    Anyone know if its worth it to get a new engine for this mower? We have become quite attached and dont really want a new one. Thanks

    I would say so, get a shortblock. I think they can be had for about $125 and if you are at all mechanically inclined you could install it yourself. I have the same mower and love it also, but if it died tomorrow I would probably buy a new one and use the old for parts.

    The engine should be the last thing that goes on your LB. The mower usually falls apart around the engine.

    Use it for parts.
