Briggs and Stratton engines are identified with a MODEL, TYPE and CODE number system and take the form of the example below.
The numbers can be in a variety of locations depending upon the engine but are generally to be found either:-
|Stamped into the front, top or side of the main cowling.
These sometimes need corrosion removed or plastic
cowlings lifted slightly or air filter removed to see.
|Stamped into a plate over the exhaust or a bracket
in front of the carburettor.
|Etched into the crankcase side behind the carburettor
or behind the exhaust.
|Etched or stamped into the edge of a rocker cover.
These sometimes need corrosion cleaning off to see.
|Etched into an aluminium plate riveted to the cowling.
These can sometime be forced off. If this has happened,
there will be two small pulled out rivet holes.
|Etched into the crankcase at the rear.
|Etched into the plastic fuel tank (Quantum Mk1 Model 100708)
