Compact combustion chamber, overhead cam design, and uniblock construction

GC series

A truly innovative combination of a compact combustion chamber, overhead cam configuration and uniblock construction significantly reduces fuel and oil consumption as compared to conventional side-valve engines.

Honda’s simple design has made the GC lighter and more compact than any engine in their class. Plus, simple construction has minimized the number of parts, making the engine more reliable and easier to operate.

Lifetime timing belt design

GC series

Honda’s GC engines use the world’s first small engine internal timing belt, designed to last the lifetime of the engine.

Small engine timing belts are usually external and are subject to wear caused by dirt. Honda’s internal timing belt runs in oil, eliminating the need for conventional drive gears.

This design:

  • Improves lubrication
  • Reduces the weight of the engine, and
  • Provides quieter operation.
Automatic mechanical decompression system

All engines

Honda’s automatic mechanical decompression system is designed to give you quicker, easier starts.

This system, which is connected to the camshaft, reduces compression by opening the exhaust valve slightly when the engine is being started. This reduces the amount of force needed to start the engine and improves starting performance.

The system disengages automatically after the engine starts to prevent any power loss during normal operation.
