Will one of Scott's military engines he has for sale fit in it?
I already have one of those, but it was giving me issues (carb & fuel pump) continuously, so I took it off my backhoe & replaced it with..........the 18hp engine I "said" would go onto this 1855. Till a while ago I had forgotten I'd already used it. So this engine that came with the Snapper will likely be gone through & go back on. I do have a BF Onan I could put on it just to test things. It would just need a carb/points cleaning and be ready to go.
Sitting in Walmart parking lot in Corydon, IN.
Ready to go into my shop.
Turns out the rear brake was just stuck. She rolls fine now. The input on the Eaton has wiggle to it, so might need a new bearing there. But all in all, she'll make a great tractor once I get the time and energy to get into it.
Likely do no more tinkering today. I stopped and went to mowing the yard when I saw it was sprinkling. Got most done.
