Hey Guys, Month old thread but was wondering about the Harbor freight 
small engines myself.

I have an old (probably late 80's) Sears / MTD chipper-shredder with a 
Tecumseh 5hp engine that's not worth saving.

Would one of these H.F. Predator things be a bolt-in replacement?
They have two "6.5 HP (212cc) OHV Horizontal Shaft Gas Engines" for 
$100, looks like one has CARB cert'. Got the manual on one and it has 
mounting dimensions, but I haven't torn mine down to measure how close 
it is.

I realize that's a vague question, but thought maybe it was one of those 
things standard acress many manufacturers.

-Thanks, Wayne
