Hi all. I have a 1965 Briggs and Stratton 7HP side shaft engine in a little Toro suburban.
The engine is on its last leg. I want to go through and get it rebuilt but time and funds won't allow it for right now.
Over the years I acquired a Wisconsin Robin from a old Yazoo walk behind mower that was backed over by the lawn care company that owned it. It's a ey25W model that's rated at 6.5HP from what I gather from the net.. It's in good running shape and everything matches up to my Briggs as far as crank size and position.
Any thoughts on if this would be a worth while replacement for the old Briggs on the little Toro riding mower? It's the fuji teledyne Flathead version.
Any thoughts or experience with these engines?
