Subaru-Robin EA190V

Subaru-Robin EA190V engineThe Subaru-Robin EA190V is a 0.2 L (189 cc, 11.53 cu·in) natural aspirated single-cylinder four-stroke air-cooled internal combustion small gasoline engine with a vertical shaft, manufactured by the Industrial Products division of Subaru Corporation to 2017 for general-purpose applications.

The EA190V engine was produced until 2017 under the brand Subaru Industrial Power Products, which was previously referred to as Robin, Subaru-Robin and Wisconsin Robin. This engine used for lawn mowers and garden applications including pressure washers, walk behind string trimmers, aerators and lawn vacs.

The Subaru-Robin EA190V engine has a single cylinder, overhead camshaft (OHC) design, vertical shaft, and recoil starter. This engine used float type carburetor, capacitance discharge type ignition system, centrifugal flyweight type governor, mechanical splash type lubricating system and forced-air cooling system. The engine is fitted with a foam air cleaner (paper air cleaner was available as an option). The Subaru-Robin EA190V is equipped with 0.6 L (0.16 US. gal. 0.13 Imp. gal.) fuel tank.

The EA190V engine produced 5.6 PS (4.1 kW; 5.5 HP) at 3,600 rpm of maximum horsepower and 11.2 N·m (1.1 kg·m, 8.3 ft·lb) at 2,500 rpm of maximum torque.

Cylinder Block and Head

A 68.0 mm (2.68 in) cylinder bore and 52.0 mm (2.05 in) piston stroke give the EA190V engine a total of 189 cc of displacement. Compression ratio rating is 9.0:1. The Subaru-Robin EA190V used a cast-iron cylinder liner with heavy-duty piston rings, forged high-carbon steel crankshaft with ball bearing supporting system and hardened steel rocker arms with precision tappet adjusters. The piston is fitted with two compression rings and a single oil ring.
