Unfortunately, there is no single manual for this. It depends entirely on what crankshaft the OEM requested be used in the engine. You need to find out the diameter of the crankshaft and any threading to it, direction of the threading, etc. From there, a replacement can usually be found pretty easily. That or contact Briggs customer support (number in your owners manual) with the Model, Type and Code numbers off the engine. From this information they can see how the engine was outfitted for that OEM. Horsepower tells them nothing as those ratings and stickers are often replaced by the OEM and often NOT the information Briggs sends out on the engine.

There should be no reason why not, Just keep in mind of the bolt pattern and measurements as well as you may have to make a few altercations for cables but if shafts match you should be good to go! I hope this helps.

How do I wire a 18hp Briggs & Stratton engine to a craftsman GT5000 lawn mower


I dont have all your anwers. In my experience, Kohler frequently has wires to start, run and stop the engine. They also frequently have a low oil and/or high heat control (engine shut down). Also expect a wire from the charging system. On your tractor, you probably have similar plus 'operator presence' wires. These wires require to you to be sitting in the seat for the machine to operate - a seat switch for example. On my tractor, I can depress the 'brake' (which isnt exactly a brake in fact) and the engine will run when I dismount. However, if the mower is engaged, no matter what, if I get off the tractor, the engine shuts down.

You will have to determine what every wire is for and connect it properly. You may lose some engine 'functionality' or tractor safety features. It is never easy to put a Ford starter on a Chevy. Good luck with your project.

I have a craftsman gt5000 26hp 54" deck. I removed the cutting deck cleaned and replaced blades then when i put it all together the belt wont fit. Theres a belt tensioner rod that i disengaged but...


Belts do not change length. You are doing something wrong with the routing. Maybe the tensioner goes on the other side of the belt or the belt should be routed around the other side of both the tensioner & idler.

Where is the fuel filter located on a craftsman gt5000?I want to change it, but don't want to screw it up.... I do not have a manual for this rider.


If the fuel filter is not clogged and stopping fuel from going to the carburetor then leave it installed until it is full of particulates and restricting fuel flow.
