    Default Gator engine? - FE250 or 290 for an early 4X2

    I just bought a used Gator 4X2 and am a little confused about engines. As near as I can figure it's a 1995 and from the engine plate it has an FE250 but all of the JD documentation I can find says only the CS had that engine. They list the FE290 for the 4X2. SN is W004X2X012137.

    If any one could offer any info I'd appreciate it. Thanks

    Thank you!

    I think that explains it. This thing looks like it spent most of it's life sitting inside. NO rust, tight steering and other than a broken fender, very clean.

    Probably had an engine failure and sat for a few years. Then got a "new" engine from a CS and sold.
    After a lot of looking this is the cleanest I've found. Other than the engine issue (the 2HP doesn't bother me) I'm happy for $1800.

    Thanks again for clearing up the mystery!
