Sorry Greg, but I don't think you'll be able to find a replacement any more. When I got mine in the early 1990s, I was told that what I got was the last of them and that no other 3.5HP could be used as a substitute because the power-take-off was a unique design. But if you want to look, however, what I bought is:

Model 96982
Type 5050-01
Code 85060304

I presume that it should be possible to rebuild the engine. Rings, bearings, valves and even a cylinder should be available if needed.

Mine still runs, by the way. But I drained the gas and stored in a dry place after I bought my Quick36. I may never again use it, but I bought those tires for it since I anticipated that I'd never again have an opportunity to do so again. Still haven't mounted them yet, but they are ready should I ever need them.
