i repowered an mtd with a blown powermore 7/8th shaft engine once, i ended up using a predator 212cc hemi engine from harbor freight and buying new pulleys from tractor supply. the engine was a drop in replacement and even the belts fit the new pulleys

that 7/8 shaft is a stick in the mud. If I have to go with a 3/4 or 1" shaft I prefer to stay with the same power level or go higher. If I get another Power More engine can I swap in the alternator.? Not sure if it would work with a LCT or Preditor (which I think is a Loncin engine). Since this machine is 28" wide I prefer to stay with the same size or larger engine. I see Troy Bilt also has a Powermore 272cc engine that they use on their track driven machine.

Thanks to all for the ideas. Keep them coming.
