18.5 OHV Intek Plus engine
Does anyone know if I can change my 3 year old 18.5 OHV Intek Plus engine from my Craftsman DYT4000, model #917.273637, with other engines such as a plain 18 OHV Intek? What would be the difference? Today my tractor made a pop noise and a small white cloud and then stalled out. It will attempt to turn over , but not run. I think there may be a slight vibration when trying to start it and I found a small 1.5" crack in the casing just 4" above the oil release valve. Do you think I blew the engine? I wasn't even using the blades... What are some good sites to look at engines? thank you very much for your time.
