Time For A New Engine

After running the original engine for a while, I decided it was time for an upgrade to go along with the pumps. The old engine didn't run that well. That could be fixed. However, the biggest problem was the lack of an alternator. It was that dual circuit mode that pretty much just maintains the battery. I had plans for an electro hydraulic valve (doesn't draw very much) and maybe headlights in the future. I also didn't know how I was going to mount the fuel tanks yet but a fuel pump would be useful. And more power never hurt anyone. 
Old engine was a 12.5hp single cylinder Briggs that had seen better days.

New engine was an 18.5hp single cylinder Briggs Intek engine with a 9 amp alternator and fuel pump. It says 16.5hp on the cover but according to the surplus place I purchased it from, it was marked that way for Husqvarna. Either way, it's better.
