The Honda 2HP 4 stroke I had was air cooled. As mentioned above I ran it very hard for 20 years with no problems. To the best of my knowledge the person I sold it to has had no problems. Over the years I have had Honda cars, motorcycles, generator, and snow blower and am totally satisfied with all of them.
