Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Product is Great! I have had this engine for about a month now. We bought a Craftsman LT 2000 Riding mower with this engine installed, and it is very reliable, quiet, and powerful. It has about double what our old one had, and it is very nice to have! I have all good things to say about this other than one thing. I do not like how you should put stabilizer in with the gas.
