L-head replacement with V-twin

Recommended Posts

I am probably thinking way ahead too far, but it would be nice to know for future reference what kind of mounting compatibility you have with the 16hp twin in my 6216 and the more recent V-twin engines. I am impressed with the superior engineering built into the V engines,pressurized lube system and overhead valves being the main advantages. Can I drop a 20 hp Briggs or Kohler into the same space without major problems? If the bolting patterns are similar and the shaft sizes mate up, I cant see much of a problem. I have no idea how many hours are on my twin now, it doesnt smoke but,the plugs are sooty and I dont know how well they cared for it.
