    As I recall the 71 series has been around for a long time, is a 2-cycle engine, not as efficient as a 4-cycle, and needs a supercharger to be able to run.
    That is, unless there are upgrades I'm not aware of.

    the 71 series has been around awhile, have a 3-71 jimmy on a water pump. not sure how they have been modified or what fuel economy is like but the jimmy powered pump is a lot more fuel efficent than the deere pumps i used! like the early lister engines ,they had a good thing and "improved " it
