|Q: I've a used (1985) Toro Groundsmaster with a 20HP Onan on it's last legs. I may be able to locate a replacement Onan with similar specs, but since they are no longer made, I wonder if I am not better off doing a repower with a different brand engine.
The Onan is a P220G with a tapered shaft, but that end isn't used to hook anything to in this unit. I didn't see anything mentioned on your site referring to this combo; do you have any suggestions as to the best way to go?
A: We have repowered about every quality machine out there and we have done that one a fair amount of times before. I can get you set up with a new V-Twin Vanguard 18 horsepower engine which is underrated and actually puts out a short 20 horsepower. We also have a Vanguard 23 horsepower engine. The installation kit includes a choke cable, throttle cable, exhaust manifold, muffler. stub shaft kit, oil filter adapter plate, oil filter auxiliary kit, electrical relay, and bushings.
