Hi. My name is Daniel and I'm from Maryland. I have built two off road/trail mowers including a craftsman lt1000 and a older 80s Montgomery Wards. I have also built a ratrod mower and a faster racing style mower out of a dynamark.

I also enjoy working on restoring and sometimes customizing the older garden tractors. My small collection of garden tractors includes two Cub Cadets, a John Deere, a Massey Ferguson, an Allis chalmers and an Ariens.

I also am a hobby small engine mechanic. So I enjoy restoring and tinkering on all sorts of modern and vintage engines.

I look forward to hearing and learning from other members of this forum.

Welcome. What kind of vintage engines do you have?

I mostly collect 60s era engines which normally end up in my garden tractors. I have four old kohlers models k161, 241, and 321. I also have a Tecumseh hh100. I have two old vertical shaft Tecumseh engines on vintage rear engine riders 6 and 5 hp. I also have several small 2-3 hp Briggs engines which I can't recall the models right now. Needless to say I love the old cast iron engines. Especially the kohler k series. They will last forever if you take care of them.

I like cast iron engines. I collect mostly briggs and stratton model 5s's (made 48-57) which are pretty small and easy to store. But I also have some other older briggs engines, couple model 6s's and a WM. A lot of the ones I have are missing parts or beat up. I buy cheap stuff when I see it at swap meets. I was working on modifying a 5s, but I've been off that project for a few months. Older kohlers are pretty heavy duty, I haven't had too many but I've worked on one or two for people.

Yeah I like the smaller Briggs engines as well. I have a model 5s I just picked up a couple weeks ago. It seems to run well without any major work. I am actually keeping it as a display item in my bedroom because I think they are so neat. I can guarantee that these new aluminum block engines won't be around in 60 or so years like these old ones. They don't make them like they use to. My vintage 7 hp kohler k161 weighs more than my 23 hp kohler courage.

Yeah those old cast engines weigh a ton. I used to have a couple of wisconsin engines. A model AK and an ACN. Neither one started too easy and with the rope start I got tired of messing with them.
