If it's a single shaft yeah, dual shaft be careful, it can be done but a few backflips to make it work

It says the engine runs great..if that is true, why would you want to pay more to put a worse engine on it?

I want to pay less. I am trying to find out if anyone recognizes it and can clearly say it is a single shaft. Do you know? If so, please answer.

just wondering...if the 5Hp on it runs great, why would you repower it to gain only 1.5 HP ? doesn't seem like a worthwhile effort, unless the OEM engine was shot.

Garage
Find out the model number and just look it up on one of the online parts web sites to see if it's single or dual shaft.

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
