Hi all, I am looking for an engine to repower my Springfield 25 model 62A. This one is just not very happy.

 

I think this mower originally came with a Tecumseh 5hp but was repowered with a Briggs 100902 Power Kraft as can be seen below.

 

Since I don't know the original engine model, I'm just hunting for another Briggs like this one.

 

Thanks!

Any old briggs or tecumseh push mower engine 3 hp to 5 hp should work and they aren't very hard to find

That a neat looking mower, my oldest would love to use that one. He wouldn't have to worry as much for hang the deck up on things, like trees, posts, buildings, and the house. LOL. He tries and that's all you can ask, he is getting much better, just gets nervous when mowing close to things.

Rebuild the engine that's in it. It looks like it fits the machine very well. You might have $100 tops wrapped up in rebuilding it. I like to use NOS parts when I can find them.

 

Check Ebay for NOS rings,connecting rod,gasket kit and carb rebuild kit. Those old briggs engines run forever.  It probably has a 1" diameter crank. You will have a hard time finding a push mower engine with a 1" crank.

 

STD Rings Briggs and Stratton 298174 A bunch to choose from. $4-$27 for a set.

https://www.ebay.com...298174&_sacat=0

 

NOS STD Briggs & Stratton Connecting Rod 297568 $18 shipped

https://www.ebay.com...FAAAOSwvs1dkC3K

 

Carb Kit $7.25 shipped

https://www.ebay.com...pEAAOSwo6NcRydc

 

Points and condenser. You can probably find a NOS kit for around the same money but the condensers do not keep well with age so I suggest getting a fresh 1. $12.99 shipped

Scratch my last post ya'll. I was feeling extra frustrated after having done fuel and spark and not seeing any improvements. Symptoms were just all over the place and totally inconsistent. Why would that be you ask?

 

Well... the engine was full of carbon, had a blown head gasket, and the valves could use adjustment. See where it was leaking on the top gasket surface and also by the top head bolt? It had two separate compression leaks!

I'm gonna be a diamond someday...

Gasket itself shows damage to match both of the carbon deposits.

Got some gaskets on order and I'll be tackling the valves here soon. Can't rule it out just yet...

Glad you dove in and figured it out!

Being as how it says power Kraft on it, that's an old monkey wards brand, so it's off of a mower or some other machine originally sold there back in the day

That was what I'd assumed. Interestingly enough, a 4 Hp Briggs 100902 is the correct original engine for this mower.

 

It is now running spectacularly given its age and condition when purchased. I also added a few things since last posting here...

Note the recoil rope sitting in the wagon... it broke yesterday while I was telling myself how well this project turned out. LOL
