Crankshaft Height Sovereign engines

Recommended Posts

haykarenhardy

Am looking for re-power engines for a 7100 series tractor. Need crankshaft height and diameter of OEM engines and overall height and width that would fit in a 7100 frame without lengthening frame or hood modifications. There are some clones both diesel and gas available but I need to know what size the 7100 frames will accommodate.

Thank you

Stan

Honda GX620 and Briggs Vanguards need spaced up 7/8" like the Kohler Triad. Simplicity still sells the Triad plate or you can space it up with steel stock.

The K series, KT series and Magnum series Kohlers do not need spaced up. Neither does the Briggs cast iron engines.

Kohler Command doesn`t need any spacing. If your 7100 frame is from a 7117 or 7119 you will not need to modify the frame. The side rails are already cut down to accept the KT`s. If it is from any of the single cylinder engines you more than likely need to do some cutting.

Small Engine Warehouse use to sell kits to put twin cylinder Kawasaki`s in them as well. Pretty much any twin cylinder small engine will fit that I am a ware of. Unless you get into the ridiculous HP engines. 18hp to 20hp is plenty of power for these tractors.

The base mount to C/S C/L dimension on Briggs 24, 30 and 32 CID engines is 6.127/6.152" on Kohler KT an8 Magnum engines , 6.125".

I assume the Vertical K engine 10 thru 16 HP engine mounting dimensions are the same as the KT/Magnum. Shaft sizes on the KT and Magnums and K360's are 1.125" . The rest of the Kohler inline's are 1", I believe and all of the Briggs are 1.00"

Thanks for the information, Ray and Bob. I need to start looking for a replacement engine for the 7112, it has no engine but does have the frame cut out for twins and the rubber doughnut drive shaft adapter, I just needed some dimensions without pulling one of my engines just to measure crankshaft height. I can do wiring and muffler changes long as I don't need to modify frames and hoods.

I stand corrected Brett! Lol

I am kissing up to Bob because a guy never knows when he might need help with a problem and the solution (Bob) lives nearby! ;)

      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!😁
