Engine Identification

Recommended Posts

I have a sneaking suspicion my B12 had a repower at some point. I can't get to the numbers on the engine shroud so the best I could do was snap a couple pictures. I noticed the plug location and the head was pointing in a different direction than my 10hp.

I'm thinking not the original engine?? I believe this to be a 14hp.

?? Chris; are the cooling fins on the head next to the plug raised up above the rest;(humped)? This would indicate 14 or 16 HP. I can't tell by the angle of your pic. Dave

Looks like a 12hp to me. Still has the "MFD for Allis Chalmers" decal on the blower cover. Has balance gears on the PTO side just like a 12, and the head fins appear flat, again indicative of a 12. A 14 is very similar. Only way to know for sure is to measure the bore. The 12 and 14hp engines have the same external physical dimensions.

As a matter of fact they are not. There is no raised fins. I did check engine and the only numbers I could see were 300421 I think it may be the original engine after all.
