Is it one of the old B&S castiron engines? If so, they are a good engine. Check our Manuals Section for the manuals. Our sponsors can help with parts. Good Luck. Rick

Good engines for a Speedex!! Heh! Keep in mind if you HAD a kohler in your PK, the shaft size is 1-1/8" on those and the Briggs will most likely be 1". You would need a Briggs clutch flywheel then to fit. PK's did have some Briggs on in earlier years, but most were Kohlers. You have no K engine now or just need fixing? I would fix the K if it can be done, before putting this Briggs in it. Also, some of the Briggs used diff hoods cut-out for the gas tank and such, might not be room for it under stock hood. I didn't see if you mentioned what model or year your tractor was. Starters are a little diff on these older Cast engines and harder to find. They have new ones on epay from China if you look, prices all over the place. It has a little wider base to mount, than most other Briggs starters posted for sale. Get a manual or parts manual downloaded for the part numbers and shop using those. Carbs are avail in new, but not cheap, but may not include the upper tube to the block, so will need that one found also. Good luck!

Zat Jim Dandy then, that small and that new?? OR, 1612 they were listed at by then. I would go for the 14hp that was used on most PK's, even bigger ones and be easier to find too. Those 12's aren't really that weak or anything, maybe just needs little re-freshing? I did once put a big 16 single in my 24" Plastic King as the KT17 twin blew up, as the do. Had plenty of room under that big hood and the mount plate even had correct holes for a single, which was offered in those too. Had to change drive-shaft size tho, as engine moves back a ways. Think even on that big 24" the orig singles were just 14's??
