Question engines etc.

I was wondering if any of you have the Briggs and Stratton 14.5 snow engines on your
snow mules and what you have thought of them so far?????

I have one on my Troy-Bilt 2410 (re-power)

Plenty of power and starts easily.

Not the best quality in terms of engine internals, but it gets the job done. Mine tends to burn more oil than the older engines and the china branded engines that I have.

I run several 1450s and they purr along just fine. There is a smell of oil burning on start up, so I keep an eye on the oil level. This seems to be common with all the B&S engines I'm running.
