I need a replacement for my existing engine. Can you confirm if this is a like for like replacement of: GX240 QA2X GC04-3648633 What's the difference between 2QA2 and QA2X? I need to mount this and be sure the shaft height, length, etc. are in the correct geometry as the existing engine.

Answer
The 2QA2 would be your direct replacement. I believe you are confusing the "X" with an asterisk (*). Honda uses these as place holders and they have no meaning what so ever in that they are exactly what they are supposed to be, a place holder. The "2" in front of the QA2 is just an internal update made by Honda, so the GX240UT2QA2 would be your direct replacement. It should be a one for one swap.
