Kid on YT put a 3HP push mower motor on his MTD - really all's youd need to do is find a pulley with the proper size hole for the crank - or get and adapter from TSC - those are weld in tho.


To make it work youd have to look for local welder and have them weld it up.


I have a 5 and a 6HP horizontal shaft motors ( one is off a pressure washer) , i want to put one on my MTD wizard - ill have to cut a hole in the chassis for a chain tho to a straight rear axle.

If the engines are both verticle shaft it will bolt on easy. As for pulleys you dont have to buy pulleys with the weldable centers. I dont have a welder either and i manage to find pulleys at my local farm store.

I put a push mower engine on my kids first fast mower, a little husky. Put a 5 speed tranny in it, and 6hp tecumseh. it would do about 18 mph. Had plenty of power.
