Kohler 12 to Briggs 16 7012... Maybe

Recommended Posts

MercerRec

Guys,  the K301 12 hp in my 7012 went down.  I have a gear drive starter Briggs 16 sitting (w/the complete wiring harness) on the shelf from a 7016 6 speed.   At first glance it looks like I need to do the following:  Feedback appreciated.   Or a lead on a k341 !

1. Install the older, rectangle oil sump/pan to the Briggs?  This boss on the side of the oil pan interferes with the frame.

2. Find a 7016 drive shaft?

Heh.  Gotta love it.  After thinking/drinking a cocktail or two on this overnight, solved.  I mean it came out of a 7016 it should go into a 7012, right?  Well dum-bass,  Remove that oil drain plug thats stickin out a quarter inch and the motor drops right into the frame.  And look, the driveshaft is even the correct length.  That 12 Kohler must  really be bothering me with what went wrong.

Hey Mike, I didn't think that would work without having to modify the drain window.  Have you used that trick previously?

Removing the oil drain plug was the easiest solution for me. And the oil drain is centered perfectly in the Simplicity window.P1100936.thumb.JPG.d96e4eea12d1fd1003547904be10ee65.JPG

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
