Looks like a predator 420 is in your future.

Since the predator 420 does not have 120v ac electric start i found another engine that is 420cc with AC electric start. For the shaft size I can get an adapter onpy if i meed to upsize? You can't get an adapter to downsize I assume? So i just need to make sure the bolt pattern matches so the alignment of pullies stays the same? Also this new engine does not have onboard throttle control, instead it has a remote throttle cable can I just buy a throttle control and mount it anywhere?

This is half the cost of a new 357.

But look at the details:

Quote:
MTD Cub Cadet 483-SUC 357CC (13HP) Snow Blower Engine. Fits Cub Cadet Snow Blower models of 2X and 3X. This engine has minimal wear as it was warrantied after 2 Hours. Engine had a sheered flywheel key and has been replaced and tested. Like new condition and is fully functional. See pictures for wear.
7/8" diameter for crankshaft. 2 1/4" from end of crank to bevel of crank. 4 3/4" from base of engine to bottom of crank.
All whole engines that are sold may need to have carburetor service and/or parts due to fuel being drained from engine for shipping. Customer assumes all costs if carburetor needs service or parts - we will not pay for or reimburse customer for the maintenance issues. Sold as is, no warranty or returns - all engines tested and verified working.

Sooo - we tested it and it ran, but by the time you get it, it might be missing parts that make it run and if that happens it's your problem.

No thanks, I'll pass.

No worries....was nice to find a 357cc....



They did not say it might be missing parts they are saying it may need to have carburetor service and/or parts due to fuel being drained from engine for shipping.



I believe if any parts they mean are if carb needs a tune up.......Nothing will be missing. That is a disclaimer.... Probably better to be safe.







Yeah go for a predator....will treat you well!!!
