I need a replacement engine for my toro 56145 8-32 rider. It can be 8-12.5hp as long as the the bolt pattern is the same, my existing 8hp stacked pulley will fit on the replacement motor, or the replacement motor has the same stacked pulley.
If anyone has done this, let me know what engine was used. I've been checking craigslist for a used Toro 8-32 or 11-32 that has a good engine and is priced fairly, but have not found one yet. Curious what other engines could be used though.
I tried to replace the original 8hp 191707-2132 with a 11hp from an old Murray tractor that had a 252707-0132 but this model 11hp has a different diameter shaft(the end where the pulley goes has a smaller diameter) than the original 8hp and because the 11hp came from a tractor, the stacked pulley from the tractor is a different length so I can't use it on the rider.
