Briggs Engine Numbers

Recommended Posts

BLT

The engine is a 10HP Model 243431 type 0123-02. 16605121 is the S/N, but I think there is too many numbers. The very last number is plant 1 where all the cast irons were built. That model was used on the early Landlords.

Thanks

This is in a Big Ten that I am redoing and they have a external coil on it. Trying to decide wether to tear apart and replace coil or leave alone, ran well the way ir is.

thanks

Tom

Bob,

Could the engine type be 0123-021?

Or there's a scratch or something that looks like a 2. My early B-100 original engine is a 24431 type 0123-01 manufactured Nov 11,1967 in plant 1.

Then the rest of the numbers would translate to manufactured on Dec 5,1966 in plant 1.

And you reference the last group of numbers as a serial number. I didn't think the early Briggs engines had serial numbers, just date codes. And all engines made on that day in that plant had the same number. Am I mistaken?

Bill the base type/build number 123-01 could be modified slightly, -01,02,03 if I recall. Briggs used date codes as their s/n's. At the plant where I worked, two shifts would kick roughly 18,000 9 CID vertical shaft engines a day. Can you imagine how many stamping presses you'd need just to stamp individual serial numbers on each blower housing?

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
