September of 1934 to Janurary of 1948
If you post a serial number I can tell you month and year.
Your local auto parts store will more than likely be able to get points, condensor, and a carbeurator kit for it. If it needs a coil you will have to find a used one. Thats is a very kewell engine! Good Luck with it!

Very Nice old BR6! It looks quite complete, other than the air filter assembly. I like the hand crank, and I always thought the cast iron shroud was really cool. The only thing I don't like is how heavy those monsters are! I hope you have a strong back! For info you can go to the ASECC website.

Very COOOOOLL engine you picked up. I have never seen one with the cast shroud and head like that before. Good Luck on the rebuild..
