Carb swap

Recommended Posts

I don't think there's a problem with doing this, but will a carb from a "long intake manifold" Briggs swap right over to a "short intake manifold" Briggs? Both are 10 hp engines. The donor is a 243431, 2580 01, 8506261.

The recipient is a 243431, 0196 01 7008281.

The carb will interchange without any problem. Besides the length of the elbow, the only difference is the length of the throttle link between the governer lever and the throttle shaft of the carb. Pat

Kirk, Yes you can do that swap. The 10Hp B/S that now powers my AC716 has the carb and tube from the 7.25Hp B/S that originally came on my 61 Wards. "A carb is a carb" as long as the jets allow you to adjust it properly and you can get the governor linkages to work right. I had to make a new rod from the carb to governor on the above setup because of the different location of the carb with the shorter tube. With the smaller carb I picked up considerable low RPM power because of the higher velocity flow through the smaller venturi. The original carb was much larger, but it is also the same one used on the 12 and 16 Hp engines.

      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
