Nope. The engines on the MD mills are highly modified by Mobile Manufacturing. They modify the case to accept a large thrust bearing to withstand the lateral tension of the belts, and extend the crankshaft to accept the pulleys. You need to contact them with the serial number of the mill to find out exactly what engine you have. If the lady doesn't have the manuals that came with it, get them from Mobile. There are some parts that are exclusive to their engines, and they require special procedures when you put it back together.  ;)

No doubt they mod them, my understanding from talking with MD when I was shopping for one
was they did use the 126 series engines for a period of time.

Thatís more of what I was wanting. Thanks everyone. I think I found my mill. Iíve seen pics and now a video of it running. And cutting. Next is a deposit to hol it until the weather gets a little better. Then either a plane flight and rent a truck check it out good. Spend some time with the seller getting to know the mill, haul it home 15 hrs or drive up and do all that. Thanks again. Iíll take some dial calipers with me. Iíll keep yíall informed with a follow up after I look at it.
