I could possibly make it fit. I like the looks of the dash tower with no handles on the side. I would rather it be on the fender but doing that and making it look and function well could be hard.

Maybe mount it under the fender or the seat and just have the handle stick up thru the fender that you could put a rubber boot on to dress up.  I know a guy that had a 123 with hydraulics on it like that at one time.  Don't know if he still does or not but it was a clean job that you would have swore was factory.

I've thought about mouthing a small ammo box on the fender. One I could have a toolbox abd two it would be a place to put the spool valve. I know it wouldn't be factory looking but it could turn out ok I think. There isn't alot of room under the fender. I think tire clearance would be a issue. I'll have to play around with it and see.

Hauled the 16 in the shop and heave hoed it on the work bench. Starter and regulator bolted on. Starter seems to drag. Added points...

While checking the carb I noticed a ton of play in the throttle shaft.

are you talking about the governor linkage that connects to the throttle? Is it loose in the block? If so, then it needs a new bushing pressed into the block. Otherwise it could leak oil, and the throttle will be sloppy.

I know the linkage piece on top of the shaft is loose but what about the shaft itself? Like mentioned before it's there a bushing? It looks like it.

Wow, that shaft is about to fall out. I know the Walbro carbs have bushings on both ends, but yours are gone including some of the shaft and carb hole :D  Just kidding, but never seen that much play in one.

Love those tires, nice and square and you got dual rear brakes!

The brakes don't work. I need to fix that and one day maybe put steer brakes on get Bobby said that the po said this engine smoked. I wonder if that could be the issue?

I'd say that carb needs a complete rebuild.  New throttle shaft and bushings and possibly needles.  Never seen that much play in one of them.  If you are worried about the engine smoking I would run it first and check the smoke.  If it is the carb it will be black smoke.  If it's oil it will be blueish smoke.  If the motor checks out ok then I would move ahead with the carb rebuild.

Will a 10 or 12hp carb work on this engine?

16hp has a number 30 carb on it whereas the 10 and 12hp's have a number 26 on them. 

 

 

As for the brakes I would check all the linkage for binding and get them all free'd up and then get them readjusted per the manual.  I couldn't find the manual you need here on the site but did find it at one of my other haunts if you need one.

Nice project! How do you plan to paint it? I use a sealer, primer, and then a Cub Cadet paint. A Dayton heater flashes the Cub Cadet paint, and the out come of quality is second to none. Take my word for it! The factory paint on one of my tractors is over 47 years old, and still looks good. But it can be expensive. Well, good luck!

The 341 I planned to put in this will go to fix the massey. While I'm not fond of using the 12hp I know it's a good running engine. I don't plan on plowing or anything with this so the 12 should be plenty for general yard duty. As far as the paint I'm not sure. I'll cross that road when I get there.
