has anyone did a repower on a 28 deluxe with a oredator 420 cc

I'd like to mount a bigger engine on my 921022 with 250 cc blower just looking for a easy and cheap route

2nd POST
sorry can't figure out how to continue this post. i'm looking at another option i think that each engine has it's own mounting baffle that mounts the engine to the frame, so i think if i take off the 1150 engine and baffle and mount the 1650 engine with its baffle it will line up; i think the cranks are same dia i should be able to use my pullie, tring to research it out any help will be great thanks

I tried doing this exact same thing last year. The biggest issue I ran into was finding a triple pulley that would fit on the output shaft of a replacement motor --OR-- finding a replacement motor that could utilized the original triple pulley off the DLX 28. The Ariens DLX 28 pulley is 1-piece and made for a specific output shaft diameter and length. There are so many variations of motors and shaft specifications that it was like finding a needle in a haystack. I bought and sold a couple of motors with no luck and finally stumbled across a 2 year old unused Toro 1128 on Craigslist for a great price, so I bought it and sold my Ariens. Big power on a 28" ROCKS. Good luck and if you succeed and make sure to do a write-up with the details to help out others.

I put a 420cc LCT Snow Engine on my 921017 (420 motor on a 24" bucket) so I'm sure you can mount a similar sized Predator on yours too. Had to re-drill some mounting holes but I was able to get it aligned. I used the stock traction drive pulley, but I ended ended up making my own new custom auger drive pulley in a larger diameter so that my throwing distance is ridiculously long now. Just do your homework up front...take many measurements and check things like the output shaft height compared to the original engine. You may have to change your belt guard and your belt sizes. Check belt finger fitment on the new motor as well. If you don't align things properly and you are not really mechanically inclined, you could be in for disappointment. But it's all do-able...just not a simple bolt-on operation.

Good point that Slinger brought up that I forgot to mention: With the new motors I tried, the crankshaft sat higher so you also need 3 longer belts. Then the pulleys hit the pulley guard and you would also need to modify the plastic guard to give more height. For me it just got to be too much work.

I dont understand why anyone would want to take a perfectly good newer snowblower and make it worse by replacing a decent engine with a really low-end junky engine..but to each their own I guess..
