Brian,

I did not know there was one on Craig's list in the Madison area.

Just want to know more about the engine in case I do find one.

582 has 656cc Briggs.....surprisingly torquey and smooth. Aside from the carb being a bit annoying, not a bad motor.

I've had 2ea and they both were great motors after I rebuilt the carbs. Cold blooded if not run in some time.

Ok so how are the decks driven on a 2000 series? Off the front of the engine like the Mags? So the pullies are not interchangeable? So if i go with Command from 2000 series, attachment use will very likely be hampered. And as far as different drive belt length, that would be a PIA to find a quality one?

Get a Command with the same size crank and your clutch will go right on...

Matt and Steve,

Can you elaborate more on the carb and starter?

Also, I see from the parts look up this engine has exhaust seals. Do these ever go bad?

Some pics from the one I rebuilt. I never had any starter issues. Exhaust gaskets shouldn't be an issue. Carb is one of the more complicated Briggs designs, down draft, concentric, and incorporates the Briggs vacuum pulse fuel pump (makes them a SOB to rebuild, and cold blooded starters if they sit for a long time). I also had to replace an ignition module on one (on the way to a plow day at Travis's!!!)

BUT......it's a stout little motor that runs out nice when tuned well.

Jim,

Starter has a plastic bendix gear, which stripped on mine. Seems like a stupid thing to be made of plastic. Mine was a 580, a bit newer, and may not have had cast iron sleeves. I had to rebuild the carb, and I was glad to have the service manual to put that back together.
