Looks great!  That Briggs will run circles around the Tecumseh. The crankshaft centerline is higher on the Briggs so some mods were probably made so the belt wouldn't rub against the floor panel.

My Dad used a MF10 for several years to maintain 5 acres. You have a nice machine there that won't be overworked.
Look like they did a decent job with the engine swap too.

That Briggs will run circles around the Tecumseh.


Isn't it funny how different people can opposite experiences? I've never owned a Briggs I liked. Every one fights me each time I need her to run. Last spring, the mag went out of the B112 and I just hot wired in a coil. No warning, can't change the thing or even look at it without pulling the whole engine.
I was so frustrated, I did nothing to keep it pretty... Just functional. Time before that, it was a carb issue, and before that charging trouble.
