Repower old Equipment
Snapper Rear Engine Rider Category
Available replacement parts listed below, please click product number to view more information about each replacement part.
Original Model: Various Models
The 8hp Briggs engines had a 3/4" threaded muffler port, the 9hp engines on up have 1" muffler ports, except OHV models which do not have internal threads.
The Briggs OHV 21**** series engines will replace an L-Head Briggs even if the tank is behind the seat.
If you buy an OHV engine to replace a L-Head engine, you will need to buy a muffler also, which may require you to remove the back right post for the normal muffler style to fit. The BS-Muffler-38 works well if you use a bagger.
The throttle linkage on the OHV Briggs engines run horizontally instead of vertically, you may have to get a longer cable for this to work correctly.
If you use a bagger, our 219807-0001-Z1 Kit (Engine, Muffler (BS-Muffler-38), & Exhaust Gasket) will work very well.
If you have the fuel tank about the left rear wheel, our TE-Tank-34186 will fit inside the bracket and work just fine.
