Giant Vac 5hp Briggs

I have an older Giant Vac blower with a 5hp Briggs. It is the older motor with the gas tank mounted below the carb. It has served well as a backup and a nice small blower for use on hills etc.

Well the motor went today. The rest of the unit is in perfect shape. so I figure I can put a new motor on it.

Can anyone give me the right motor, that will fit? Between the wheels? The height of the crank to the blower housing? The crank size to the blower fan?

Anyone steer me as to where I can get a good deal on one?

Thanks

If you post the model and type numbers off the old engine I can get ALL the specs and take it from there, Without them it's anyones guess.

I am not sure of the history of this motor. IE I don't know if that is the original cover with etc. I have had it for about 5 years and done nothing other then oil and tune ups. I know the shaft is 3/4 by about 2 1/4 and tapped for 5/16 bolt. This blower came off no problem. I am not near the engine now.

Again looking for an economical replacement.

OK CT,

Using the model and type numbers you posted I found the exact replacement engine to be a model #126332 type # 0536....

Here is the dimensional drawing on your old 5hp 130200 series;




Here is the drawing for the replacement 120000 series;




What you need to do is use the measurements for the replacement engine to compare with your blower to make sure you have the proper clearance so nothing hits.

If you have the room and the crank is the rite size on the engine you posted the link to, Go for it......
