Looks like the gear box is missing and there is supposed to be some large springs attached to a bar that sits on top of that upper bracket on the tractor to assist in lifting the tiller. Probably some pins and stuff missing also.

I'm sure anything is possible. I'll have a look at my own if I can remember. I will post some pics.

Cool. Not sure what part of BC you’re in, spend a fair bit of time working up around Dawson Creek/FSJ area. Would have been nice to get down to southern BC but was never so lucky lol.

Here are some pics of that tiller part37b95fe55d50e6e516a818ad976b263b.jpgd38bf35a22321705dad4d2c8a2b89c25.jpg1e4f0dd7a31ac1470e7c51655953b926.jpg

I’m actually missing one of the springs, I think the regular tiller used 2 and with the extension they are supposed to have 3

The boys and I started attacking the engine last night.  Very little got done, mostly hung out in the garage really.  I had ordered a bunch of stuff needed for this briggs 10hp i/c so that it could be key start as it was in a pull start application previously.  I have two of these engines.  Have yet to take the flywheel off and check underneath.  Here are the items i have for the setup between the two engines and the two MF10's i have (1966 and 1974):

 

3 prong and 5 prong key switch

new battery

new solenoid

new starter

gear wheel for behind flywheel

On another 8hp briggs i/c i have an old starter and a regulator

 

 

At the moment, on the engine i would like to use I have a wire from the magnetron (magneto) to the kill switch, the spark plug wire, and one from the engine to the throttle linkage.  On the spare engine I also have two wires from the engine to a small red light mounted on the side of the engine.  

 

I believe the setup should be:

Starting Circuit:  battery to solenoid, solenoid to ignition switch, switch to solenoid, solenoid to starter.

Charging Circuit: two wires from engine (currently going to little red light) to regulator to ignition switch 

Ignition Circuit:  Ignition switch to magnetron to points and condensor

I don't have any accessories.

 

Two questions at the moment:

Am I missing anything?  Diodes?  Relays?  I'm not an electrical guy at all.

How is the ignition connected to the magnetron/magneto/engine?

 

Thanks everyone for the help.  I had my boys watch a very good video from a guy on youtube explaining the system so they (and I) are learning.

 

Lloyd

just getting around to wiring this thing up. I pulled the 5 prong switch and wiring harness from the 74 as the 3 prong ignition switch was seized.

not sure what the additional connectors are for? didn't get the starter to go when I hooked this up and turned the key. any suggestions?

any idea what the two connectors are for. one has three sections to it. it's black and in the top left corner of the first picture.

the other is a white connector and has three pin connection.

the red wire with the ring connector I believe is the to connect to starter

another connector from the 74 was two wires connected back near the transmission underneath. the 66 which I'm restoring didn't have the wiring harness so not sure it had this item

I have an 8hp Briggs in a mf7 I got for free but my understanding is that won't power the tiller adequately.

got the wiring set up simply just to check to see if it will run. turned over but battery died before gas even got to the carb I'm sure. will have to charge it up fully and throw some gas down the spark plug hole
