was wondering what people on here think of this kinda rare 2 stroke mower engine?
I have a chance to nab one (supposedly running) but don't really know a thing about them other than they are pretty stout. The donor deck will likely be my 10247 duraforce stamped steel, non SP.
If this engine is not worth the time, I will likely pursue a briggs engine of some sort on that deck.

Call me crazy, but I dont really like the duraforce engine that much, I find it extremely noisy, sporadic, (mine does need the main jet drilled as it hunts/surges terribly.) and a bit overkill on the power end (Im nuts, I know...). Im used to my butter smooth d series

I had a Toro 21 inch steel deck pusher for awhile. It had a Tecumseh 2 stroke. Ran great until the coil failed.

Are coils or parts for that engine easy to find still?
Wondering if snapping up that engine is even worth it...
