Briggs and Stratton Parts List & Repair Manual

How do I obtain/order literature (i.e. Operator's Manuals, Illustrated Parts List, etc.) and specifications for my engine?

All engine literature requests require the engine's STAMPED Model (6 characters), Type (4 digits) and Trim (2 characters) Numbers. For assistance with locating your engine numbers, please view our "Find Engine Model, Type, and Code" Video:


NOTE: For engines manufactured in 1965 or prior, please visit our Antique Engine Manuals page. They are available for download from our website. Please visit our page and enter your engine numbers into the "Enter Model Number" field.

To ensure a proper document search, please keep the following points in mind:

  • Engine numbers must be entered into the search field in the Model-Type-Trim format (example: 126T12-0137-B1) with no spaces before or after the characters. Numbers entered outside of this format will not be recognized by the system.

  • If your engine Model Number has only 5 characters (example 98902), a zero (0) must be added to the front of the number (098902) to satisfy the 6 character requirement and be recognized by the system.

  • If you are certain you have the correct Model-Type-Trim combination, and no document results are found, try using "99" as your Trim Number (example: 126T12-0137-99) This is especially true for engines manufactured before the 2000 model year.

  • Operator's Manuals and Illustrated Parts Lists for engines manufactured prior to 1965, or those that do not conform to the current five to six character Model Number standard (i.e. Models WM, ZZ, 5S, 8FB, 19, 23D, etc.) may be available via our Antique Engine Manuals FAQ.

  • Please be aware that predictive search results display only the first ten documents. To obtain literature, be certain to enter the complete engine Model-Type-Trim numbers.


A good source for engine specifications and technical servicing information would be a Briggs & Stratton Repair Manual. The correct Repair Manual for your model engine is often listed in your engine's Illustrated Parts List.

Repair Manuals are available for purchase through our website's Learning Resources section or locally from a Briggs & Stratton .

Other helpful maintenance and instructional guides (Small Engine Care & Repair #274041) can also be ordered through this area.


In addition, telephone orders can be placed at (800) 444-7774 (48 Contiguous United States orders only).
