Guy gave me a Horse Troy Built. Engine, tires shot.
Anybody know what engine I can get to replace it? It bolts to both the bottom, & the side where the shaft comes out.

I bought a 10hp B&S engine from the smallengine warehouse for about $450.00. You need to get a replacement engine for a Troy Bilt tiller so it has the hole pattern and the 3/4 " shaft. Smallenginewarehouse has an 11hp B&S engine for the Troy Bilt Horse model tiller. Cost is $450.00 plus shipping. That's the same engine they used on their Big Red tillers. Here's their part number on that engine. 256422-Troy-R2. Here's a picture of my tiller and it has electric start. Hal

Put an ad on Craigslist - or look around at a small engine/mower shop. They are probably going to have one with a good engine and tires and a blown out transaxle. They go cheap. Almost all the MTD-built lawn tractors use the same parts.

You can't use just any engine. You need one that has 4 tapped holes for installing item 34 in this parts breakdown. Hal

2 ways, if it has the TB serial # tag, you can google it, and find it that way. Other way is to find the model, serial and code #, stamped on the sheet metal of the motor.

If you want to go cheap the 6.5 HP engine that Habor Freight sells (Predator) bolts right in too. I had an old one with the HH60 Tecumseh on it that was on its last legs - that cheap little Chinese built engine ($99 when on a good sale) really woke it up.

Looks like they "upped" the power (or at least the rating) to 7 HP.

I have one in my junk. I picked it up by a dumpster. Looks like it fell off a truck. Castings are broken. Has a 7 hp Kohler, seems OK except carb burnt. Tractor lug tires are good. Might be good as a parts source for one like yours. Located in IL 50 mi SE of St. Louis. Available early April when I return from FL.
