How do I find Briggs & Stratton engine specifications?

When doing small engine repair and maintenance, you may need to find specific parts and specifications for your engine.

You will need to know your small engine model if you’ve asked:

  • What oil type does my engine need?
  • What is the valve clearance for my small engine?
  • What is the head bolt torque for my engine?
  • What type of gas should I put in my lawn mower?
  • What parts do I need for a horizontal or vertical shaft replacement?

To find basic small engine specs like torque, fuel & oil type, filter or cylinder info, check out specific product pages for your snow blowerlawn mowerpressure washer, or portable generator.

The complete source of specification information would be your engine's Repair Manual (Lookup Repair Manual by Model Number). Knowing your small engine model number also provides basic specifications such as valve settings, bore, stroke, etc.
