Briggs 3310 Repower

Recommended Posts

I saw this engine listed on the Small Engines Warehouse site. Not sure how to past a link, so here's the data: Product Number: 350447-SIMP Tapered shaft Vanguard 18 HP ES Engine kit for 3310, 3314, 3410, 3415, 3416. It has a tapered shaft, which I'm not familiar with. Seems that any front mounted equipment, like a snowthrower, wouldn't work, because my original engine has a straight shaft. Anyone have any comments or words of wisdon om this engine? Thanks JF

"is there such a thing as a pulley to fit a tapered shaft?" Think there is an adapter available to convert the tapered shaft to a straight shaft. Is a female taper that bolts on over the male taper. Not sure where I saw it so would have to do search. Maybe one of our other members can supply the source.

Thanks all: I'm hoping to repower the 3310 with more than 10HP. I'm contemplating a 16HP Cast Iron Briggs, but I haven't had any luck in finding someone around here who will also build a crate and ship! One fellow is a nine hour drive, and I just can't stomach the drive and hotel bill. I'm contemplating a cast Iron Kohler 16hp magnum, often seen in the Northern catalog. This would keep with my desire to stay with cast iron, while they are still available. Does anyone have any ideas on how this would work? It's listed in the Fall/Winter 2007 catalog as item #60163-1801. What are the differences in these engines Then, of course, there's the family of 16HP and 18HP Vanguards that are very widespread. I can't figure out why SEW decided to convert a tapered shaft engine, however. It will be interesting to see what the deal is on the tapered shaft adapter however. Thanks again.

      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
