Briggs & Stratton has been making air-cooled gasoline engines for outdoor power equipment since 1908. All Briggs & Stratton engines and equipment have a 20-digit model number that is necessary if you want to order replacement parts, maintenance parts or accessories.

Locate a Briggs & Stratton model number on the engine itself. Briggs & Stratton etches the 20-digit model number on its engines, usually near the air shroud--the part of the engine that blows heat away from the engine and draws air in to cool it. Since Briggs & Stratton makes a wide variety of engines, and the air shroud size and location varies depending on type of engine, a number of online resources exist that show photos or drawings of all engine types and the location of the model number and air shroud. Some--like Jacks Small Engines--show pictures of every type of engine so you can scroll through and locate yours; others ask you to identify the type of engine first and then offer you options.
Use resources on the Briggs & Stratton web site to find the model number for your Briggs & Stratton engine. The company's owner support web site offers you a wealth of resources to find engine model numbers, engine types and parts, including a video showing you how to find your engine model number. The site features owner's manuals--with model numbers--for every engine the company has ever made, including antique engines that date to the company's earliest days.
Ask the dealer who sold you the engine--or any nearby Briggs & Stratton dealer--to find your engine's model number. The dealer who sold you the engine will not only be familiar with Briggs & Stratton's range of products, but he may also have a record of your sale, which would likely feature your engine's model number. Briggs & Stratton dealers also have access to complete model listings for all products, so any certified dealer could help you find the model number to your engine.
