3112H ENGINE CONVERSION?

Recommended Posts

Dutch
To all members: I am the lucky owner of a 3112h the tractor itself is in pristine condition but the engine (briggs 300421) is fading fast. Although re-rebulding is an option i was wondering if any of the members have been abel to adapt a modern engine (ie kolher command, vanguard ect) to one of these tractors. Any help/ suggestions will be greatley appreciated.

John, I have converted a B-210 and an HB-212 to Vanguard V-twin engines. The 3112 would be the same, in terms of this conversion. It isn't that difficult of a job. Below is a link to a discussion message where Kent asked me if I could post pictures and a description for the "do it yourself" section. In my original conversions, several things were done so as to allow the tractors to be easily restored to original, should I choose to do so in the future. My opinions have changed since then, and I decided to make the conversions look like original equpment. I finished the job this past weekend (decided to do both tractors)and took pictures so that I may have this project posted. I do not have a digital camera as yet, so I am now having the film developed. When this is done, I will send the information and pictures to Kent for submission. As for now, I can tell you that the conversion is fairly easy and straightforward.

I have also done some conversions. My 60 Wards has had a 10 Hp B/s, a 12 Hp Kohler from a Cub Cadet, and now a 14 Hp Kohler. I also installed a 2 cyl. 14 Hp Vanguard vertical shaft on a little Murray (blasphemy) tractor. Basically, engine mounts, driveshaft hookup, throttle, choke, and exhaust. You may also have to move some sheetmetal. I am a proponent of moving hoods and grilles up or forward, rather than cutting them. This way they can be put back in original position if desired. Rod H.
