How are those engines to put in stuff?  Base have about same mount holes?   Wiring an issue?  Many come with start and use controls right on engine. Do you just leave them on or connect the dash controls?  Shaft right height and diameter?  Been thinking of trying one on my Horse, but not sure, as the pto probly won't be able to be used then.  AND, is the gas tank still mounted on the engine?

I drilled new mounting holes to line the drive pulley up right. No wiring if you don't want to, just +/- battery cables. It has its own charge circuit, I don't know that it would charge enough to use a lot of lights but it keeps my battery charged for starting just fine. Mine has the key start but I haven't hooked it up to the dash as I can reach it easy. I plan to but haven't yet. The choke is by the gas line shut off so I haven't hooked it up to the dash yet either. It could be easy enough though. The shaft is the right height for me and it is 1". So far im pleased with the engine, I have duck hunt'n buddies who use these engines mercilessly on their mud boats who swear by them.

Pretty clean looking tractor. Glad you like the repower.
