HOW TO TELL WHICH BRIGGS ENGINE I HAVE?

Recommended Posts

simplejim
i just hauled in an early [i think] b 10 allis.one of the engines i have laying around is i think a model 19 briggs but im not sure.it has no tin,carb or exhaust[although i have these items on the shelf i could put on it.the b 10 needs an engine and im considering finding the blower housing tin and using it but i cant find any numbers on it anywhere.it does look very simular to the model 19 in my simplicity 700.does any have any ideas on how to i d this engine.short of tearing it down and measuring bore and stroke?

If it is a model 19 it will not fit an early b-10 without drilling new mounting holes and using spacers under the pan like on the 700 in order to obtain the correct height to the driveshaft because the 19 is physically shorter and narrower than the 23D and larger engines.

thanks tec2484.i was thinking the same thing but was hoping the the model block might have some distingushing features.thanks Chris i hadnt measured yet but im not suprised.if i have to fabricate i have a good running k341 16hp kohler just itching to get into a tractor,i know Rod has a 14hp kohler in his wards which is like my 700.im not sure what modifitcations it took but im also debating on modifiying the B 10 just enough to make it 16hp kohler powered.i have a couple of weeks to ponder before i start on it and may take time to pull it apart and repaint it as someone done a very good job of painting it orange.
