    Engine swap

    Hi, I am new here, I have a 1998 MTD Lawn tractor from Tractor Supply Co. Huskee GT with an Briggs 18 hp opposed twin. I bought it for $325 when it was 2 years old and it had been used hard by a landscaping co.
    I put a new front axle on it and have mowed almost 4 acres of uneven and sometimes rough terrain with thick grass and weeds for 18 years. The engine finally gave up this year. I don't see how you could ask any more than that.
    Now I have found a replacement engine and am finishing up on the change out. Old engine was a 42A707 new used one is a 42E707. Should be giving it a test run soon.
    thanks for adding me to the forum.

    Welcome to the forum!

    It sounds like you've gotten a good twenty years out of that MTD. Here's to many more!
