Briggs & Stratton Engine Identification
How do I identify a B & S engine?
The Model, Type, and Code numbers are stamped directly into the engine, usually these numbers are stamped directly into the blower housing, muffler heat shield, or a few inches above the spark plug. Depending on the style of engine shroud used, the engine numbers may be covered. It may be necessary to remove this shroud in order to locate the Model, Type, and Code.
