Safety Warnings and Precautions
WARNING: When using this Gas Engine, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce
the risk of personal injury and damage to equipment.
Read all instructions before using this engine!
1.
Keep work area clean. Dark and cluttered areas invite injuries.
SKU 96500
For technical questions, please call 1-800-444-3353.
Page 2.
Observe work area conditions. Do not use the Engine in damp or wet locations. Do
not expose to rain. Keep work area well lit. Do not use powered tools in the presence
of flammable gases or liquids.
3.
Keep children away. Children must never be allowed in the work area. Do not let
them handle machines, tools, or extension cords. Children must never be allowed to
operate the Engine or be in the work area when the Engine is in operation.
4.
Store idle equipment. When not in use, the Engine must be stored in a dry location
to inhibit rust. Always lock it up and keep out of reach of children.
5.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry as they can be caught in moving
parts. Wear restrictive hair covering to contain long hair.
6.
Use the right tool for the job. Do not attempt to force the Engine to do the work of
a larger industrial tool. There are certain applications for which this equipment was
designed. It will do the job better and more safely at the rate for which it was intended.
Do not modify the Engine or use it for a purpose for which it was not intended.
7.
Use eye and ear protection. Always wear ANSI approved impact safety goggles and
ear plugs when using the Engine.
8.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Do not reach over
or across running machines.
9.
Maintain the Engine with care. Follow instructions for lubricating and changing accessories.
10.
Remove adjusting keys and wrenches. Check that all keys and adjusting wrenches
are removed from the Engine before starting.
11.
Avoid unintentional starting. Be sure the power switch and Fuel Valve are in the Off
position when not in use.
12.
Check for damaged parts. Check for alignment and binding of moving parts; any broken
parts or mounting fixtures; and any other condition that may affect proper operation. Any
part that is damaged should be properly repaired or replaced by a qualified technician.
Do not use the Gas Engine if the switch does not turn On and Off properly.
13.
Do not operate the Engine while tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol,
or medication. Read warning labels if taking prescription medicine to determine if
your judgment or reflexes are impaired while taking drugs. If there is any doubt, do
not operate the Engine.
14.
Maintenance. For your safety, service and maintenance should be performed regularly
by a qualified technician.
15.
People with pacemakers should consult their physician(s) before use. Electromagnetic fields in close proximity to heart pacemaker could cause pacemaker interference or pacemaker failure. Caution is necessary when near coil, spark plug cables, or
distributor of running engine. Engine should be off during distributor adjustment.

Page 16.
Fire Hazard! Do not fill Fuel tank when the engine is running. Do not operate if
gasoline has been spilled. Clean spilled gasoline before starting the Engine and dispose of cleaning materials in a ventilated metal container. Do not operate near a pilot
light or open flame.
17.
Operate the Engine in well ventilated areas only. Carbon Monoxide is produced during operation and is deadly in a closed environment. Early signs of Carbon Monoxide
poisoning resemble the flu, with headaches, dizziness, or nausea. If you have these
symptoms the engine may not be working properly, or it is being utilized with too little
ventilation in the work area. Get fresh air immediately.
18.
Avoid burns from the Engine. Certain parts of the Engine become very hot during
use. Do not touch the Engine until it cools down completely.
19.
Install this product on a proper surface. Locate on a flat, level, and solid surface
that is capable of supporting the weight of the Engine and the connected machinery.
20.
Do not operate the Engine with safety guards removed. While the Engine is running, do not attempt to reach around the safety guards for maintenance or any other
reason.
21.
If the Engine is installed indoors, exhaust fumes must be piped out of the building
using leak-free, heat-resistant piping. Pipes and silencer should not use any flammable materials, nor should they be installed near the same. Engine exhaust fumes
should be within legal limits.
22.
Engine fuel and fumes are flammable, and potentially explosive. Do not smoke,
or allow sparks, flames or other sources of ignition around the Engine, fuel tanks,
or batteries. Use proper fuel storage and handling procedures. Always have multiple
ABC class fire extinguishers nearby.
23.
Never store fuel or other flammable materials near the Engine.
24.
Keep hands, arms, long hair, loose clothing, and jewelry away from pulleys, belts,
and other moving parts. Be aware that when Engine parts are moving fast they cannot be seen clearly.
25.
The Engine can produce high noise levels. Prolonged exposure to noise levels
above 85 dBA is hazardous to hearing. Always wear ANSI-approved ear protection
when operating or working around the Engine when it is running.
Warning: The warnings, cautions, and instructions discussed in this instruction manual cannot cover all possible conditions and situations that may occur. It must be understood
by the operator that common sense and caution are factors which cannot be built into
this product, but must be supplied by the operator.

warranty does not apply to damage due directly or indirectly, to misuse, abuse, negligence or
accidents, repairs or alterations outside our facilities, criminal activity, improper installation,

vary from state to state.

Emission Control System Warranty
California and United States Emission Control Defects Warranty Statement
The California Air Resources Board (herein CARB), the United States Environmental Protection Agency (herein EPA), and Harbor Freight
Tools® (herein HFT) are pleased to explain the emission control system warranty on your 1995 and later Small Off-Road Engine (herein
engine). In California, the engine must be designed, built and equipped to meet the State’s stringent anti-smog standards. Elsewhere within
the United States, new off-road, spark-ignition engines certified for model year 1997 and later, must meet similar standards set forth by the
EPA. HFT must warrant the emission control system on your engine for the periods of time described below, provided there has been no
abuse, neglect or improper maintenance of your engine.
Your emission control system may include parts such as the carburetor or fuel-injection system, and the ignition system. Also included may
be hoses, belts, connectors and other emission-related assemblies.
Where a warrantable condition exists, HFT will repair your engine at no cost to you including diagnosis, parts and labor.
Manufacturer’s Warranty Coverage
The 1995 and later engines are warranted for two (2) years. If any emission-related part on your engine is defective, the part will be repaired
or replaced by HFT.
Harbor Freight Tools Emission Control Defects Warranty Coverage
Engines are warranted for a period of two (2) years relative to emission control parts defects, subject to the provisions set forth below. If any
emission related part on your engine is defective, the part will be repaired or replaced by HFT.
Owner’s Warranty Responsibilities
- As the engine owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required maintenance listed in your Owner’s Manual. HFT recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance on your engine, but HFT cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of receipts
or for your failure to ensure the performance of all scheduled maintenance.
- As the engine owner, you should, however, be aware that HFT may deny you warranty coverage if your engine or a part has failed due
to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance, or unapproved modifications.
- You are responsible for shipping your engine to a HFT warranty station as soon as a problem exists. Contact the HFT Customer Service
department at the number below to make shipping arrangements. The warranty repairs should be completed in a reasonable amount
of time, not to exceed 30 days.
If you have any questions regarding your warranty rights and responsibilities, you should contact the Harbor Freight Tools Customer Service
Department at 1-800-444-3353.
Harbor Freight Tools Emission Control Defects Warranty Provisions
1.Length of Coverage
HFT warrants to a first retail purchaser and each subsequent purchaser that the engine is free from defects in materials and workmanship
that cause the failure of warranted parts for a period of two (2) years after the date of delivery to the first retail purchaser.
2.No Charge Repair or Replacement
Repair or replacement of any warranted part will be performed at no charge to the owner if the work is performed through a warranty
station authorized by HFT. For emissions warranty service, contact the HFT Customer Service Department at 1-800-444-3353.
3.Consequential Damages Coverage
Coverage under this warranty shall also extend to the failure of any engine components caused by the failure of any warranted part
while it is still covered under this warranty.
4.Coverage Exclusions
Warranty claims shall be filed in accordance with the provisions of the HFT warranty policy explained in the box at the top of the previous page. HFT shall not be liable for any loss of use of the engine, for any alternative usage, for any damage to goods, loss of time, or
inconvenience. Warranty coverage shall also be excluded for any part which fails, malfunctions, or is damaged due to failure to follow
the maintenance and operating instructions set forth in the Owner’s Manual including, but not limited to:
(a) use of parts which are not authorized by HFT
(b) improper installation, adjustment or repair of the engine or of any warranted part unless performed by an authorized warranty
center

5.Service and Maintenance
Component parts which are not scheduled for replacement as required maintenance or are scheduled only for regular inspection to the
effect of “repair or replace as necessary” are warranted for the warranty period. Any warranted part which is scheduled for replacement
as required maintenance is warranted for the period of time up to the first scheduled replacement point for that part. Any replacement
part, provided it is equivalent in durability and performance, may be used in performance of maintenance or repairs. The owner is
responsible for commissioning a qualified technician/mechanic to perform all required maintenance, as outlined in the Inspection,
