Test Fit of Briggs 16 Twin

Recommended Posts

Here is the Briggs in the frame of the 7114. The sides of the frame would need to be cut down to allow clearance for the cylinders. It is as far back as the drive shaft allows.

The front mounts need to be a little farther back to get down inside the frame pan. The crank sticks out a ways to the front, it seems.

I don't know if there would still be interference between the hood and engine shroud with the engine mounted down and back in the frame like it should be. It seems pretty tight to me.

Of course the Kohler drops right in no problem. It looks like I'll be putting the Kohler 14 HP back in this one. Lots of room up front too. Possible uses for that space include....

The electric PTO clutch off the Kohler 12 HP, or.....

The hydraulic pump currently on the Kohler 10 HP in the other tractor I got at the same time. That would give me live hydraulics.

One thing is that I estimate I would need about ten inches from the block to mount the pump and fittings, about 4 inches beyond the current hood. I would need a good reason(like a loader) to go to the trouble of mounting it.

i really would have liked to see you mount the Briggs twin. I have been contemplating a similar swap on my 3314. I have a 20 HP Briggs twin, but it looks like some major cutting and welding to make it work.

That's why I'm going to stick with the Kohler, much less work to get it done. This will be my largest and most powerful tractor, and my first hydro too. I'm eager to see how it'll work. Have no fear, I'm sure that twin will not sit rusting away under the bench....

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
