Model, Type, and Code on OHV Engines Powering Generators

Where can I locate the Model, Type, and Code numbers on the Briggs & Stratton OHV engine powering my generator?

Typically, the Model, Type and Code numbers are stamped into the OHV rocker cover. However, in some cases, the generator manufacturer installs a decorative chrome rocker cover OVER our cover. If your engine has a decorative cover, it may be necessary to remove it in order to locate the Model, Type and Code.

For additional assistance in locating the engine numbers, please visit our Briggs & Stratton Engine Identification FAQ. For an explanation of our numbering system, please visit our Numerical Designation System page.

Also, please be aware that the numbers found on the Engine Emissions LabelEngine Emission Label

can be confused with the engine Model, Type, and Code. Unfortunately, these numbers cannot be used to identify your engine.
