Well here is my GCV160 engine mounted on a Lawnboy deck that had a dead Tecumseh on it. It mounted right up and I covered it in Honda Firecracker Red. Very quiet and smooth set-up....on to pics.
Jason the engine came from a Honda Mower. I think it was a later model. I just got the engine and blades/bolts.What application did the Honda come from? How close in dimension was the pulley for the belt? The Honda on my 10330 came from a Craftsman mower, and the belt was a touch narrower on the Craftsman. So the L-B belt rides a bit higher in the sheave than it's really "supposed to", but it works okay nonetheless.
Everything lined up perfectly on shaft length and the motor mount bolts lined up as well. The deck was from a V series so it was a one speed self propel.Great job! I've been looking at taking my 30 year old Honda from an HRA214 and putting it on a 30+ year old "Chief" whose engine is impossible to start. Honda starts and runs fine but blade transmission is failing badly. How easy was the swap from the standpoint of shaft and mounting holes?
how much would you want for it?Everything lined up perfectly on shaft length and the motor mount bolts lined up as well. The deck was from a V series so it was a one speed self propel.
Thanks everyone. I think I am going to sell it to make room in the garage. Any takers locally (to pittsburgh/ohio/wv) PM me !
