Default Briggs Model K or Model Q with Clutch Question

Hi, were wondering if anyone knows the base mounting bolt pattern of a Briggs model Q engine?

We have an old road roller that is missing its engine & it was either a Briggs Model K or Model Q engine. See thread at; https://www.smokstak.com/forum/showthread.php?t=145515

It looks like there are two sets of holes to mount an engine on the roller; one with hole centers that are 5-3/4 wide in the back, 5-3/4 wide in the front & 10 long. There is another pattern that is 5-3/4 wide in the back, 6-1/4 wide in the front & 10-3/8 long. See first picture below.


Any help is appreciated as wed like to get the correct engine back on this roller.

-Nick

Qs and Ks have a very close if not I he same bolt pattern. On a lot of the mower literature I have from the 30s the catalog will list as it having the current line of engines, but the picture will show an older model probably because its much easyier to change the letter of the model than it is to have a new picture made showing the current engine.

Thanks for posting & for the info, I appreciate it.

I just got base bolt pattern dimensions off a Briggs Model K & it measures 10-5/8 long x 6-1/2 wide (one side) & 6-1/4 wide (other side). It looks like the bolt patterns vary about .

From the bolt pattern Steve posted, it looks like it would have originally had a Briggs Q on it.


Are there many Briggs Model Qs around with the built-in clutch like shown in the pics above?

Thanks again, -Nick

Thank you for spending the time and effort to make this one of a kind roller complete again. There is nothing more painful than to see a wonderful piece of American machinery ruined by a cheap foreign engine. I hope you are able to find the correct engine for your machine. A Briggs collector somewhere likely has exactly what you are looking for, you just have to find it! Looks like you have a lot of work ahead of you, but at least most of the machine is present. What a treat it would be to hear that little cast iron Briggs putting away as you put it in gear and start rolling!

Chris
