John Deere 524 Tiller Category
Original Model: Tecumseh 5HP H50-65392K
The main shaft on the original engine is 3/4" x 2-5/16". The PTO shaft is 5/8" x 1". This engine has been discontinued and there is nothing else that will directly replace it. You may be able to us a 6hp Briggs Intek OHV engine. However, the height of the PTO shaft is shorter and you would have to change your PTO belt or raise the engine up and use the same PTO belt and get a longer main belt for it. You would also have to change your PTO pulley to make this work.

While we may have sold many engines listed above to be used for a John Deere 524 Tiller 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.
