    I have a 190cc Timemaster that is showing tons of copper in the oil.

    I have two spare engines available that I can use for a swap.

    Honda GVC160
    Or
    Briggs 126T02

    Two questions.
    1. Which one should I install
    2. What is the crank snout diameter on the 126T02

    And if anyone knows exactly what size reducers I would need for either engine to fit the Timemaster pulley.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry that I can’t answer your question.

    What I can tell you is that I had a Kohler 224 engine installed and it has made a big difference in the mowers performance.

    Would advise against using a smaller engine.

    Any details on your particular swap?

    Direct bolt on?
    Pulley size fit shaft or a sleeve needed?

    I’d appreciate any information on your particular swap.

    I purchased the commercial version for the 3 year warranty. Pricy. May I get the information you need when we get home tomorrow?

    It was a direct bolt on except for one deck bolt that needed the head ground off. The bolt was welded to the deck. This was not a bolt for the engine.

    No worries. I’d appreciate the information whenever you can get it to me. Also if you can identify exactly what bolt that is that you mentioned.

    Here are pictures that you asked for.

    The first is the Spec and serial numbers. The second is the general location of the bolt. The actual location will be under the spot where the engine rests.

    Let me know if you have more questions. 67F34EB9-11F0-4B46-8B17-DE6283CD4A74.jpeg 1C655D6D-61A3-4A11-9198-B61F742643CB.jpeg

    @fatboynormmie here is a picture of the engine tag.

    Let me know if you need more information/pictures.

    Be happy to pass on the dealer's contact information, if desired.
