repower an allis t-816

Recommended Posts

Can anyone give me an idea of what the best repower options are for a briggs twin 402700 i/c series engine? I am having problems with this 16hp, I lost the exhaust valve seat on the left side. I have peened it back in but now I seem to be having some carb issues as the float bowl refuses to fill. Either way this engine has seen better days and I think it is time to repower. I picked up a new to me 5216 that cuts real nice so I now have a spare;-) I would like to keep my ears open for a reasonably priced used engine so what are my best options? I am not necessarily opposed to doing some drilling but something that bolts right up would be nice. Also I think I would like to move up to a 18 or 20 HP. thanks

Thanks for the good info, My engine unfortunately is not in that document so I do not know if there is a direct replacement. I would assume that the biggest deal is the crankshaft dimesions matching up I think mine is a 1" Dia.3-5/32", Tapped 7/16"-20, which is available on a Vanguard 18 HP. And the next biggest deal is finding a muffler that will fit under the hood.
