Looking for another Briggs twin cylinder

Recommended Posts

The replacement Briggs 18HP twin engine I installed in a *cough* Cub Cadet 582 decided to eat itself. The aluminum cylinder walls are nicely scored. It was never run low on oil or overheated. So...I'm looking for a good used engine that can be installed so I can sell the tractor. The 16HP or 18HP Briggs engines I need look like http://www.wheatfarm.com/ih_582/pictures/image8.jpg My dad expressed interest in buying the tractor from me, so I figured I should start it up after sitting over the winter to make sure all was well. Checked the oil, fresh gas, and cranked away. After a few seconds of spitting back through the carb, I did a quick compression check. 25psi in one side, 50psi in the other. Ouch.

I hardly hear of such serious damage under normal useage. I've also seen very good service from a rebuild. Have you priced a new set of pistons and a rebore? BTW, I wish I had something else to offer you.

      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
