BRAND NEW CAST IRON ENGINES!!!

Recommended Posts

1978Simplicity7016H

I was looking around on the Briggs and Stratton website, and I couldn't bellieve my eyes. I guess they are only made in Asia where they don't have to pass strict standards. Anyone have a guess how we could get some from Southeast Asia back here to the United States? It's possible to ship, but do you think the government would step in and say they aren't allowed to be sold here? It's like going back in time and seeing these motors being sold brand new. It's pretty funny seeing the 18HP being sold WITHOUT a muffler or an air cleaner. I would LOVE to get one of these!

I still can't believe they are still making these!:D

I re-powered one of my 7016s a few years ago with a twin cylinder Briggs. It would have been nice to maybe use one of these, something closer to the original equipment.I am guessing they are probably half the price of the Vanguard I used.

In August 2003 I picked up one of the Chinese manufactured 16HP "326431" engines from Small Engine Warehouse. The box was labeled "FOR EXPORT ONLY Not For Sale in USA", but somehow it got here (via Central America I believe). It was complete with gas tank, muffler, and "rope start":

The engine code is 01103048 = '01, Oct30, plant 48 (China I presume)With a few mods, I used it to repower a 17GTH-L that I picked up with a blown KT-17:

Hey, it's not my fault Mr Fed.

I didn't know it was contraband when I ordered it online.

And after it arrived, I called you trying to find out what to do, but after being transferred a few times and put on hold for hours I gave up and figured it didn't really matter.

And it's really Kohler's fault for that toilet engine that failed...if that didn't happen I wouldn't have needed a new engine and wouldn't have bought contraband!

And Elliot, a few of the those engines were listed on their web site when I was looking for a replacement engine. Just lucky (or un-lucky?) I guess.

That 16HP looks sweet! @ 113# w/o the added weight of a S/G.

Did u have to modify the block to add that extra 25#/

that attached tank is a good one, if it's like the one that the po of my '69 LL substituted, 4 the 'Swiss cheese OEM. BUT it really needs some internal baffles under "field conditions".

??? why is the 18HP 5# lighter than the 16HOP ??? Surely an air cleaner, and muffler cant account for the difference!

Grinchey,

No block mods needed for the S/G. The S/G bracket bolts to the gas tank bracket holes if I remember correctly (or other holes that were already there).

I bought two of these from Small engine warehouse about the same time as Bill a 10hp and a 16hp. The 16hp runs great the 10hp is still in the box.

I wonder how much they are asking for them? Is Cast Iron a valuable resource?

Ray and/or Bill: just wondering, did your engines come complete with a charging system? Or did you have to add a charging system? Im guessing not since Bill has a S/G on his.

Just got back from a work China trip, those motors are there.

I've been working to get my hands on a few 18hp's. The import work-around to make sure you can import these "polluting" motors is quite the headache.

Manuals are easy to come by

id="quote">It is still a 32 CID engine. I noticed for the 18HP engine, the brag picture says "marine". If that's the case, it not uncommon to wind up engine speed 2-400 RPM to get a craft up and plane. But once out of the water and craft up to speed you generally pull on the throttle to maintain some engine life.

Horvik,

The clutch shown above is from Warmer; it was originally going to be used to replace the one on my Homelite T-12.

The Warner part number for the replacement clutch (shown above) for my Briggs powered Homelite is #5215-142, Warner part number for similar 1 1/8" clutch is #5215-140. I have drawings of both.

Here's a post about electric clutches and some of the headaches I've had with them:
