6.5 HP Greyhound engine at harbor freight

I notice Harbor Freight has their 6.5 HP engine on sale for $90.00 with a limit of 4 per customer. That sounds like a real deal. Is there a defect in these engines and Harbor freight trying to dump them on the market? I want to buy one. I have a poulan pro and a troy bilt horse, I think this engine will fit both tillers. Both tillers run great but I have never seen an engine go that cheap, nor can I rebuild ont that cheap, especialy the Tecumseh.

What do you guys think about the cheap price on the Greyhound?

not sure as what to say, have read both good and bad. My thought is yes they will work but you may have to be a good mechanic.

a guy I work with will not go near them, his dad owns a rental store and they do honda or industrial brigs and they perfer the honda. I figure they must know what they are doing. The price is attractive, but I am not a good small engine mechanic. so i stick with industria briggs or the hondas.
