I may try and do a "custom" engine swap. I am not afraid of cutting and welding. That way parts may be easily had for the engine that I end up choosing.

The price of a new 16hp like it has in it....is $2,400.

There is limited space in there for anything bigger. Even with a newer single cylinder I think I would have to do some cutting and modifying. But, I will see how much oil is really burning when I get to using it more and make a decision from there.

Nice machine. I used one last season that had like three thousand hours on it and on its second engine. Good cut though. Good luck with it and have fun this year.
