    Default New Engine for splitter

    I need to repower my splitter. Currently has a B&S model 120602 0182 E1

    is there a way to determine shaft length and size from this serial number? I tried surfing the web but mostly find parts info

    vertical shaft......

    In my area I make templates for bolt patterns and measure shafts myself. Every once in a while things are ordered wrong by 'xperts and their 'puters.

    You can trial and error with an open end wrench to measure shaft diameter,barring better devices. The Honda knock offs at Harbor Freight have a good rep if it is not used hard and often. Cheap and everybody says they are great.
