How to find Briggs and Stratton Model, Type, Code

HOW TO FIND BRIGGS & STRATTON ENGINE MODEL, TYPE AND CODE

The Model, Type, and Code numbers, stamped directly into the engine, are used to identify Briggs & Stratton engines. Engines used in lawnmower applications usually have these numbers 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.

Please view Briggs & Stratton “Find Briggs & Stratton engine Model, Type, and Code” Video:

Many horizontal shaft, overhead valve engines have these numbers stamped into the OHV rocker cover. However, on certain overhead valve powered generators, the equipment manufacturer installs a decorative chrome rocker cover OVER Briggs & Stratton cover. If Briggs & Stratton engine has a decorative cover, it may be necessary to remove it in order to locate the Model, Type, and Code.
