    hey guys, i got the two rear enging snapper riding mowers and will be hopefully getting them running. along with them i received one self propelled snapper push mower and two frames and 4 engines. my question is, how hard and what all is involved in putting together the frames and engines and getting them to cut?

    may be easy or hard depending on your experience. get one running and let us know if it was hard for you. good luck.
  3. If you have manuals its going to be a lot easier-the 21s are the easiest. Plus the more you do the simpler it will seem.
    If you hit a snag ask a specific question, much easier to help you at that point.

    the only problem you might have is the bolt configs

    You may have more problems than just bolt lineups. Pullies and shaft size may also prohibit you from transplanting engines on them riders. It could take you an hour or less or much longer. One 21" transplant once took me 5hours and three bodys since i had a non bbc model and sp with different shaft sizes etc.
