I picked up an engine from Michigan a few months back and after looking at the shroud's code I was stumped ?After looking at wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Briggs_%26_Stratton#Cast_iron_modelsI learned they made them all the way up to 1991 OOIn some forum way back I read that they only made these engines until March..Mine is326437-2528-01 Code 91030414 Code (Year 91 Month 03 Day 04 Assembly Line 14)Which means it's one of the LAST ever made ?sm04let me know what you guys think or know.

I have an 2005 international Briggs and Stratton buyers guide and in it are 10 & 16 HP CI engines being produced. Their latest Asian guide has none. You S/N could be an import as the original plant was torn down quite sometime ago. Also the assembly could be foreign as the CI's came off of line 1 in Milwaukee, the original plant.

This one is a 2001 made in China. Runs like a top. with 13 hours on it. 01102948

This one is a 1992 made in China to I believe. I think that is what the 48 plant destination number is.

I bought them both brand new from Small Engine Warehouse. I doubt they have anymore. The last one I bought from them was atleast 7 or 8 years ago. I still have a NOS 10hp (243431)that I have been trying to get rid of for awhile. May put it in a B 10 or something but I don`t have any room for another tractor.

I have been unable to locate a listing for the Briggs factory codes online. My 1989 10hp in the B-210 has a "14" factory code. Is this an indonesian engine or a USA engine?

Line numbers got scattered when Briggs started expanding plants. China plant started I believe in the mid to late 80's I think because of EPA's ruling on foundries.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
