I damaged the shaft of my mower weeks ago. A 2008 Troy Built TB569. Prohibitively costly to fix. New mowers have too much plastic and cost too much for the features I want. After checking the specs and doing some research, decided I'll just change the engine myself. Lucky to find this exact OEM Honda replacement. The fan cover on the old engine is black, but I'm OK with red. Got complete set of new blade mounting hardware and drive belt from TB parts web site. Easy to install on new engine. One slight snafu: the mounting holes on this OEM Honda replacement are not tapped. But no problem, set of 1½x⅜ inch bolts, nuts, flat & lock washers and issue solved! New engine puts new life in this mower.

When you purchase this engine, don't the same durability from this as most of Honda's earlier engines.
The camgear is not made as well as it should be and operates both values with the same shaft, unlike other overhead engines from Honda which use pushrods.
