I couldn't wait until morning...

Ended-up paying $35.

It's an Allis-Chalmers Tracker 7 (like raptor0192's).

1970 Briggs Flatty 170402 (I assume a 7Hp since it's a Tracker-7)





The machine has some surface rust...no rot that I can see.




The transmissions on these things are massive! It's literally the size of the transfer case on my silverado.

It has a 26" pie-hole:




beefy auger gearcase:


Even the belt cover is steel:



when buying an old-school briggs, the fuel tanks are always a concern...and this machine is no exception. Not sure if this beyond saving...

Glad she found a good home for the holidays !!

If you don't want to tumble it in sand and or pebbles and there isn't a hole in it you can always Kreem it. Kreem the inside, paint the outside and it's good as new.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

I've been wanting to tear into an old Briggs for a long time...



...and not soon after:


There was a pile of seed husks in the carb intake...


...which probably explains the burnt seeds on the piston
