Hello All
I'm getting this tractor later this month with about 5 or more attachments . Numbers are 917.5751 series 212 . I don't think it has the original engine . Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Ted

I don't know much about them. I have a nice Briggs A could put on it. Nobody around here would know the difference .

How many horse it that? You would need a different air cleaner to clear the hood.

It will be to show. Got the Gravelys for the work! The Briggs A is 1 to 2hp depending on who you talk to. Don't know about the air cleaner clearance? The tractor is more than 900 miles away.

Great looking engine and tractor! Would you give me a measurement of the total height of the engine from mounting flange to top of air cleaner? Then one with the hood closed for maximum allowable height of an engine. The Briggs A engine above measures 16" total height.

Thanks
Ted

Hi Ted,

The Briggs Model A is one huge engine. The horsepower would not be a problem but the the weight might be. Those engines weigh-in at around a solid 100 #'s. The tractor would certainly be nose heavy.

Also, the overall size being close to a BS Model 19 would not allow the hood to close even with a breather modification. Another thing that you might have to do is to modify the engine mount to offset the engine to line up with the tranny pulley. I know the tractor models 57583 & 575100 are equiped with a BS Model 19 and have a special offset engine mount.

A Model A mounted on a David Bradley would look something like the "BIG 5" hoodless model .

Good luck with your project and keep us update.

Yes I didn't think about the weight. The size of the engine is small to me compared to the Z, ZZ engines on the Handiman Tractors. I guess try to find a N or 6 Briggs. Is it a special engine with a short air cleaner or just a standard N or 6?

Thanks All
Ted

It's the same motor, just different air cleaner. AFAIK
