just picked a 1982 jd 111 with an 11 hp briggs,the guy said he was cutting his lawn and it stopped very suddenly,he thought he seized the motor.the motor wouldn't budge so I got hammer and chunk of wood and got it loosend up,but still very hard to turn. it takes a huge effort to turn the fly wheel and that's by both hands with the plug out.the pistons moving in and out so cant be the connecting rod,or ? anyway I also have an 8 hp briggs from a 78 craftsman, does any body know if I can swap the 8 hp for the 11 hp without any problems ? thanks.
