Snapper 2 cycle

I have a Snapper self propelled walk behind lawnmower, Mod# RP21500T2. The mower is in good shape. But the motor 2 cycle, Mod# FTYXL8408456F is shot. Is there a replacement motor that will fit on this mower?

First off, welcome to MLF!

Sorry to hear about the motor, I'd need to research that a little unless some else jumps in here. Are you looking to for another 2 stroke or a 4 stroke swap?
I don't now if you have a parts book, but these are listed as alternate engines.

If you want something more modern I suggest you measure your bolt pattern, shaft length and size, location of controls etc.

You can contact online companies like and they can cross reference your engine to something more modern as well.
I would be satisfied with any motor that would work. Thanks for the reply
