There is little debate that the Honda engines have a great reputation. As with most "alternative" engines the weak link is usually the gearbox, then the cooling system. But typically if there is a failure the "auto" engine usually takes the blame.
The project has been a blast so far. No project like this, including mine, has not had some setbacks, but right now, I am very happy and look forward to getting it flying.
Anyway, thanks for the post.
