  1. Got a flyer in the mail and briggs is gonna be showing off a new air cooled 31 horse motor at the gie in nashville.

    I assume it must be a dihatsu.

    This is pure speculation but it may be a Generac engine. Briggs may have made a deal with Generac Power Products when Briggs bought the home generator division from Generac.

    Smaller Briggs Vanguards are Mitsubishi engines,so thats also a possiblity.

    The engine sounds interesting! Although I have heard that generac has been having problems.

    The 31 HP Briggs Vanguard is already out and on 2002 equipment. Scag uses them on the Sabre Tooth Tiger. There are both gas and diesel forms. These are LIQUID COOLED though. Three cylinders too, not V-twins. As far as my limited knowledge goes these are the same thing as Daihatsu engines.

    The 31 at the show is a new air cooled 31
