Older billygoat lawn vac briggs engine specs
I'm not quite sure what year my Billygoat lawn vac is, I'd say its probably an 04 or so. Its got the older tan zipper bag. It has (had) a 5.5hp Briggs turd of an engine on it. Its been a mosquito killing fogger for a while and I knew it was on borrowed time, today it lost compression.
Trying to find shaft specs and what bolt pattern it uses so I can replace it. Harbor Freight is running a special on a 6hp vertical shaft engine for $100.
The HF engine mount specs:
PTO length: 3.2"
PTO width: 7/8"
PTO keyway 3/16"
PTO end tapped 3/8-24
counter clockwise rotation
mounting bolt circle: 8", 3/8-24 tapped hole
If this is a no go are the Honda engines some of these were optioned with compatible with a Briggs setup? I don't want to buy another Briggs, only reason I'm considering the HF unit is the incredibly low price.
