Default 5 hp briggs engine ,tiller with reverse.

Had someone drop this off today with a big hole in the block. Ask me to buy a replacement engine and change it.

B&S 5 HP: 135292 025401

I figured it would not be a problem until I realized it has reverse via the cam. And when I started searching on the web for a replacement.

I have been having trouble lately with finding things I need. Or maybe its what I am working on.lol
I can't find a replacement engine.
Anyone have one?? Or know where I can get one.? A bigger engine that mounts up would work too.

I may have to eliminate reverse on this tiller.(gives me many more options)

I doubt you will find a replacement, I am pretty sure they were discontinued probably quite awhile ago. I need three of them right now myself. MIGHT want to think about modifying a std. block and using the camshaft from the original IF it is OK.

Snowblowers and tillers that's all I can think of that use Cam pulley. you'll need a good donor and swap the case end from the blown engine or a block and rebuild what's there, providing it's all good.. Beyond that, reject the work or inform them reverse won't work after re-power.

Well. hmm?

I can't get a replacement ,,that's a sure thing. But I do have ,almost,the same engine mounted on another tiller. It has no reverse cam drive.

I thinking I can change the cover and cam ,,and it will work. Am I correct???


I need to figure out if the cam is good in this engine,,or ,,is the cam available for parts,,,new???? Has anyone looked for that??


If I go a different way,,and eliminate reverse. Is there any engines available in a bigger size??? maybe a 8hp or so??? Will just about any horizontal shaft engine work???

Id toss a 6.5 clone on it...will bolt up to the frame fine, measure from the crank, to the mounting surface on the new engine and the old engine...space the new engine up as required, briggs, hondas, clones, tecumsehs...generally all had lower crank centerlines than their Flathead predecessors.

Well if that works,,and I believe what you say,,and it will.

I could do that and sacrifice my engine for this tiller. And I could figure in the cost to buy me a replacement engine for my tiller. I'm thinking I can pick one up for $100-$150, Seems someone just has a post on here about it,,the same engine. And HF had one for $99. I went back to look and I can't find that post.

I had the $100 engine coupon in my Email but accidentally deleted it ( whole super coupon flyer ). It was valid thru this month.. you can find the coupons on Ebay, otherwise the super coupon will still be on the Harbor Freight website if you can find it, But I havn't been able to find it, only an expired coupon for $109 which I found in my browser history.

Is this engine worth having?? And how does it compare to a 5 hp as far as power? 212 cc???

http://www.harborfreight.com/predato...nia-68120.html

I now have permission from the owner of this tiller to eliminate reverse. So my options just got much bigger for a replacement . I think I want something bigger.

I am now looking for a engine that will NOT (have to)provide reverse for this tiller. And I would like to use a bigger engine. I want a new engine also. Do you know of a place that I can buy what you suggest???

Does harbor freight stock these?? I would rather not have to pay for shipping. But will if no choice.

I don't buy many "new" engines. lol And not sure what one looks like.

The 196-200cc Honda clones were rated at 6.5 HP, the 212cc are sometimes rated as high as 7hp, but Harbor Freight gives no rating.. I have 2 of these 212cc Predators and for the $100 they cost, there great. I would not buy 1 at full $179 price tho. Even a genuine Honda GX200 would do great and still make a very affordable repower.
