    Reading the description on that engine at the link it's hard to think of it as a clone, more like a cheap copy. Note all the text disclaimers about the oil mix and no warranty. The Mits TLE 43 is 2.2 HP (vs 1.6), has a 2 barrel intake with cylinder scavenging system and runs 50:1 premix. Caveat emptor....just sayin'.

    Staton is old school and I think he's scared of a warranty on those motors, he probably had a nightmare of 75% of those motors being returned. Considering the cost of real Mits 43 or a tanaka if I were looking for a 40cc+ smoker I'd take a chance for $99. I have faith he's done his homework and the motors would be ok. Notice he says use no gas with ethanol? Where would one buy gas with no ethanol? I haven't seen a gas pump with pure gas in decades.
