I cant find a source for a B&S replacement motor.  Wondering if there are any options for powering it with something else? Or does someone know of a good used motor or maybe I am missing something on the new option.
Thanks, Mark

Your 1616 originally came with a briggs engine but it can be repowered with just about anything as long as the block has the correct holes to bolt up to the bell housing.  That said, many folks have repowered these tractors with just about anything they can get their hands on because they had the abilities required to make an adapter to make it work.  There are adjustments that need to be taken into consideration, primarily to the position of the clutch flywheel but it's doable.  Hey, even a diesel...  Check ebay as you can sometimes find something worth while there.

Hi can you not rebuild the B&S that is in your tractor? Its a 32xxx series and all the parts for a 14 - 15 - 15 hp engines are the same, and overhaul kits are readily available on e bay as are good used parts
