a friend of mine is selling a 5.5 horse side take off engine (from an old snow blower) which i thought someone here may be interested in. it's got some (apparently, i know little of these things) older more unique features such as a remote oil drain and oil dipstick. i didn't quite garner the exact throttle control thing, but it's designed to maintain power under load rather than bog down. iirc he said $150, not sure if that was accurate. give a holler with questions.
