I have the powermax 16 hp and I think it is a good motor. The clonies pretty much bolt right in maybe have to modify mounting hole a little. The 16 hp is 420cc It has plenty of pwer for what I do with it.

I think the fe350 and 400 are the opposite rotation from the 290...

Welcome Harleyranger,
I just bought the 16hp Powermax engine and I'm installing it in a 2003 ezgo txt.
It is not a drop in and you're burning tires in a few minutes. It takes some planning and learning and modifying. At least this has been my experience with the ezgo. It may be better with other manufactured carts.
There are a few threads here on the "Clone" engines. Start reading, because the info here is priceless.
Good Ventures,
Bud

Oh, a CJ5... I have many great memories of blazing off road in a CJ5 that belonged to a very good friend.... many years ago.
I will be posting more in another thread about the "clone", as I progress.
Good Luck!~
Bud
