Troy Bilt tiller engine replacement

oldcowboy33June 12, 2014

I am replacing the Briggs n Stratton engine on my Troy Bilt Horse tiller with a Kohler engine. Do I need to put a spacer over the shaft (between the tiller and the engine), so that the belt pulleys will be in alignment? If so how thick of a spacer do I need?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Assuming that you are re-using the pulley. All you need to do is to make the center of the cranks is the same distance from the mounting plate.
