Excellent deal. The pictures on the Home Depot site are of exactly what you get. It has a straight 1" shaft as pictured (the description saying tapered shaft is wrong). Battery not included, but the wiring is there to hook one up. No fuel tank either, but a fuel hose with inline filter is attached and ready to hook up to a fuel tank of your choice. My engine arrived all the way to Alaska well packaged and in perfect shape. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it uses a small automotive type oil filter and has a detachable oil cooler that can be relocated to suit your needs. There was a little confusion with the throttle lever because it doesn't actually increase/decrease the throttle, instead it only adjusts the tension of the throttle bar. Anyone mechanically inclined can figure it out.
I purchased for a project other than adjusting the throttle cable some the rest went in easy. One odd characteristic about this engine is it has 24hp written on it though everything seems identical to the engine ordered.
The lifan 22 horse power engine is a real good replacement engine. I put my engine on a 1999 John deere gator and it has run good the motor is easy to start has the oil cooler and is pressurized. My only complant is the throttle was aggervating to rig up on the motor but is really good engine.
