I found a 14hp Tecumseh from a G14 that supposedly runs well, comes with all the electrical. Since I love my 1556 and now have two of them, would this motor be a good backup should one of them need it? The G14 is a 6 speed, the 1556 is Hydrostatic, but I don't think that should matter. They are both OHV motors, and I believe it should be a direct swap shall I need to. Anyone know of anything that would not let this happen?

 

Thanks

Not a thing. The 1556 is not really much difference than the 1456/1656 or H14/H16, the G14s were just a geared version

I had a 1556 parts tractor that I borrowed the engine shroud (piece that mounts to engine and dash sides and covers exhaust pipe) to put on a g14 to replaceone that the previous owner had hacked up for some reason.  I had to lengthen the slot for the breather tube and enlarge the opening around the oil dipstick.  I think what your trying to do should work as a spare.

I figured as much, now we gotta see if the guy is going to get back in touch with me. Part of dealing with Craigslist I guess...
