Honda GX31

I now have a few tools in my garage powered by the Honda GX31. I'm dying to know what they did inside the engine to handle the oil. Anyone know the inner workings of this engine?

pilot, i tried to find the animation but failed. the engine uses a pressurized oil system . described to me by honda reps as a fogger that allows 360 degree position but not at the level of a 2 stroke. we have a couple in rental (weedeaters). great low end torque an just a small problem with the carb isolator which was handled by honda with no questions asked. gotta say honda is one heck of a company to work with. biggest problem we had was customers thinking it was a two stroke because of the weight and size. the put mixed gas in it AND checked the oil!

v8driver: I did not know Briggs had a mico 4-stroke. What products is it used in?

Trimmers, http://www.briggsandstratton.com/dis...sp?docid=98797 , its lower hp, but should be cheaper being a side valve, though they only have come out with two types, one clutched, might make more powerful, dunno.
