    Default vintage briggs engine

    Does anyone know where to buy a rebuilt 1960's briggs 5-8hp engine. I have a speedex tractor and would like to have a nice reconditioned motor for my restoration project.

    Getting a vintage engine may be a problem. You can find new re-power options in a number of places on the 'net.

    Here is just one option... Small Engine - Replacement Engines - Engine Kit - Repower

    If you want to stay vintage there's always e-bay or craig's list. The other option is to recondition the motor you have.

    By-the-way... What are you restoring?
    From now on I will only buy cars that are a silver/grey color. Then I can make all body repairs with Duct Tape.

    1. Go to an antique tractor show and mention what you are looking for to a few folks.

    2. Put an engine wanted ad on craigslist.com. It's free.

    3. Do a want it now, or whatever they call it on ebay.

    4. Go to a small engine shop that has been around for a long time. Chances are they have more than a few old B&S rotting away. They could probably even get one running for you.
