Hello all. So I have been looking for a side shaft engine to build a generator. I ran across these to old mowers in a man's yard. I was surprised they had horizontal engines. Never knew lawn mowers used these. I started researching them on the net and came upon this forum. One mower is beyond repair and I was going to rebuild the engine for my generator. I was going to part out the 88 Craftsman II unit but after reading a bunch of posts here I may be getting addicted. I am from North Georgia by the way.
