sep 26, 2020  I suspect that Honda put the GCV190 on it's HRX217 line for a reason; that is, HRX's are heavy, heavy. My manual says that mine is 104 lbs. vs 69 for the GCV160-powered HRR216, for example. I also suspect that the transmission on the HRX, while very strong, requires more help from the engine in order to do its job. Anyway, I am not giving up yet.

Honda GCV 160 Engine Bob Is The Oil Guy

Apr 07, 2019  I bought my first Honda 21" mower in 1999 and AFAIK, was the first model year for one with a GCV160. It's the basic steel decked, single speed self propelled model.

Add throttle control to a GCV160 powered lawn mower

My Craftsman propane mower conversion with the GCV160 has a throttle. You'd need a different carb (about $15) and the cable and throttle control. The Sears parts would probably work. Your mower is designed to cut grass with the engine and blade runnning at full speed.
