The B&S Intek engine were only designed to run about 500 hours. To meet the demand for the big box stores to sell cheep mowers,etc. I have had many different engine is various GT's and the only one that blew was an old single cylinder Kohler in a 782 Cub Cadet. Have a Kohler single 7 hp in a Bolens Ram and a Magnum in an 1862. Other than that will stick with the Briggs. Rebuilt an old L head to put in the 782 and put a OHV 16 hp Vanguard in the 1650 Cub. Nice to have a smooth running engine. No shaking all over the place like the old single Kohlers.
