  1. Massey, Snapper, AMF Tractor Forum
    I'm looking to repower my 1655 or maybe rebuild. It currently has the original Onan BF-MS/3221E. After a lot of searching on-line I feel that a repower is the best option. But the kind folks on this site are the experts! I'm handy but not enough to do a rebuild and would need a shop to do...

    When I started moving things to my shop I put them on pallets and crates, then covered them all with tarps since I didn't have a dried in roof, yet. I was moving things around today so the electrician can install lighting on the east side of the shop and I came upon this: It must not have...
  3. John Deere Tractor Forum
    I just bought a 1996 JD 425 at a government auction. The unit has a 52? inch mower, a cab, and a non-working engine at 1034 hours. This is in the year groups for the infamous plastic cams, so I suspect the engine has succumbed to this problem. I'm considering repower options. I have an 18 hp...

    Recently acquired a very beat up jim dandy, dressed to look like it was in much better condition. Kicking myself for having not seen all that was wrong with it... about 10 different sorts and grades of hardware, missing washers, stripped threads, governor gear blown in the old briggs and was...

    I'm doing a temporary repower on my massey 1655 and have a predator 670 for it. I have other plans for the original clutch so I can't shim it to fit the 1" predator shaft. Does anyone know of a 1" pto clutch that will install on the predator? Eventually this tractor will get a kubota diesel...

    sterday, 04:44 PM Hello all, 1400 medfra here. I'm new to GTT and posted some pix of my Bolens a few week back and listed a couple of its problems. A few folks complemented me on it's nice condition. I was quite elated as it looks very nice and came with a snow blower, deck, tiller and all...
  8. Sears, Craftsman Tractor Forum
    I'll use this new thread to document the installation of a Honda GX690 into my 1976 Sears ST12 tractor. After looking at all the major manufacturers for a new V-Twin engine, I settled on a Honda GX690. The specific engine model is the GX690 TXA2. All I really needed was the GX690 TDW, but the...

    Last summer I picked up an Onan RV Genset with a Kubota 3 cyl diesel (662?) in it. The genset runs at 1800 rpm and the engine puts out about 11hp at that rpm, but about 16 hp at 3600 rpm. I bought back my Bolens HT23, only it now has a daylight block (tough old bird still went up on my trailer...

    So I bought a Sears Suburban 12 at the beginning of January because I needed a project. It appeared to be a 1968 model # 917.25350 electric start. The only attachment available with the tractor was a snow-dozer blade which is missing the rods to change the angle but has the height adjust lever...

    Unfortunately, the time has come for me to offer up my prize JD400. I have several threads relating to the build. I have added some attachments to the tractor I\'m taking offers, but nothing less than $3,000 I do have a parts engine I can throw in if we settle on a price. It went from this...
  12. Allis Chalmers, Simplicity Tractor Forum
    My original engine has failed after 25 years of use. I have decided to repower my SImplicity with a newer Briggs engine. The new engine is a Model: 49T877 Type: 0006G1. What I need help with is what wires from the original harness connect to the new engine harness. From Tractor harness...

    Many years ago, my parents bought a 26 ton splitter. It has heated a home for probably a decade. From day one, however, it has been a hard starter. I believe there has always been something wrong with the engine. I personally have worn out one starter rope and was well on my way to another...

    Alright.. Just finished installing a Briggs 18hp in my Case 444. Runs great.. mows like a champ. A few odds and ends that need finished.. figured I would find a forum and post them for some ideas. The #1 thing on my mind. The engine is now bolted directly to the frame. I have seen this done...
  17. Diesel Garden Tractors, Repower & Conversion Forum
    I have a line on a low hour CH18s and am wondering how much work it would be to drop that into a JD 317. It would be replacing a series 1 KT17. It's a V twin versus the old opposed KT17.

    After being followed home by a ratty old 646 in August I am about ready to begin it's reassembly. I have been trying to remember to take pics as I go so here they are. The previous repower was a 16 Hp Briggs with a vertical shaft and all I can say is it was a bad choice. With no space under the...
  19. Diesel Garden Tractors, Repower & Conversion Forum
    Another tractor followed me home the other day and this time it was an older 646. Structurally it is sound but it ends there. Banana plate and associated hardware is all shot and the engine is not an Onan and it smokes like a house afire. I don't know if this will work or not but I intend to...

    I'm not sure if this needs to be in the Diesel Repower Forum so if I need to move it, I can. I'm trying to get my Ford LGT165 going. I've looked for a good running Kohler K341 engine... plenty for John Deere, etc. Will these work in the Ford? Another option is that I have a good running B&S...
