If you don't need the PTO, an 8 HP Briggs will fit without a lot of trimming!  Would make a good putter around/tow tractor that way.  ~~   Lowell

Lowell,  what is the difference/problem I'm going to have on the crankshaft?  I have a good 8 horse Briggs but I need the PTO  :wallbanging:

The PTO  uses a clutch that fits the end of the crankshaft.  The clutch would have to be bored or the crankshaft turned to fit.  I think the JD 100 Briggs uses the same clutch.

I have a fancy Sears push mower with a 6.5 horse Tecumseh engine that runs good and even has electric start.  The self propelled mech [bunch of plastic gears] is worn out.  Got it out of the city dump years back.  I think it would be a bolt in but I would need a heavy cast iron flywheel because it uses the lightweight aluminum flywheel in combo with the cutting blade.  The original engine has a heavy flywheel but the coil pickup is on the outside of the push mower engine and inside on the Deere engine.  Whats the chance of me finding a heavy flywheel for this engine?

HELP!!!!

Sounds like you need just what I have sitting in my garage. A 6 or 7 hp. techumseh it runs but needs a carb and a rebuild wouldnt hurt

Thanks Tony!  Another club member has an 8 horse Tecumseh that is supposed to be good he has donated to the project but that engine has been setting in a shed for many years.  This engine has rope and electric start, the crankshaft is the right dia. and length so once I have it cleaned up I'll try it out to see if its still good.

Haven't had much time to work on the 70 [now 80] but it is looking a little better. 

The donated engine turned out to be excellent! I hope I can make the carb work somewhat right.

Have a question for you Deere guys - are you supposed to see the hair in the fiberglass hood or is it supposed to be smooth like sheetmetal?  I have patched the small crack near the rear and am ready to sand/paint the hood.   The front of the hood was perfect which is very unusual.  Just need to know how much to sand it.  ????

On the older ones, the fibers do show a little, though most restorers want them polished more these days!  ~~  Lowell

I just realized I forgot to post pictures of the finished product!  :hitting_self_roller:

 

The tractor was won by a local guy that is not active in the club.  His wife bought the winning ticket wanting to win the other raffle item which was a hand stitched John Deere quilt. 

He has no plans for the tractor and said he would put in in the garage under a blanket until he can display it @ next years show. 

The raffle did make money for the club.  Exactly $598 after all expenses.  The Saturday of our show was a total monsoon for 2013 so the club still lost money as a whole. 

The second pic shows the two winners of the raffle with their loot.   The lady won first and having her choice, picked the quilt.

We have done many raffles. Best $ maker for us for many years was the peddle tractors. We would buy one in the brand of our show, get Mr Ertle sign it, and raffle it off. 2nd and third places were usually models and $. One year, someone donated a wooden kid sized tractor. That went over very well.

The winners both look happy, congrats on a job well done.
Now, I need to remember how to upload that pic as your avatar. :D
