T70 repowered with a Tecumseh. No cutting, chopping, grinding or welding necessary. Only complaint is this thing is loud, even after a new muffler! Starts on the second pull every time. A few washers were used as shims under the engine to raise it up though as it set a little lower than the original.

Basically I would like repower my panzer with a modern engine without cutting or modifying it. The old briggs is ok but I want to use this tractor to plow snow with. I want to be able to go outside and pull it and go.
Although they are no longer in production, a 7hp B&S 170400 model series or an 8hp B&S 190400 model series would be a direct bolt-in replacement for the 6hp 143302.
Finding a rebuildable/repairable 8hp engine should not be too difficult. ...The most important difference is getting the same crankshaft configuration.

I like these old briggs I have a few of them running on different tractors but I don't want to deal the potential leaky flo jet or fight with it when it's below freezing out

I got the engine in yesterday. No cutting or modifying anything. The only thing you have to do is raise the engine up a little which I took to pieces of channel stock. Which I bolted to the engine plate and the mounted the engine to that. I also took off the plastic gas tank and ran a new line so I kept the original panzer tank
runs great plenty of power
