It's not a Vanguard, it's an I/C. I think they are a horizontally opposed twin.
Yep. I wonder if the flywheel pattern is the same, if so I'll bet Jim at Jim's Repair could fix someone up with the knowledge and/or parts to make it work. That guy knows his stuff on Briggs swaps.

Interesting, looks like a functional PTO.

Who recently got the Briggs transplant with no front PTO? This shows it can be done.
That would be me, I have the very same motor on 446 I picked up last month.

The problem with mine is that the prior owner who repowered it didn't shorten the main shaft and stuck the motor too far forward, no room for a clutch and no room for the air cleaner to clear the hood. Another issue mine has is the homemade pump mount isn't all right and the spider joint is in bad shape.

I'm getting ready to take the Briggs off mine and replace it with a Kohler Magnum 20hp, standard Kohler pump mounts will work and the front flywheel will accept the standard PTO clutch.

Honestly, it looks like an EZ adjust. I see the lever on the bottom..?????

(Look at that I just became a Junkie!....never thought I'd be shouting that :clap: )
Does look like a standard clutch but I have to question how they mounted it as at least on mine, the only mounts are two small screws that hold the screen cover in place. I looked at the new Vanguard repower kits and they uses a electric clutch (and I could not afford the price).

Different versions of IC Twin Briggs had extended crankshafts in the front to handle PTO attachement or pulleys so perhaps that is what he has?
