How To Locate Your Push Mower Engine Model Number

Step 1: Confirm Correct Model Number

Does your model number look like the image below? The first 10-characters (i.e., model and type) stamped on your engine will look like this: 

Briggs & Stratton Engine Model Number

Please Note: If the model & type numbers on your Briggs & Stratton engine are only 9 characters, please enter a 0 (zero) at the beginning of the model number.

Does the number you have look like this? If not, locate the correct number by following instructions in Step 2.

Step 2: Locate the Model Number

The engine model number is generally a number stamped into metal directly on your engine.

Some push mower engines come with a cover or "shroud". It should be noted that these covers come in a variety of colors, sizes and shapes. Regardless of your cover, the engine model number will be in one of 3 locations:
