By the way, member stripmine has an owners manual for that tractor on his site. He uploaded it in three parts.

The piece behind the pull start unscrews off the end of the crank. I don't remember if RH thread or left tho...

You're as far ahead to take the piece to your local small engine repair shop and see if they have one. If not, take the 2 little bolts out and be careful not to drop the little balls. Clean it all up and spray with a light (like blaster) oil. Just enough to slow the rust.

Then you will need to lube the square part on the shaft. I'm not explaining it well, but you'll see when it's apart.

I would contact one of the site sponsors regarding kits. One of them will have access to them.

Either I should or send the engine off to be rebuilt because engine is consuming a lot of oil. Hoping its just rings, I would hatento hear bad news like cylinder wall damage.

If you have a carb issue, it can run gas into the oil, thinning it. Then you have a lot of oil in there that's thin and will blow past the rings easy. Also more possibility for damage.

Make sure the oil isn't gas laced.

Do you have a small engine shop nearby?

Does anyone know the horsepower rating for a b&s model 9? I believe its a 1956 year. Thinking about doing a engine swap until I can rebuild the original 14 engine.

I found a listing showing a 2.25 bore by 2.00 stroke. General rule of thumb ive been told. 1cu in is approx equal to 1 hp... so, convert that cyl to cu in. And get 7.95

I also found a list of conversions. It said that engine tuning, compression, detuning and any manner of influences can change the conversion drastically, but that 16 cc is approx equal to 1 HP

So convert the cyl displacement to cc and divide by 16... 8.125

I'm sure it's not spot on... But "around" 8hp? Same formulas on the 14 show "around" 11.
Anyone have a reference that says?

I was weeding and thought "that can't be right"

The model 19 that is in my 725 is a 7.25 hp engine.
It has a bigger bore listed than the 14.

Never mind everything I've posted in the last hour... Heat must be getting to me :D

If it were me, I'd send the site sponsors each a PM or post in their forums. I'm sure one of them has rebuild kits for them.
