I have a engine donor. I don't know the full story of why this lawn tractor got pulled out of service, but I know it sat in the weeds for several years now. But the price was good, Free!
here is the donor:
It has a 16.5 hp Tecumseh. Under the shroud was full of junk, including a bumble bee nest. It looks like a little water may have made it's way to the carb, but not sure how much. Last night I got the hood and grill off the tractor and got all the shrouds off the motor. Next I need to give the motor a good bath and get the carb clean. The gas tank was bone dry.
This donor didn't have a deck, but I have a slightly used 46" deck off a different lawn mower available.
