Bobcat 724-5 Snow Blower Category
Original Model: Briggs 7 hp 170402-1406
This engine had a 1" x 3" shaft on it. The original engine is no longer made. The newer overhead valve engines are about 2" wider than the L-head style engine toward the right side as you are looking at the shaft side. The shaft height to base is 1" lower. However, a spacer kit can be installed to lift the engine up one inch. The 20D414-0019 engine has the same shaft size and the same mounting. Also the Tecumseh LH358XA-159537-R-SK has the same mounting and shaft size but the physical size will be different.

While we may have sold many engines listed above to be used for a Bobcat 724-5 Snow Blower Category, we are NOT claiming these are exact replacements unless the product notes explicitly say so. Many original equipment engines may no longer be in production because of obsolescence or EPA regulations, so in some cases there may not be an exact replacement available. Our intention here is to show that other customers have utilized these in the equipment shown, but may have had to make some modifications to do so. If we know of any required changes, we will list those, however, some adapting during installation should be expected.
