See if it works better by partially choking it- if so you may need
to clean the carb out.

there was a club in the Fryeburg area, not sure if they're still going or not.
We're pulling in Milton NH this weekend at Mi-Te-Joe's campground (Sat. at 9:30)
Not too far from Rochester NH area.

The first two digits of the model number is your CID.  Horsepower rating isn't something that's consistent.  Sears may have put 12-1/2 HP where Lowes only put a 12 hp sticker for the EXACT motor.
This is why Briggs got in trouble.
There is a thread here somewhere that explains the numbering system for the Briggs engines.

That's what I thunk.  A fellow puller has a 15 in his Cub, was wondering if it's worth
playing with or not.  I won quite a few events the last 2 years with an 18,
good stout engine.  Takes very little to make them sing.

If you use the stock crank and pistons you will have to get the stock
length rods.
6  Engine Help / Kohler Engines / Magnum twin question on: August 25, 2014, 04:09:43 PM
What's the difference between the 15,16,17 and 18 HP Magnums?
Mostly found in Cubs. I can't find much info on the lower hp engines.
Just wondering if they cut the throttle back like the 18 Commands,
or went further.
7  Engine Help / Briggs Flathead / Re: opposed bog on: August 06, 2014, 06:38:33 PM
they call them a filter adapter, if you ask for a velocity stack the person
you talk to might get confused.  happened to me the first time I
ordered one.

E.C. has a velocity stack for the oppys that doesn't plug the vents off.  Takes
the 2 7/16 K&N filter.
10  Engine Help / Briggs Flathead / Re: isky cam on: July 22, 2014, 03:46:25 PM
maybe a little more if you spin it fast enough
11  Engine Help / Briggs Flathead / Re: unkown briggs opposed twin on: June 21, 2014, 06:21:13 AM
There will be a bunch of material removed in line with the rod journals
for clearance if it's the 46 long stroke block.  Need room to clear
the angled rods.

I bet you can just take the #s off the bearings and go to a bearing
supply company- those old tractors didn't use anything special for the
most part. Seals are available at any auto parts store, use goop
for gaskets.
13  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: port and polish on: February 19, 2014, 05:37:23 PM
I just use my pocket knife for all my port work.
me too.  we can't do a full port job, but skinning a little of the flash
don't hurt. 
14  Engine Help / Kohler Engines / Re: Ch25s v-twin cam ? on: January 31, 2014, 07:28:25 PM
As far as I know the 25 and 30 are the same, the 27 has the same lift and duration
but the lode centers are 112 deg. whereas the rest are 100 or so.  This is according
to Tyler at MWSC.  By the way, the rest of the twins are the same as the 25.
15  Engine Help / Briggs Flathead / Re: 16 hp twin question on: December 13, 2013, 05:06:04 PM
What is the difference between the vertical and horizontal, other than the PTO length?
I turned a 46 pressure lube into a horizontal this year and ran it all summer in a twin engine
puller with 0 issues. On the rear engine I had the crank cut off and keyed to accept
my coupler setup.  Probably cheaper to get a crank, but if you can't find one you could
make it.
