After purchasing equipment powered by a Briggs and Stratton engine, it is a good idea to record your model number, once identified, in your operator’s manual or in your personalized account on BriggsandStratton.com for future reference.
Knowing the model, type and code number of your Briggs and Stratton engine, will make it easy to order generator, pressure washer and lawn mower maintenance or service parts and ensure that you purchased the right tune-up kit.
The process is fairly straight forward and only varies slightly from one product to another. The model numbers are always etched or stamped into a metal part, so they cannot be erased or worn off. Most mowers for example, have the numbers embossed on a metal plate extending over the top of the muffler.
