If you have model and type of engine, you can download parts list from Briggs and Stratton web site. As far as rebuilding, how far is it being taken down? From parts decription, it looks lke a bore job and valve grind. Or was bore .020 over already?

Hi, While it is apart I would carefully look at the Camshaft where the ignition points push rod rubs. If it shows ANY wear on the shoulder where the pushrod contacts it, I would replace it. This throws the timing off. If you replace a camshaft, always replace the lifters also. Al Eden
