I know a guy in Hadley that has the Briggs 19D, i might go look at it this weekend. Naturally i would say go original, would drop in without any problems and be correct for the tractor.

 

The 23D would fit just fine being of the same size but the air cleaner might have to be changed, i am sure the model 24 would fit too if you wanted more HP but the 12, 14 and 16 hp Briggs would require modifications to the frame, hood and grill to fit and the drive shaft height might be a problem.

 

There was a guy that started to repower a Allis with a Lister Petter AC1 diesel engine, i really wish he finished it.

There are others that dropped in the Yanmmar diesel.

For gas engine you might try the K-line Kohlers.

 

If you wanted to do something unique you could build a sleeper :watch_over_fence:  a Briggs 23D made to look like the 19D on the outside but punched .030 over with a slightly shaved head for slightly higher compression and port the intake and port/polish the exhaust and use the larger carb jets.

Just got off the phone with a Simplicity collector and he converted a Landlord 101 to take the Briggs cast iron 16 hp, slight mods to the bottom grill bracket, top grill bracket and and hood, i would imagine it could be done with the Allis B-1 front bracket also.

The height of the PTO and drive shaft length was not a issue at all.

Tractor isn't the prettiest was on its way to the scrap yard but my uncle got it for the tiller on it. I might be able to get it cheap because he just wants the tiller heck I might be able to get it for free.

Free is good!

I think I would stick with the smaller engines so you don't have to cut up the hood. The later round tops 1964 and later were large enough to accommodate the larger engines without changing the appearance of the tractor.
