Aside from being a vertical shaft engine this sounds like a good buy.

Looks like a single cylinder. Maybe ok for a lawn tractor

Ya great deal if you need one. Amazon List price is $529.49.
Bad thing is the 17.5hp intek is the worst of the Intek series engines for head gasket failure. I've replaced a couple dozen head gaskets on them. Best Intek single was the 14.5 and 15hp.
The 17.5 is by far the worst followed by the 19hp and 21hp intek singles.
I would still snatch up all of them if I had the money.That's super cheap for a New engine.

I'd buy one but nothing I have uses a vertical shaft engine except my old push mower with 3.5hp briggs.
