I am trying to help a friend with his Allis Chalmers garden tractor. He has a 716h that the rear gearbox went out on. He bought a 919 hydo drive with hydro lift for parts. Rather than swapping the gearbox he wants to swap motors. The 919 does run and drive but somehow has a cracked block and leaks oil near the left cylinder jug. Will the 16hp (k341 I think) bolt in the 919 frame? I know some of the wiring and carb linkage would have to be swapped but I am wondering what's the faster fix and he wants that hydro lift for the tiller.
