Well I have found a Continental Motor for my 5756 Tractor, it originally had an AU7 on it from the factory but I am going to install an AU8 instead. The AU7 would have been either 1.6 or 1.8 HP and the AU8 is 2.5 HP. Its close or about as close as I can get.

I am needing a few parts for it. The plastic Governor cover, spring and linkage for carb, but I can make the linkage. Points or something that will work. It is very rusty, (came from Pennsylvania) but it does have compression.

What does my fair state have to do with rust? LOL

Good for you that you found an engine.

I have a way to fix the broken Governor cover. I can screw a piece of metal to the broken area and the clip should hold it down then.

Congrats on finding the correct motor. It looks very nice. I have a 5756 that has been repowered. I have the hood and the correct fuel tank though. I'll certainly be following your progress. I've enjoyed your videos!
