Need help converting 65 landlord engine

Recommended Posts


I picked up a 16hp Briggs to replace my 10hp Briggs on my '65 Landlord. Question: The 16hp has a built-in starter and no points. How do I convert from a 10hp engine to the 16hp no points engine? I'm guessing I don't need the starter generator but not sure how to hook up wiring. Any help would be much appreciated.

Easiest way is to use starter generator

The wiring would remain pretty much the same

But not the way I would do my own

If you look at a wiring diagram from a 7116

It would work for you

      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!😁
