    The seal blew on one of the 52" & motor went kablooey. Anyone know where a new vanguard 16 horse can be bought for under the $1,049 my dealer wants (motor only)?
    Heck, I bought a chevy 350 long block for less than that

    Good luck Pj, It seems small engine's ( at least commercial ones ) are kinda pricey... I haven't dealt with these people personally, but try Small engine warehouse.. They have a website with prices etc... Good Luck man..

    Just be carefull when you get one of those motors from an engine warehouse type deal, most if not all of those motors are seconds or they didnt pass quality control for which ever company made them. some are ok but then again-------

    actually, even if you add a muffler to that, it is still cheaper to go with the 18hp

    Why not just purchase another 350? Surely you can find a way to rig it up.
