How to find your Honda make, model and serial number:
Model and Serial Number Locations for your Honda engine have  a label on the engine like the picture to your left for reference.

FINDING THE ENGINE MODEL to find the model number:
look for a model number sticker on the engine.
All Honda engines model numbers start with the letter "G," such as "G100", "GX610", or "GXV160." This is the base Honda engine model.  The engine model and serial number should be adequate for most of your needs. 

The engine serial number is stamped into the side of the engine.  All Honda engine serial numbers have a 4 or 5 letter prefix followed by a 7 digit number.

The engine type code is stamped into the side of the engine, usually close to the serial number.  Engine type codes may be up to 4 characters.  If a code is less than 4 characters, you may see asterisks as placeholders (ex: an engine stamped with QX** is a QX type engine.)
