Re: Re-Power your Craftsman LT1000 Lawn Tractor for under $650.00
Nice guide, thanks! I actually went the other route and rebuilt my 20.5hp opposed briggs, threw the upper rod. Due to the shop not turning the upper lobe on the crank properly, the **** thing seized up on me and I scrapped the engine. IMO the later briggs opposed engines are junk, I work on riding mowers and constantly see these engines with either a thrown rod, or seized rod. The ones from the 80's seem rock solid, you cant kill them!
