I bought a 16 hp briggs exactly the same as in my montgomery wards variable 16 tractor I sl

old a while ago.I am going to clean it up and have it running good and be repainted,Ready to install.I wont rebuild it because there is nothing wrong with it.I was thinking of installing it on a david bradley walking tractor I have that has no motor or selling the motor,I kinda wondered which way to go and what I could expect out of the briggs motor,What are you guys thoughts on this.A 16 hp david Bradley might be fun or it might be a bit much I dont know

The 16 HP B&S I have is a monster motor. Might be a bit much weight wise for the DB.

I have two 18hp Briggs, One Vertical, and one Horizontal. I think they are worth more as spare engines for my existing machines. I figure the day I sell one, I'll need it the next day. Things like that happen a lot to me.

Thought I might need a loader on it to!!!!I gave 20 bucks for it at one of our auctions,Yeah I hadnt really thought much about the weight issue,could be interesting though if I work that out,Think of the plowing and blading you could do with all that power and you are right it is a monster of a motor

They will also fit many of the older Allis and Simplicity garden tractors. There is a decent market for those engines. I've seen them range from $150 to $300. Personally, unless it looks terrible, I don't think painting it will bring you anymore money.
