Looking for a new engine and came to find out there is 8 different ones to choose from.
QA2, QAR2, QAE2, QXC9, LX2, PA2, RA2 and HA2. I called up and the person was not to sure the meaning or difference of them. engines.honda.com was a little help but I am still a little lost. Anyone here have a 8hp Honda with one of these numbers that can tell me what they stand for. I am looking to use one of these for a 4' or 5' dredge with a Keene water pump (P280B).

The guy told me the RS was for recoil start.

Funny thing is that Honda told me the only difference in the QA2 model and the RS model on the 6.5 hp engine was the RPM. QA2 2500 RS 3600. Just would like to see if anyone out there knows what these codes mean or were I can find out, thanks
