Hi guys. I have a HUGE problem with my Bolens QT16. the engine is blwon...
I have to buy a new engine. What sholud i do???

The prices in Norway/Sweden is NOTHING like the prices in the US. Example:

Honda GX twin 20hp: 3500 USD
Briggs twin 18 hp: 2500 USD

Honda GX 13hp (singel cylinder): 1200 USD
Loncin 15hp (singel cylinder): 600 USD
Kipor 10hp diesel (singel cylinder) 600 USD

Will a singel cylinder work in my Bolens QT16? Will ti handle snowplowing heavy and wet snow? I only use it at winter for snowplowing....

I think its insane to use 2500 usd on the engine :(

I hope you can help med here, would the Hodnda GX390 / Loncin 15Hp singel cylinder work?

And how to I connect the drive shaft? the engine in my tractor is mounted in the "wrong diretion"? Can i somehow connect the drive shaft at the recoil starter?

but what about the drive shaft connection? I remove the recoil cover on this: will the drive shaft bolt on? I want an electric starter so i dont need the recoil cover...
Well the shipping to Norway is pretty expensive.... So i think i have to go with a motor bought in Norway or Sweden. Iam playing with the thought of converting my QT to a walk behind tractor. But JUST playing with the thought.
Does anyone know the size on the bolts i need to block the ones i have a cirkel on the picture? I need to remove the lift cylinder ang then i need to block these, dont i?

Ok, so no one knows :)

Before i begin my breakdown og the QT, can someone tell me how the driveshaft is connected to the Sundstrand? i have to take the rear end off, how do I remove the drive shaft? Is it boltet on? If someone has a picture on how its removed i would be VERY happy... I will be posting pictures when my project is up and running....
Thanks for all the help guys. It doesnt sy anything about the size int the parts manual...

Guess iwill figure it out somehow :)

Next question:

My PTO i run by two belts to day, after my mod it will not be space for two belts, will one belt be enough? or should i go for chains and sprocket? My PTO will only be used with snowblower (1 stage, 42")
