11.5 pounds of potatoes in a 7 pound sack

Recommended Posts


I had previously repowered this salvaged 707 with a used  8 hp Briggs but it crapped out.  I couldn't find a new 8 hp but I got a good deal on this 11.5 on ebay.  The bolt pattern was identical and the hood that came with it had already been hacked up so I cut it back to make it fit. 

I had the machine shop drill the drive pulley deeper so it would fit higher on the crank shaft for belt alignment.

Had the muffler man fabricate the exhaust but I added the VW chrome tips to quiet it down. 

The grandkids love it.
