Seemed fine in box on arrival and throughout initial setup. Took on a short trip at low speed with minimal bouncing/vibration and a tube broke off, which I think is an emissions hose that vents the gas tank into air cleaner. Emailed Lifan and went ahead to temporarily fix with super glue and electrical tape. Took another short trip and attempted to test. Got some sputtering out of it and a couple backfires but no startup. Then the ignition switch fell off. I emailed Lifan again and hope to hear back tomorrow (Tuesday after Memorial Day). Also left a voicemail on their landline in Arkansas. Toll-free number was disconnected which is concerning, but hopefully it works during normal business hours. Posting this review to cover myself in case Lifan doesn't step up to help me out. I'm in Alaska so not sure how that's going to go. Put quite a bit of time and effort into setup of this engine, so if they're lemons that will be a bummer.

Cons: The shafts bolt is standard thread but the mounting bolts around the shafts are metric (minus one star). Cut off switch on the front of the engine is somewhat inconveniently placed. Summary: this was a replacement engine on a rear tine tiller. Easy install after a free 2nd day delivery.

Does the fuel tank, starter, or muffler stick out further than the crankcase cover and seal?

I am trying to install a blower housing for a trac vac that is larger than the engine and it is necessary for nothing to stick out further than the outputshaft seal. Thank you.
