Input on a 12.5 Briggs Twin

Recommended Posts

Salthart
I have found a 12.5 HP briggs oppossing twin engine. I have never dealt with these engines but it looks like maybe it would bolt up in the 7117 I just got. Anyone know what kinda torque these things make ? Will it pull the hydro and a 48 inch deck ?

MArty I've never run across a 12.5hp horizonal shaft Briggs twin before. If it did bolt up( I imagine some serious fab work involved due to different "footprint")the power would be marginal at best with a 42" deck. I can't see it driving a 48" in anything over a couple of inches tall. Just my three pennies worth.

I would kill for 12.5 hp in my B-1 but it doesn't have a hydro either. I think the 12.5 hp twin would work just fine in your tractor. One of the features of opposed engines is that they have good torque. My opinion and you know what that's worth.

I haven't bothered to get numbers but I can. On the chance that it may help, This is on a snapper front engine machine. I have to buy the whole mower to get the engine and the rear end is shot. Lots of work for a person in my shape to get home.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
