Repower 10M6D with B&S questions

Hi, new member here.
I have a '68 10M6D that is totally original. Tecumseh H60-75003. I got it locally off ebay probably 10 years ago. Ran awful... cleaned and rebuilt carb and it had the wrong spark plug in it... after that it's pretty much just maintenance since then.
I am considering a repower and am eyeballing a Briggs engine at Small Engine Warehouse, model 12A113-0149 ( can't link it, newbie member!)

According to their info it bolts right on, although I have to get rid of the old studs and use longer bolts. No problem there. They do advise that a chute rod relocation is possible but it's not clear.
I am concerned about the chute rod relocation.. I've read plenty, seen the pics of various swaps on the old Ariens site ( great site, and the mod there linked me here) and seen that usually it can be done somehow but I'm wondering if anyone has done a swap with this particular engine or not? Any tips are appreciated.
The machine is running ok but if it's an easy swap I'd consider doing it mid-winter, if I have to futz around to make that chute work I'd probably wait until summer... don't need a storm to hit while it's apart.
I just think I'd rather repower it now and get the electric start on top of it... getting older and that Tecumseh can be a bear to pull start when it gets real cold.


Thank you and great site BTW.


Craig

welcome to the forum craig. if the briggs is an ohv you will have to do some work on the chute rod. even if its a flathead, depending on the carb shrouding, you still may have to make some changes to the rod location. its very easy to check tho.....less than half an hour to pull the tec and set the briggs on the short studs to see whats what and if needed put the tec back on.
