How easy is it to replace Alko lawn tractor Briggs and Stratton engine?

They are pretty basic, especially if the replacement engine is complete with carburator and exhaust. There should be 4 bolts that hold the engine to the mower, the electrical connectors for the ignition and starter, the throttle cable, & the belt pulley on the crank shaft. If you take good notes and pictures of the old engine before you remove it, just make sure the new engine goes back on the same.

Spark plug gap

Hi Carl:
Make, model, engine, plug you're using, all info would help
Stores like Canadian tire that sell plugs usually have a chart telling what plug and gap are appropriate for what application.
If it's a 2 hp 1950 6 hp Briggs & Stratton, try 35 thou.
Cheers
