OK there where only minor changes to the code necessary. Deleted line 5, as UBASIC calculates long variables with a size of 542 words (whatever that is Smile) and timing (line 15 and 920) has a different syntax.

Code:
   10   input "X=";X
   15   clr time
   20   M=int(sqrt(X))
   30   F=0
   40   data 2,1,2,2
   50   for I=1 to 4
   60   read S:gosub 500
   70   next I
  100   if X<=1 then 900
  105   data 4,2,4,2,4,6,2,6
  110   for I=1 to 8
  120   read S:gosub 500
  130   next I
  140   restore 105
  190   if F>M then F=X:S=0:gosub 500
  200   goto 100
  500   F=F+S
  510   if X/F<>int(X/F) then return
  520   X=X/F
  530   M=int(sqrt(X))
  540   print F;
  550   goto 510
  900   print
  910   print "Execution time: ";
  920   print time1000/1000;:print "s"
  930   end

Your example of 167699497 is calculated in about 2.4 seconds
