Briggs only according to the parts book.

 

For someone used to el cheapo Briggs engines, seeing that big heavy cast iron powerhouse under the hood may be forgiven for looking twice!

It is the briggs hes thinking about putting a kohler on it in place of the briggs. Since some of the ignition parts are missing like the coil the condenser.

Simplicity used magneto ignition.
When that stops working, people convert to coil and battery ignition.
He needs to check a manual to see what type of ignition system it should have.
Simplcity did put a Kohler engine in some of their machines.
But, most were Briggs & Stratten.
