I have a Briggs 16 hp twin. Purchased as a backup engine. Believed when purchased it to be an 18 hp. Oooooooopss. It is missing a few parts, told when purchased it came off a log splitter (if I Remember correctly?) Anyway just want out what I have in it. Might consider some trades of Wheel Horse parts. Just send pm to ask. WILL ENTERTAIN OFFERS NOW AT THIS POINT!!!!!
My father in-law picked up this treasure at an auction a few years back.
It's been sitting since along the back fence row getting swallowed up by the weeds until we started clearing off the fences again & drug it to my shop.
I think he got caught up in the bidding & paid way to much for it, but I told him it's not a total loss & I could bring it back.....with a lot of parts!
Unless I can find a correct Briggs for it, I'll probably throw in a spare K181 I have on the shelf.
Currently in the process of tearing it down,my FIL will paint the tins while I do the mechanical work.
Check out the inspection window on the backside of the engine!
