    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.
