    I noticed this a while back and just saw it again about 10 minutes ago on the home page after signing in. I was able to look up parts just the same as always.
    The first time I saw it, I thought the...

    Way to go Ed. You may be done by the time you read this, but likely the only thing you will do is remount the brake parts to the tranny. Connecting the rod or flat linkage part from the pedal shaft...

    Wait guys! This is a gear drive 214 according to the thread header and what Ed mentioned. It has more of a flat pulley that is called a drum, and a circular band with friction material as the brake....

    Good news about the clutch adapter. SEW had it covered. Still curious about the driveshaft adapter length. No doubt they have sold many Briggs kits for 318 and 420 tractors with B and P engines....

    BTW, if you don't mind telling, where were you able to find new parts for the HH100? I haven't looked for a long time but thought they would be very hard to get, and probably nobody would offer after...

    As I recall, the JD SM and the old Tecumseh manual shows a picture of the rod with the extra hole in it and says do not use in horizontal shaft engine. When my '68 112 HH100 got really tired, I was...

    I purchased this repower kit from Jim's Tractor. The driveshaft adapter was already installed by him. I took measurements with it bolted to the engine. I have a note that the flywheel end of the...

    BTW, John Lang sells the foam firewall insulation kit and an adapter (unpainted area in photo) to rivet to your firewall to allow for the smaller B&S...

    OK, the adapter I received is 4.870 long. If yours is a lot shorter, possibly they shipped the wrong one. With the engine sitting in the proper spot for pulley alignment, the driveshaft goes nearly...

    Same trade I did on my 420. Give me a few minutes to check the O.A.L of the adapter that I received from a different supplier.

    What engine did you select for the repower, and what engine did you remove? (B or P series Onan?)
    Only 9/16" engagement would not be a good idea, just as you suspect.
    I would want the belt pulley...

    Haven't had one of those for a while, but think you need to remove the rubber sleeve/pad and slide it out that way. Last time I recall removing the fender pan on a '73-'74 I just let the pedal hang...

    This is just my opinion, nothing I've found in writing anywhere. The less the hubs can slide back and forth on the splines, the less wear there will be on the hub splines. Most of the wear will be on...

    Gabby, looking back, you mentioned this 318 is a 1983 model, so the original spindles would be of the 1.000" era. (s/n 222001-372595) The bushing inside dia. listed in JD Parts is 1.005". Do you have...

    If cleaning all electrical connections does not help the hard start condition, next step would be to check and reset as necessary the rocker arm clearances to factory spec. Check the rocker arm studs...

    If you are handy with wrenching on these tractors, that could be a good project for not a lot more money. That is if the rest of the tractor is good, has a decent mower deck, (good gear box and drive...

    This is a 317, but a 140 would look the same. Not sure which rear rims or tires you may have.

    Sleeve hitch mounted and lift rod attached. 5/8" pin long enough to go through plow hitch.

    Sounds like you have the patience to do it right. Everything above the factory bend or curve should be straight, at least as I think about it. Other kinks or bends would not be good for strength, and...

    Tim, the rod isn't exactly straight to begin with. Been a while since I had one in my hand but think it has maybe two curves that somewhat match the contour of the lift handle or tube. It no doubt...

    I think you've got it Rob. I had the same problem (wear) on my 317. I put a zip tie on the new one to make sure the new on didn't get rubbed. Reminds me that I should look at it again to see if it is...

    Getting back to the origin of this thread, I did find a somewhat unflattering photo of my 1980 317. Got it in Dec. of '90 and rebuilt the engine and a complete paint job in early '91. Been a worker...

    These pics are from some parts of my 317 with the KT17 Series I that may be of interest to N2. Guess I've never taken a picture of the dipstick because it has not needed replacement yet. lol Hope...

    This may or may not be your problem, but something to check. I did a Briggs repower on a 420 last year. I had been instructed to grind off the locating nubs on the back of the coil that would be used...

    The 3 speed tranny used in the 60, 70, and 100 does have an outboard seal that can be r&r'ed while still in the tractor. It has bushings rather than sealed ball bearings in the axle housings that get...
