826 to 524 Engine Swap

I'm considering taking the engine from my 826 (38150) and putting it on my 524 (31624). Is there anything I should be particularly concerned with in doing so?

The mounting holes on the 8 hp will have to be moved back some to fit the 5 hp.

It works well, but my 524 is in better mechanical shape and I like the controls on it better.

I thought the Tecumsehs from 4hp to 8hp had the same engine mount bolt pattern? Is this not correct? Or are you saying the entire engine has to move a bit on the blower frame?

Thanks.

Hmm. This is what happens when I think. thanks all.

edit: the reason I asked is because I am looking at used engine options for my Toro 521 and 421, both are Tec's.

I'm thinking you just got to check out the crank height on both engines and the bolt patterns, and placement on the frame, and the crank diameter so you can use the right pulley.....might be more work then it's worth. If the 5 hp engine is a Tecumseh...just bolt on a Predator.
