Gilson Briggs in Simplicity?

Recommended Posts

The oil pan should be the only problem -- unless you need a different starter/generator mounting bracket. The starter/generator mounts a little lower on the side of the engine in a Gilson. I've pulled one out, but I haven't transplanted it yet....

I have a 16hp out of a Gilson which I plan to put in a Simplicity. As others have stated the oil pan and generator are the main issues, unless its a later engine with a gear type starter, and if you wish to continue using that type of starter, then you may have to deal with stators, rectifiers, and rewiring the tractor.

You may also want to install your old muffler on the Gibson and cut clearance for the oil ck tube and the metal strap that holds the simplicity round muffler bracket. I did this with a 14 HP Gibson conversion for a 3314v simlicity.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
