Jack's small engines is like the #1 online retailer for small engine parts.

950 for 10hp... I know diesels crank out the torque, but you can get a 22hp predator for 250-300 less.

Yeah but this uses about 40% less fuel and produces roughly 20lb/ft of torque. These are great as replacements for up to I think they say 25hp gas engines. But they weigh about 105-110lbs wet (oil and fuel).
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.

Be fun to use one of those in a very old and light commuter car when gas prices get back to 4$+ a gallon.
