    Why do you think it's a fake?

    This is a good article as my gx 340 engine after checking seems to be a real one

    HONDA
    GX340
    337cm3
    this is a Honda GX340 337cc -- If it doesn't have this cast into the block where the characters are raised, NOT STAMPED - no matter what other stickers, name tags, paintwork or even the sellers assurances that it's a genuine Honda engine or generator IT ISN'T --- DO NOT BUY

    Its quite common for cheap Chinese generators to get a new sticker put on them and sold as Honda.

    Delta cobra etc real good brands use Honda engines trouble with eBay it's hard to tell from pics as the copy's are good
    I'm after a second washer and seen the one I put up in thread but couldn't tell from the pics if real and long way to travel if fake
