Thanks. Yea the OHVs are pretty tough, I haven't abused mine too hard only because it has a helicoil. But soon as I change the head, look out. The only time (besides online) I've ever heard of a blown OHV was my friends
14.5 HP. Then again I've never had a 12.5 that was not a powerbuilt. B&S put a weaker connecting rod into the powerbuilt for some reason, probably for cheaper manufacturing. But for that reason I try to stay away from the
powerbuilts as much as I can. I haven't had any experience with the normal 12.5 so I guess my opinion only applys to powerbuilts. And yes, FF does abuse his pretty hard.

I have a fleet of OHVs, I like them allot better than the flat heads for power and ease of working on. I have not seen a 12.5 OHV of that vintage either, only the flat heads. I have a newer intek style one, but all the 12.5s I had were flattys.

I know right. I didn't even know 12.5 OHVs existed until now, except on a tecumseh.

Same reason I like the OHVs. Strong, powerful, easy repairs (not that flattys aren't), and of course, they sound better (no offense to the flatty fanatics).

Yea that is interesting. And yes they are very easy to work on. The only real difference between the two are the valves. Just be sure to check and/or adjust them at least once a year. (Top valve is .004 and bottom is .005). A
stack would look pretty cool on it. I was going to put 1 on mine until someone said something about if it flips it could damage the head.

How about putting a little flap on the top of the stack like the old tractors have... just an idea.

Pretty cool! It looks when you steer it the stack might be in the way... or am I just seeing things.

Nice work! With some good reinforcing the frame will be pretty solid. What is the port on the top right of the electrical panel?

Awesome. Looks just like my murray. Rusty, dirty, and torn to bits and pieces lol. You'll definitely need frame reinforcements, those murray frames are weak as crap. My brother cracked and broke his frame in several places. Had to brace them until we can get them welded. If candle wax and the torch doesn't work on the stuck tranny pulley then you have to get a new input shaft. Gotta get a new one for my murray.

"WD40 and impact". Sounds just like me lol.

I'm gonna try to bolt 2 steel plates on the bottom and 1 on the top in the back. If it doesn't do the job, well it's back to square one.

my input shaft is shot.

Box steel for reinforcing looks good. How about making a subframe to go inside the stock frame? That would be slightly less complicated but would achieve the same result.
