So I attempted to swap motors on the b296 with an 8 26 cenex with an 8hp it was a close match but the shaft size is where I got stopped. The 8hp has too long and big a pulley so now my question is does anyone have a 6hp Briggs that would work I can pay to have it shipped just need a motor that will work now any help would be greatly appreciated guys.

The shaft isn't to big because of one "8hp"
In every size engine they made there were màny diameter and length configurations depending on the mower manufacturers needs. I am sure they made a crank for the 8hp that would work.
Otherwise you could pull that one and have it machined to work or find a pulley with the right dimensions.

It is too big the bolts on the ends are different sizes I'd have to have it machined but I'd prolly be more spendy then just finding a motor that'd match up.also the 8a shaft is much longef and would have to be cut down

Put the crank from the 6hp in the 8hp if needed. You'll end up with a 7hp cause of a shorter stroke though. 6-7-8hp all use the same block

Oh you chucked it? Im sure you could of sold the motor for parts. Did the motor have a generator / starter?

No it was junk we saved a few parts but it was kind of a hunky motor anyway. I got a few lines in the water for a new one so well see what pops up
