Repower a 7116H

Recommended Posts

xrisj
Has anyone repowered a 7116H? The guy I bought my tractor from told me that it had just been rebuilt, but I'm not sure. It's got a new head gasket in it, but seems to have a little valve chatter. Anyways, it's running, but I'm not sure how long it's got. I'd like to know if there are options for repower that don't require a lot of modifications. cj

I repowered my A-C 916H, which is the same as your 7116, except for the engine. I repowered it about 2 years ago with a Kohler Magnum 16hp. It worked out great with little alterations required. Sadly the "L" head single cylinders are pretty much extinct. If your tractor is in good shape, it may be worth looking into one of Al Eden's repower kit designed especially for this tractor. http://www.edensltd.com/repowereng/default.htm

valve lash on a nonadjustable vavle engine? most you could do is either change valves, reseat them, grind em, and or polish em. And the chatter is also from the top plate, vibrating

RS07: I passed on the repower from Al Eden last year, partly because more than 2K will buy me another tractor or even a nice guitar, but also because the 7116 kits need the frame cut. The Sovereigns with Kohler engines and the 7117's already have this frame cut. On your 916H, is it the same frame as the 7116? Could you install the kohler Magnum 16 without cutting the frame? They're selling these engines on Northern Equipment for less than 1400. Could you tell us a bit about your repower project? Thanks

I wouln`t be to concerned about the valve chatter. I have two new (326431) 16hp Briggs engines and the valves chatter a little while idleing.

      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!😁
