need to repower B10 (had Big engine)

Recommended Posts

So some of you may remember that my B10 engine died this year. After looking around for parts to fix it I am realizing that I may be better off repowering it with a different model engine. So my question is what can I use (or what have others used) to re-power and update thier tractors? I thought of going with a snowblower engine since they are horiz shaft, but what model blowers or engines will have the output in the right place and what kind of output shaft size am I looking for? Thanks, Chris

Any of the single cylinder cast iron Briggs engines will work. Also Rod has put the single cylinder Kohler in his Wards I believe without any modifications.

Pull start will not work, as the driveshft blots to the flywheel. If you don't have a starter generator, you can pull start it off the right side of the BGB. I have a 725 that is pull start only. But to keep the engines pull start is a no go.

I keep seeing BGB... What does this stand for? Also the original engine output, is it threaded or a keyed shaft? I haven't tried to remove the flywheel from the engine yet. Thanks. Chris

BGB=Bevel Gear Box That's the box that's located under the gear shifter. It transfers the power from the shaft to the pulley system. Original engine output usually is keyed shaft on these tractors.

Elon, why do you say that you can't pull start a tractor from the BGB if it has a starter-generator? My Wards has the S-G and also has the pull start on the BGB. I have started it many times with the pull start when the battery gets low from sitting for a long time. Wrap a rope around it, give it a yank, and off you go.

Read Elon's post again, I think you might have read it wrong .
