Does anyone know if a 6:1 gear reducer on a 3.5 B&S engine would be the same as one on a 5.5 B&S? Can it be taken off and simply put on another?

Sorry I think you will find that the side covers are different sizes. Five hp. will inter change with another five. but the 3.5 must stay in its same class.

Go to the Briggs site and download the IPL's for each engine and compare parts.
