Just to refresh everyone's memory, early this past summer I brought home two tractors, a MF 12G and an 8G. It looked like the 8 was in better shape, so I began fixing it first, with a new steering sector gear off e-bay, and a new set of blades from my local Massey dealer. With those issues resolved, I started to do some cutting, and got about 100 feet and the engine threw a rod and died. I spent the next several months looking at motors everywhere, trying to find one that would fit. I decided that none of the 9 hp imports that I was finding would fit. After a lot of looking I found the tecumseh "formula" series on ebay being sold by Small Engine Warehouse. My wife told me "Go ahead" so I ordered the engine and it arrived earlier this week. Here is how the two engines look.
