Smart People of the Internet, your thoughts on an Engine Swap ST824?

**** EDIT*** Moved to Repower Forum... because, that is really where this post belongs... always learning...



I blew the rod in my engine during the storm yesterday... I heard the ping ping and knew I should have stopped right then and there but said to myself, just one more pass and I am done... well.... now, I am done... as the rod broke through the sidewall of the engine....


I have an Ariens 924050 028860 which has engine HM80 155128F

I found a used 924082 048855 which has engine HMSK80 155526S with a busted Auger/Gearcase


It looks like I can't just swap the 24" blower units, but I may be able to swap the engines, where the engine sheave is the same size.......


When it comes to engines, I know just enough to be dangerous, curious to learn if this is as simple as it sounds inside my head....

I just repowered a ST824 witha Predator 212 and was very impressed with how it came out. 100$ for a brand new engine. I did need to buy a 12$ 3/4 to 1" adapter sleeve. I did this for a co-worker so i havent yet had a chance to get any feed back on snow performance, but it was an easy swap and those motors runs so **** smooth.

Shaft size is the probably the biggest thing you have to deal with I think (if different) between those 2 engines. usually I just buy new pulleys
