Before I do this , I thought I better consult! If any of you have experience with type of unit- AGCO , Allis, MasseyFerguson, Simplicity 2600series
tractors made by Simplicity (1995-2005).
The frame section for the motor mount has a raised lip in the stamping. If you look into the power plants that they used from the factory, choices were a single briggs -17 hp or Kohler 18hp I believe. There are also Vanguard twins in some models of Allis and Agco tractors- pressure lubed .
My Question is this : I have both a 16 vangard and a 19 Intek v twin that I found to re power my massey , but the fitting will require the frame lip to be cut to allow for the oil filter to fit? The White that has the 16 hp has a flat frame and could, on inspection, take the 19 intek in its place ( came from a cub cadet) and still have the front section of the tractor bolted to the motor. -same as White or MTD in design. I not against swapping both but would like to know what all think about this or parts that could help in the process to make an angled mount for a intek motor. This is getting to fun!
