B & S Intek 5.5

I spent 3 days trying to find a new engine for my DR lawn Vac using the ID numbers on the OHV cover.
Come to find out it's custom made for DR with a shorter 1" shaft instead of the one referred to on the cover.
Ordered a new one direct from DR.
Installed it, filled with oil and gas, it started on the first pull but sounded like poop and vibrated at idle.
It ran all of 15 min. and conked out and will not restart.
It now pulls over like it has no compression.

Sounds like it's time for a phone call to them... brand new engine, I wouldn't risk messing up the warranty tinkering with it.

I took it to an authorized B & S shop.
Within a few min. they found the cam shaft had broken.
Now the hassle of getting it fixed or replaced.
