What is the easiest, most straight forward way to re-power my Ride Master so I can drive it around, just until I get a chance to re-build the Wisconsin?  Looking something in the "cheap" Chinese  engines.

Probably Harbor Freight.  Have heard a lot of good things about their engines.  Bad side is getting parts in case ?

That what I was thinking. Was just wondering if anyone else had done it and how big a PITA it is going to be

I would think it would be just as easy to rebuild your motor than to rig a replacement. Even finding a direct replacement Wisconsin isn't that difficult, just my two cents.
