:i dunno: feel a bit of a dill but cant work it out
i have just received a 25 inch ride on mower which will be great for small yards - i am having trouble getting the 2 stroke engine going and am thinking of replacing it - Got the mower at the right price so i can spent a couple of dollars on it :laughing: - the motor is a 140cc victa 2 stroke and i converted it to 4.5 - 5 hp is this right
thanks in advance terry :)

I asume you want to fit a verticle shaft engine,Value for money ,Tecumseh have a 6hp engine with a cast iron flywheel and oil pump specificly designed for small ride ons,cast iron bore etc.These are a great work horse engines and built for the job.

Also most shops have an Allied [Tecumseh ]account and parts are priced pretty well.Might be worth checking out.
Cheers :)
