I found a Troy Bilt Horse for sale a few days ago that has no engine, what is there, looks in real good shape. I have a couple of engines here that would be good candidates to go on there.
The seller does not have the old engine, but does have all the belts pullies and such needed to put another engine on there. It is a "newer" model, as those tillers go, Im thinking mid '90s by the stickers.
I think the asking price for what's left is a bit high but it was advertised as "OBO"
I paid less for my current Horse that was a runner when I got it --- albeit a tired, smoking one-- that I also wound up re powering
I dont need 2 of them but I am thinking I can pop an engine on this other one and then flip either taht one or my current one come spring...
I do have an engine sitting here that would go good on a Horse tiller just gotta get out to the shed at my parents cottage and check crank diameter.... so I wont have to go buy an engine for it
