I was given a Ranch King (MTD) 14.5 / 38 without a motor. Now this LT is in good shape. The PO said it was running rough and he just opened it all the way and it " Just Blew". He took the motor off and got rid of it after he found it was going to be a hassel to get a short block for it. I have everything except the motor and bottom pulleys. I wanted to put manula start B&S 8hp vertical in that I have but have decided that I am going to try to find a good used original type motor for it. I don't need it but I would like to find a motor and pulleys so I could get it back running and then I would donate it to our local community sharing or the church to give to someone who truly needs it.
Anyone know what engine might have been on it? I surmise it was a Briggs but he wasn't sure.(?) Thanks for any help you may be able to give me. Camera is down right now but will be able to get pics later today. Roger.
