I have three GMS engines, each one has run reliably and well since I have had them, one of my 46s is nearly six years old, and has seen its share of crashes, the muffler on it is held on with a clamp and liquid metal, still it runs like a clock, the other has seen less action but is still reliable and an easy starter, the 76 is a real work horse, powerful and reliable, the only complaint I have with any of them is that they refuse to quit when you land, I have to pinch the fuel supply to stop them.
On the other hand my brand new 61FX OS has been an absolute pig to tune, rattles loudly in the mid range, and has been a real problem by flaming out, I really wouldn't buy another.
Cheap the GMS may be, but I personally have found them to be a superb engine .
The only "stupid question" is the one you don't ask.

Re: GMS engines

I put a GMS 25 on a Corospit. My brother Bryan broke it in for me and it now runs really well.
I would recommend dismantling it to inspect and clean it out. I found some debris in the case.
Locktite the heck out of it! Beware of the muffler rattling loose.

Overall decent running and pulls the Corospit along fairly quickly!
