If I'm not mistaken, you may be able to use a block & piston assy from 170400 or 190400 engine models.  ....I think your crankshaft journals & rear cover will fit those blocks and connecting rods.

 

What is the model & type of your engine?  ....I remember them as being model 143302, but some paperwork says differently.

 

Are your engine numbers on a flat plate attached to the cooling fins? 

 

Is that flywheel puller a B&S tool ?   ...I never saw, or used, one like that.

 

ID tag sits on the flat plate PTO side of the cooling fins.

This engine is a 142301 -502075 Serial 239253

 

The puller is a B&S one , I think it shows it in their parts lists

Correction:  The crankshaft journals are the same for the 6 & 7 hp engines but are not the same as the 8hp.

I have a couple of those B&S pullers they work well. Hey that tractor is in pretty nice shape overall. I am wondering about the engine update???

Waiting for the surprise is half the fun - playing with it is the other half.  Hope it is what I am thinking it is.

Did you use any rubbing compound or polish on the old paint on the driveshaft - just asking as it may be oxidized a bit?

Looks about the same no matter what you do to it, this is about the average color I'm getting looking through the other small NOS items I have here as well.

I'll generally pull 3-4 different NOS samples to get an idea of what the color was

To my old faded eyesight I would say the lower paint is the closer of the two but it is hard to tell from a computer screen if you wanted an opinion.

The top one is too gold for me, I like the bottom one so far, took these out on the porch hoping they would look the best in the sunlight, but like you said hard to tell off a computer screen.
