    My project for tonight is installing an HB motor on a craftsman tiller I found next to a trash can. It's 24" and seems to be a pretty decent frame. The motor was seized, though. I've never done it before, but I'm pretty decent with a wrench and it seems pretty straight forward. With any luck I won't have to rent one again any time soon. Anyway, just thought I'd share.

    SUCCESS!

    I'm excited. I spent $110 dollars on a 6.5 hp motor and the tiller originally came with a 5 hp. I now have a very powerful tiller, and similar ones are priced at around $600. Tried it out on a spot in my back yard and it works great!
