Just be aware that there is no "new" direct replacement engine for the 60 & 70 if you want to use the deck! Reason being that the original has a stepped crankshaft to fit the deck clutch. ~~ grnspot

In non-running condition, I'd figure at least, spending between $75-$150 for a 60 or 70. As grnspot110 stated above, if the motor isn't rebuildable, then you are kind of screwed, because there isn't a replacement engine available. As for the 100, I'd guess around $125 tops. Good luck to you in finding what you want.

ok thanks , that sounds like a fair price range , i was thinking today and can a electric clutch be mounted on a standard b$s engine to bypass the orginal attachment clutch
