I have talked to several Hunter dealers, Torresens, and posted on Craigs list. No luck so far. I was told a Yanmar 1GM10 would be an easy swap or maybe go to electric.
Let me know.
Thanks in advance, Dave

Dude, your 3-cyl 26 HP M25xpb is not the solution to every engine problem! This guy's got a 1cyl 8HP and thinking about similar.
