Anybody have a neighbor who is selling a good used riding mower at a decent price? Or a good mower shop to do an egngine transplant for a lawn mower? Trying to avoid buying a new one if at all possible.
I have a push mower for back up, but I have been thinking about doing a motor transplant on the old Sentinel.Dre, You could try Harbor Freight and if you find the right motor, I'll help you swap it out. In the meantime, if the grass is really getting high, I could bring my snapper over and cut it for you. Your son AIN'T gettin on my mower! :joke: John
I'll post the model number just in case, when I get a minute to get out there.That's an expensive engine unless you can find one used. New they go for around 350 to 400 bucks. That's probably still going to be cheaper than buying a whole lawnmower though.
Get the model number off the engine plate and post it and we can all look around to see how cheap we can get one for. In the end, you'd probably be better off buying the new motor and putting it in yourself than buying something else. At least then you'll know you have a brand new engine.
I'll that now since i'm about to take my lunch breakYou could try Lost mountain Outdoor Power Equipment on New Macland Rd. They usually have some used riding mowers out front. They also do good work. I have used them several times.
In the meantime if you need to borrow a mower, you can use my push mower. I can bring it over in my truck.
Not with a massive hole in the side of the block housing.as far as an engine swap, you could likely just replace the damaged parts and do a rebuild. I've done 3 so far.. they're pretty simple.. I'm sure between me and the other guys around, we could get it going for ya. I've got some garage space too.
