Speaking of vibration, my mv 16 shakes like it has a hemi in it.now I know they just do it,always wondered but never asked.does look kinda cool when it idles.lol

If you notice, the 16hp cast iron Briggs was not used on a lot of garden tractors save for Gilson, MTD, and  Simplicity.  I think the vibration is the reason.  It is a very large bore, long stroke engine for a small engine.  I also love how mine looks when it idles, also love the sound at idle.  That engine is capable of idling pretty slow.
