I am sure this has been discussed before, but what is involved in putting a 10HP Brigs cast iron horizontal shaft engine in a Simplicity 725? Thanks, John U

John, I now have a 14 HP Kohler in my 700 and still do not have a cut in the frame. There is a lot you can do to these tractors with a little prior planning.

I don't have nor have seen up close one of these tractors. BUT??.. from all the photograpgs I have looked at and mechanical drawings engine swaps/repowers should not require tin work modifications. Any modifications would be to the engine oil pan, air breather shortning,and minor frame stretching for the air box. Also the gen starter may have to have a diferent bracket made to lower it.

I bought a 725 with a 9hp in it and had to do a little rework on it




Dropped generator down and changed aircleaner to one that got off a old broadmoor
