Default carb options for briggs v twin

I am trying to replace the carb on my briggs 16 hp. it has a rev kit and a 23 hp cam. I am going to try to fab an intake to accept a honda 350 rancher carb. The stock carb is tired and hard to adjust. the engine was once on a pressure washer and likes to run at only one speed. anyone tried this or is there a ready made intake?

You could try and find a good used two barrel intake off a 20hp briggs and get the carb adapter that will let you run a makuni carb. A new two barrel intake is kinda pricey but its been a wh ile since i priced one. The hard part is finding a used intake. I'm always looking and never find one.

i started there but i got a used carb for 50 bucks and i think i can fabricate and adapter that lets me go from the stock intake to the new carb. a bent tube with a flange welded on it should do it. hp of the briggs and the honda engine are about the same so jetting should be good. it should be a better set up. supprised no one has done it. i have found some stuff on a web site for mud buggy engines but they cost more than i have in the whole cart

Its been done but by changing the intake. I've though about having a intake made. But I don't know anyone that can or will without charging a arm and leg.
The carb you have it basically a mukini, but the way Honda gets their power and how briggs does are different. This is what i have been told anyway, honda actually uses a smaller block but just draws all its power by fine tuning. Now you can take that with a grain of salt cause I'm no expert and have never meet a Honda expert. Now i would love ro see what you come up with because I am interested in seeing how it does.
Good luck and i can't wait to see gow it turns out. Post lots of pics, we like pics around here

I understand what your saying. They were designed for idle or 3500 rpm (lets say). The "bog" thru mid range was unexceptible for me. I went custom aluminum intake and twin Mikuni's. I would suggest a single carb, much easier throttle cable install. The other thing to consider is location, mount it to the engine valley/clutch side there going to be a heat issue, mount it to the fan side, you may have clearance problems. Maybe do a search for carberator upgrades in this section that will pull up other options. Keep us posted, there is alway's a better way

the carb i have is a kehnin i think is the spelling. I is the other jap carb for four wheelers and motor cycles. i think i can use the stock intake and build an adapter off of it. I will send some pics when it is done. Should get the carb this week. It will prob need rebuilding. I think i can make a couple of flanges and just bend some tube, then weld the thing up. shouldnt be too bad. They make intakes out of plastic for cars now days so i can see where thin wall tube will be worse. May have to use some heat wrap.

I posted a picture on here a while back of a thin wall tube intake that a grass mower built. go read heymow.com

Only thing with thin tube is make sure you support it or vibration can crack it. I think the major reason for me to run a motorcycle/etc carb is the driveability. You can go larger, though some say a MC carb can flow more in the same size especially a flat side. Most of the lawn carbs just can't throttle well, its because they only have an idle and main jet and are not very adjustable once you get away from stock. Just a high flow airbox and muffler messes them all up. Since the EPA makes them really difficult to play with on top of that, why mess with it.
