Is my engine a cast iron engine?

Presently, Briggs and Stratton engines use an aluminum engine block. The following engine models have a cast iron sleeve in the cylinder bore:
  • Vanguard
  • I/C
  • Industrial Plus
  • Diamond Plus
  • Intek Edge
  • Intek Pro
  • ELS (Extended Life Series)
  • 3LC (Three Cylinder Liquid Cooled)
  • Animal
  • Europa

However, determining the type of block or cylinder bore would ultimately depend on the engine Model, Type, and Code. Please visit Identify Your Model Number for assistance in locating the engine's numbers.
