I saw that right away, but I haven't been on the forum until today! I recently re-powered a 12G. What is that engine?

It's a 16 HP B&S Vanguard V-Twin. If you look at the hood, it is cut out for the gas cap (this engine came with the gas tank attached). The battery is relocated and the factory gas tank has been eliminated. The old girl runs good as new.

I bet that Vanguard really pulls! It looks like a tight but efficient fit. I had to alter the battery mount a bit ans take the factory gas tank off too.

 

For some reason the site won't let me "thank" your last post.
