condenser thoughts for Simplicity.

Recommended Posts

I want to thank you all again for your thoughts on my tractor issues. I thought it would be easy to replace the condenser on my model 19 Briggs. It looks like they are hard to come by, so much for the possible quick and easy fix. Before I switch to a new type of ignition system, does anybody know of or has replaced the condenser with a compatible more readily available one? I would think that there has got to be one that can replace the original. The original was part number for the condenser is 291369. Thanks, Gene.

My Briggs part manual says the part number is 298060. Briggs part number 455022 replaces the old number 298060. Any outdoor power place that handles Briggs part should be able to order. They are around $10.00 each. Ebay is loaded with them. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=briggs+298060&_sacat=159912&_odkw=allis&_osacat=159912&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

The points are different also on the model 19 from the 19D's. The straight model 19 seems to be identical with the model 23's parts breakdown. At least for the electrical system. Now I am back to thinking that the 291369 was the original condenser on this motor. I greatly appreciate your effort and for sending me the breakdown! Gene.

Ray, I would think that Briggs numbers you gave me will help even though the condenser has a different mounting style to it. I would think that they have to be close as far as their capacity abilities. I could always modify the bracket or mount it external of the box on the side of the block I guess. Do you have any thoughts on the capacity abilities being the same or close enough? Thank you again for your help and time in this Ray! Gene.

I was able to find a condenser part # 291369 on ebay. Between the coil and condenser now on there way I am hoping this will solve the issues that have been plaguing me!!!! I am also going to try and grab a head gasket at my local Briggs dealer. Thank you all again for your help!! Gene.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
