Basically any engine you find that has the same crankshaft type will work in place of the existing engine. Typically the mounting bolt pattern will be the same.

If you can get me the model number from the machine itself, rather than the engine, I will get with the manufacturer and see if they have an engine picked out that they recommend as "the" replacement. But in most cases they will just recommend something with the same size crankshaft.

Let me know on the model number and I'll see what all I can find out.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Bye the way, The tapered shaft is conical shape. It is 2 5/8in. long and 7/8in. dia. at the small end.The fat part against the engine is 1 1/4in. dia. I only have tape measure so I don't know how precise my eye is.Also I left a message with Agri-Fab. They make a machine identical on the outside. It has a Briggs&Stratton 205cc. My dillema now is do I need to order their impellar assembly, guessing that it must fit on a 3/4 straight shaft since that is what I find on those 205cc B&S engines.

Briggs model 122012-0528-B8 used on Vac system 486.24717, used the same impeller as yours. The impeller is number 66791 (or old number 63924). Since both engines use the same impeller then that Briggs engine will work as a replacement for yours. This engine is NOT California compliant. If you're in California you may need to contact Briggs and Stratton and ask them what their California compliant equivalent engine is. Or just let me know back and I'll get in touch with them and find out for you.

Hi Wade, Hope I'm not too late to get some info. I believe I have the same engine as Stephen. Imeasured the shaft on my Tecumseh 8 HP engine, which is on my Agri-fab leaf vac chipper/shredder. The shaft is 2 9/16" long. The taper is 1 1/8" down to 7/8" over a 1 9/16" length from the block. I need to find and engine for my chipper shredder. Will the B&S you mentioned to Stephen work for me? The info off my motor is: Model MH80 155630S (C) Family STP318U1G2RA Displacement 318 Thank you, Ray

@Hrvarner: Check the impeller number for your machine, if it takes the same number I mentioned in my last post then yes, that same engine should work for your application as well. If your impeller number is not the same, let me know the model number of your machine so I can find a match for you.

Where are the numbers on the impeller? I have cleaned the impeller to include taking easy- off to it and can't find any numbers stamped on it. I'm going to try to find the books that came with it to see if it is listed in them.

Q:

I have a Craftsman chipper/vac, model 486.24516. I am removing the impeller. Is it a tapered fit or threaded?

A:

The impeller is mounted on the engine shaft and held there by the bolt that goes through it. Impellers are sometimes tapered and sometimes straight.

To remove the impeller, remove the bolt and washers and spray rust buster liberally into the hole the bolt was removed from. Start the bolt back through the center of the impeller and run it up until around 1/2 inch is sticking out of the impeller. Pry outward on the impeller with a bar as you hit the head of the bolt with a hammer. The vibration from the hammer hitting the bolt will cause the impeller to become loose on the shaft.

We don't have any information on threaded openings in the impeller.
