As I said above, I did an engine swap on a 12G the "G" means gear drive which is what the "Vari-Speed" is From what I understand, the 10G and 12G are basically the same tractor except 10HP Tecumseh vs a 12HP Tecumseh.

 

If it is the 10G or Vari-Speed tractor you are talking about, there may be some issues getting the drive pulley for the engine. The Vari-Speed belt pulley is specific to that type of belt and you may need an original engine pulley. That pulley may be 1-1/8" shaft size and most replacement engines will probably be 1". I bought a 20 dollar "adapter sleeve and key" to make my original 1-1/8" pulley fit the 1" shaft engine I re-powered my 12G with. From what I also understand the pulley setup isn't quite so complicated on a hydra-speed tractor.

 

The first pic is the shaft sleeve and the second pic is the sleeve installed with the pulley.

That adapter looks like a reasonable solution.  Finding an original pulley is proving difficult.  Where did the adapter come from?  Sorry, more questions and only one picture.

I think I can adapt the exhaust and air filter to fit under the hood without cutting.  Same for the gas tank.

I got that adapter on an ebay store. I googled 1" to 1-1/8" shaft adapter and found the store in the google list. I don't know if you would be interested as the engine is different than the direction you want to go but below is the link to my engine swap. I got a lot of help from the great folks on this forum. It's possible there may be ideas you can use, or what not to do too!

finally, as promised some pictures.  Not great ones, but hopefully at the end (and hopefully there is an end) it will make the finished pics all the better.

I believe this is an early model, 67 or so.  Has a 7/8 belt and a 1/2 belt.

Dry fitting the Briggs 10hp in place with existing belts.

113.JPG

This is a 75 or so.  I had looked them both up but have forgotten at the moment.  This also has a 7/8 and 1/2 belts

 

An MF7 I got for free.  No Hood but with a running 8hp briggs.  Came with a 4" pulley with 3/8, 5/8, 3/8 set on it.

If someone could give me a bit of info on their drive pulley that would be greatly appreciated.  I'm wondering if the same pulley is found on another tractor and so still available somehow?  Anyone have a manufacturer to check with?  Thanks a bunch.  By the way.  I forgot to mention these MF10's are my son's 4H small engine projects for the year.  I'll upload a picture of their last year's project.  Much simpler as it was their first year.
