Subject: Putting a horizontal shaft engine in my mower Mon Jun 03, 2013 11:22 pm
Hi guys I'm kinda stuck I have mocked up putting a horizontal shaft engine in a lawn mower I got for free because the motor blew up and I had this one laying around. I remember seeing it be done on you tube and the guy had an adapter that took it from horizontal to vertical so the belt would fit on the stock tranny. Does anyone know where I can find that part?

more than like you will have to buy it, its a right angle gear box it would be easier and probally cheaper to find a vertical shaft engine than to find a ragb

If you scout around, you might be able to source an RAGB on the cheap. I got two seriously beefy units from Bolens garden tractor attachments. One from a cutting deck, the other from a snowblower. They have iron cases, steel gears, are close to 1:1 (1.2:1 IIRC) and can definitely tolerate the abuse.
