    Briggs Engine Part needed

    I have a for a Briggs 402437 0694 01, 16HP from a Work Horse GT1600. I wonder if anyone has the side cover from this engine or the 5/16" x 2 1/4" pin that hold the governor gear on the cover? The part is not shown as a part you can even buy on any of the briggs sites. It's snapped off and I punched it out easily, just need another now. I have the new governor gear already. Thanks, Ken

    I'm also bringing this sickle bar mower. It's been modified by the previous owner and was told by his son that he used it on an 855 I believe he said. I've degreased it and used WD40 on it so far.

    I'm bringing my dad's old 502, I just don't think I have the time to work with it. I have to choose my projects. The deck looks in really good shape. He used it with a blade. It will run, it just needs some work. Also an extra deck suspension and gears.

    1983 - Work Horse GT-1142 Restoration

    This restoration of my dad's 1983 - Work Horse GT-1142 started out just fixing the carburetor and missing linkage. Sadly, my father passed away, while I was waiting on some parts to arrive. It soon became a full on restoration and what I call "Tractor Therapy". The restoration was pretty much completed by the end of July 1, 2016, but I then found a 42" side discharge deck and began the restoration of the deck. All parts are new except the actual shafts. As with the tractor sheet metal, I had the deck bead blasted and painted at a local body shop. The decals for the restoration came from redoyourhorse.com I've also found a few old pics to include an old trailer we had. I found that trailer in the weeds all rotted up with only the angle iron steel frame, all plywood gone. As of May 2017 It's now painted black again and will be put back to work after 30 years of rotting in the woods in Northern PA, it's going to get a lot more use.

    We are in the same boat. I drove this thing from the time I was 14. I restored it after my dad passed away last May. I know there are some in my area on Craigslist. I have 2 other GT-1100's and a GT-1600. The one GT-100 is my daily worker, the other had the engine blow last year and I replaced it with a used 18HP. There are some listed on Craigslist around here. Are you coming to the show in Arendstville in June?

    It seems no one has posted a link to get the calendars. If anyone wants one I had mine printed at staples. I only had to add my own hole. It cost me $15. I just uploaded the file.

    Ed, No confusion from what I read. It was good meeting you as well Saturday. The part is in on that Work Horse and it's ready to work at our cabin next season. Though I'll likely do some more work throughout the winter on that worker as well. I took the tractor back over to my mom's basement garage for the winter. I have just a little more deck work to do as it's just a hanging shell until I get acceptable caliber of parts installed on it for the shafts. It looks as good or better than it did when dad bought it back in May 1983.
