Question about Honda 8 HP Engine
Looking at a brown bed edger and the compression is 90 psi is this something that i should worry about. it has the 8hp honda motor.
The Honda 8HP motor will work OK with 90 psi compression but it's on the lower end of good. Most likely it will need new piston rings and possibly the cylinder resurfaced in the near future. Low compression could also be caused by valves not seating completely either from wear or carbon buildup. Depending on what you are looking to spend it may be worth your while to remove or have removed the head to inspect the valves and cylinder wall.

It will depend on the pump that you have but the most common versions will be the 13HP PC4-35324 which is a direct drive unit or a PG4-35324 which is a belt drive unit. In both cases the machine would be 4GPM at 3500PSI.
