Predator engines?

I found a really good deal on an old Craftsman rear throw lawn mower. It is in really nice physical shape but the carburetor is toast and the lawn mower shop said that there isn't a carb kit much less a new carb available for that particular motor. I've seen ads for the Predator engines at Harbor Freight for around a $100 and was wondering if anyone has tried them. I know they are made "overseas" but a brand new Honda motor is around $350, installed.

I have heard mixed reviews on the HF engines, what is the model number info for the engine that is on the mower now, maybe someone on here has a suggestion for you. Have a good one. Geo

I've seen good and bad examples of Chinese knock-off engines. It's sort of like playing the lottery.
