My buddy picked up a Sears 14 with a spare motor both OH140 motors ran good for 75.00 and somebody came along and offered him 4000.0 bot both and he took it, he's kicking himself now.

was wondering if by chance i wanted to repower my massey 10  or upgrade power what would be a suitable motor i was thinkin hp range from 12 and up preferably around a 16 to 18 hp but dont know if it would tuck in under hood or not I have a 10 hp tecumseh on it but it starts good but smokes quite abit and on the hils in my yard doesnt quite have the ump id like it to have

just trying to get some ideas an input on it

It's probably already been said, but if I where you, I would pull the head off

your HH100, and see how bad the rings/bore are.

You might get away, with just putting new rings in.

Those Tecumseh engines have plenty enough power, to pull your tractor

up a hill, unless, of course, you're trying to pull a whale behind you.

Sounds like you have had some experience, lol

yes just like everyone else has said definately use a kohler k-series engine!!! never seem to have power issues and its easy to find parts for them. if you dont prefer kohler you could also try a wisconsin. i find those motors to have quite a bit of power too!

The problem your going to have is, it will be very hard to find a set of +.10 or +.20 piston and rings, suppliers no longer have both the ring and piston set. they have.+.10 pistons, but not rings, they have +.20 rings, but not pistons. you should be able to get either a standard rod, or -.10, but I believe they are HIGH. try ebay for a NOS set of rings, piston, and rod.

I'm currently swapping a yanmar clone into mine. The HH100 fires with ether, but the carburetor and starter/alternator is missing. The diesel is a tight fit, but it should work. I had to get a 2 inch longer crank to variable shiv belt. And I'm building an intake and exhaust to clear the hood (I don't want to chop up the hood). I'm doing my best to not modify the tractor for this swap. This engine NEEDS a stack, it smokes a little, and it burns my eyes!
