New Motor

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if it is possible to take a Briggs and Straton engine out of a newer tractor (14.5 Horsepower) and put it in a 1976 Homelite CT10, made by simplicity (10 horsepower). The older engine is a Briggs and Straton also. I was just wondering if the pulleys would work on the bottom of the motor, on the Homelite. Other than that, both motors look about the same as far as build. How much trouble would it be? Thanks Clark

I've swapped four or five vertical shaft engines on tractors. Engines usually bolt on. Biggest problem is getting the pulleys to line up exactly the same on the new engine. Sometimes too high, sometimes too low. Usually you have to do some remodeling to get them to fit. Of course fuel lines, throttle cables and wiring may also be different. Overall, not really too big of a job. Most people could handle it.

Two things not mentioned 1: Main concern is there enough room? the 14.5 will be longer by maybe 5-6"'s 2: Wiring can be a problem. Different plugs and the 14.5 may have the fuel soleniod in the fuel bowl?

      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
