Offering up a good condition 4 hp, L head Tecumseh vertical shaft lawnmower engine with 2.75" long, 1" diameter shaft in trade for EITHER a good condition mulch plate (plug, cover) & mulching blade for a 21" Lawn Boy 2 stroke 7268 model lawnmower OR a working or not 5hp Briggs & Stratton horizontal shaft engine.
Prepped the Tecumseh for a friend of a friend's mower, the engine of which had a bent shaft & cracked crank cover. Unfortunately, it was only after cleaning the Tec's block & blower housing, changing the oil, cleaning the carb, etc that I discovered that I was out of 1" blade adapters. Since it was a rush job (guy was heading home up north that day), I had to sacrifice my spare, prepped 6hp Tec 7/8" shaft engine :(
Engine came off a 21" front self propelled MTD mower that I acquired for its tranny & front wheels for a neighbour's machine, so this engine can, of course, be used with a 1" adapter that has a built in pulley.
Everything on the Tec is fine (incl coil, fuel tank, rewind, etc), though I am not including the carb, air cleaner assy, fuel cap, or plug.
The Briggs need not be running or pretty, but the block must be good, the piston unseized, with good valves (& guides) THAT have never been filed, a good static ignition coil, and a decent looking, undamaged blower housing.
Will require several photos of the Lawnboy parts or the engine, please.
Sorry, not interested in anything else.
