What is it?

Recommended Posts

This little compressor is chained to the old Briggs with bicycle sprockets it looks like. The name plate for the compressor says "Binks Mfg. Chicago" and "Type SP 1/4" but I think the engine has been a home adaptation. I can't find anything on the engine except "22" cast into the block. Is this anyting like the PTO driven compressor offered at one time? With the pulley drive I'm sure it can be adapted to work with the tiller drive. Does anyone have an interest in the old Briggs engine?

This Briggs & Stratton engine is a model 5S which is a 1 horse power or a model 6S which was a 1 1/2 hp. The engine model tag was on a tin cover around the cylinder fins on the back of the engine.This engine was made in the late 1940's or early 1950's. I have several of these engines, one on a Planet Jr Tuffty two wheel walking tractor. Karl

      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.
