The new tractor has very small mount holes for engine. Thinking with this model name should be a 16hp engine. Briggs has way too big of base/spread to fit that mount. I have an 8hp, which might be close to fitting, but not sure. I looked at my 12 hp K engine and even tho base is smaller, not as small as this tractor has. Wonder what engine it had?? Here's serial off frame if someone can give me a year and maybe engine from code? the bolt holes are about 4" x 7-1/2" at centers.
1641 129601 M
First four are model. Thinking date in next, but not sure how to read. First time I have seen an M in the stampings.
This whole tractor has a much narrower frame than most speedex, yet it kinda Long too. I bet it took quire a space to turn it around. It has a safety seat switch, crude like many times, yet is wired in. When did they make those mandatory? Might give close year. Not sure if any other safety switch on it yet, have to explore it later. the gas tank mount is in back behind seat. Another rules change. When did that change come into effect? The battery is under hood up front, just before grill.
