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
As shown in the Where to Find Your Lawn Mower Engine Model Number video below, 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:
Above the spark plug
Tools you may need:
1/4" or 5/16" socket or screwdriver
On the front of engine
Stamped on metal plate in between the overhead valve cover (OHV) and the air filter.
Above the muffler
Stamped on the sheet metal above the muffler, which can be on the right or left side of the engine.
