Default Briggs and Stratton 16 HP OHV engine

I've inherited a Sears lawn tractor with a 16 HP OHV B&S engine. Seems the
engine was run without oil and is shot/seized.

I need a source of a new/rebuilt/use engine for this machine. Also would
like info on rebuilt kits for this engine. I have lots of time but little
money so ...

Any help would be appreciated.

BTW Sears wants more for a new engine then they are selling the entire
tractor.

Thanks,

Went there early on, sent emails even made phone calls. All responses
directed me to their 'dealer' net work. No one I spoke with had any
interest other than trying to sell me a new engine. Interesting point I can
purchase a brand new lawn tractor for less than they want for just the
engine.

What about a short-block? Did you price one? Did you check on a new engine
from Northern Tool
http://www.northerntool.com/engines/?CMID=osclrp3116ln

What is the model # ? I have a new 14HP V-twin Briggs & Stratton VanGuard
engine
sitting in a box in my garage, Model 294447 Type 1201-A1 4665, electric
start, 1" horiz. shaft.
I bought it on Ebay on impulse at a good price and have no real use for it
(Oh well!). I always
thought it would make a good go-kart engine (kinda big & heavy tho).

I located any number of dealers from both B&S web site and other sources.
So far all want to sell me a new engine ( I can buy a new engine for most
cars for less). Still a few were honest enough to point out I could buy a
new tractor for less.

Actually yes I can buy a car engine for less. While this is much better
than anything I've found so far it is still more than I think is either fair
or justified. (I've found new lawn tractors for not much more)

No problem.

Actually yes I can buy a car engine for less.

Those are more common, and you ain't buying a -new- car engine for that
cheap.

While this is much better
than anything I've found so far it is still more than I think is either
fair or justified. (I've found new lawn tractors for not much more)

Where can you buy a completely new lawn tractor for $600?

Are you absolutely sure your engine is seized due to running with no
oil?
The oil could have been drained and the motor merely needs a little TLC
to revive it.

Remove all the spark plugs and spray some WD-40 or similar penetrant
into cylinder thru spark plug holes. Let it sit a few minutes and try
to turn it over. The piston rings could merely be rusted to the
cylinder walls due to non-use. This is a common problem for engines
that have sit a while.

Anyway, if you get it to turn over this way (it won't start without
spark plugs), fill the resevoir with oil, put the spark plugs back in,
and then try to start it.

Good Luck!
