How to wire a XP16HPE:

There are 5 wires coming from the key switch.

Brown Wire
Connects to a brown wire on the left side of the motor (starter motor towards you) coming from near the recoil assembly.

Washer Wire
Connects to the "hot" post on the solenoid. The same post the positive batterly cable connects to.

Booted Wire
Connects to the spade connection on the solenoid. Between and above the posts.

Female Wire
If there is a metal box on the engine block near the starter with two wires coming off of it, one of them connected to the low oil sensor coming out of the engine.
  • Connect the free male wire to the female from the switch.

If there is not a wire connect to the low oil sensor wire and there is no small metal box near the starter on the engine block.
  • Connect the male wire from the low oil sensor to the female from the switch.

Male Wire
Connect the male wire from the switch to the female wire coming from under the fuel tank. It starts at the ignition coil and comes under the tank. It is often hidden behind the starter motor.

I purchased one of these to replace the FE290 Kawasiki in my 1996 Club Car two years ago. This engine bolted in to the existing engine mount with no modifiction and has been trouble free since the install, always starts right off in cold weather and has great torque. I would recomend to anyone as a replacement engine for the Club Car engine.

Longtail outboard engine

I use my Duromax on mud-skipper a longtail kit, pushing a 26' long Chinese style raft. It does about 12mph.
I had a problem with the ignition switch my fault I think, but they replaced it free of charge.

Great engine for this big boat.

DuroMax 16 Hp., 1'' Shaft, Recoil/Electric Start Engine

Used this engine to replace an 18HP engine that was on a large wood splintter that had worn out after 30 years of use. I was impressed with how well this engine handles the load. It looks like a Honda engine. How don't know how you could do any better for the price. Max Tools did a super job shipping it out.

Seems well-made

This engine appears to be well-made, sturdy. Just got it installed and running, so not much experience with durability, but the finish and construction appears to be much better than typical Chinese products (could it be the same mfg. equipment used by Honda?). Hope the inside is as well-made as the outside. If so, I will be very satisfied.
