Replace an HMSK80 with an HMSK100?

These past couple of noreasters with heavy wet snow have got me thinking that I either need to get a new(er) machine or perhaps upgrade the engine. Yes, I know all about repowering with a Predator, and I know there are work-arounds for when you have a dual shaft HMSK engine. However, I'm thinking that if I could find a decent HMSK100 PTO long block, it would be a pretty easy upgrade. I have also seen new HMSK100 short blocks on Ebay for pretty short money. However, they are all single shaft, but I thought I saw a thread showing how the PTO shaft can be retrofitted using the same cover. Is this true?

Any thoughts/insight will be appreciated.

Big thing would be if both covers were the same dimensions with same bolt pattern. If they matched then likely would work, if not then the won't.

8-10 side covers are the same, and you can swap the 8hp cam and cover to the 10hp engine. However, MTD and Similar use a different Style Crank.

Therefore, if I understand you correctly, the shaft length/diameter is different?
