I've always had a warm spot for 2 strokes, the old ones,with carburetors and running pre-mix. And I fought against the dominance of Honda and other foreign companies longer than most, you know, "Rather paddle my Johnson than drive a rice burner". Anyway, couple years ago when I needed new engine for the dink I started shopping and ran into this little catch 22, needless to say I'm now the proud owner of a Honda 4 stroke 2 HP. Recently I've seen some new really small (1.5 to 3 hp) from American Companies, but at that time Honda was the only one with an engine lighter than a 4 HP available to us here. Oh well, at least I'm still drivin' a GMC.
