16 hp Briggs

Recommended Posts

Well, She finally popped. Ive been suspecting it all summer, but havent had time to pull the motor and check it out. The Briggs on my 3416 let go. She went pop and stopped. I towed it to the building with granny (my 3212) and took the head off. Crank turns, but piston doesnt go up and down. I'll take the motor off tomorrow and check out the crank. Maybe I can get by with a piston, rings and shaft. Its been low on power for a little while, and running real hot. I took the shroud off last week to make sure there wasnt a mouse nest in it. I did find a new 16 on the small engine warehouse, but I really dont have 950 bucks for a new one. ddh

Connecting rod broke right at the crank. Cylinder is grooved. I dont know if it is worth rebuilding or not. I'll post a picture of the piston and rod sometime. Anyone got a 16 hp briggs for sale? ddh

I drove up to Dover Pa and bought a 16 off one of the club members. He has a pretty little 3012 that he restored. Says he may be selling it soon. It was good to meet someone from the club face to face. ddh

      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

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
