Hey guys, my little Hustler Sport started shaking violently then wouldn't attempt to start. Discovered the Piston is going in numerous directions is what I was told lol. So I need a new engine. It had a Briggs and Stratton 19 HP 540 cc. I'm hoping to upgrade instead of replacing with the same engine for $560. Anyone know what experience what engines will swap easily? Was looking at a Predator motor from Harbor freight that 22hp or another B and S that's 25 Hp. Ideas? And no I'm not mechanically inclined. Lol

Find the dimensions online of the engine and find another with the same. Most engines will have similar dimensioms that should bolt right up.
