 I need some help from you David Bradley guys. I just picked up a Sears 500 Briggs NP, and I would like to know what it was used on. The PTO end of the crankshaft is very strange, and I looked up the type no. in my Briggs book, and found a crankshaft part no. for it, but it was only used on just this type no., so this was biult for a very specific application. I doubt this was used on a DB walk behind, as it doesn't have a mechanicle governor, but since it is a Sears engine, I figure it was used on a DB something? The engine was manufactured in 1949 if this helps any. I appreciate any info.

I can't help you on the application, but that engine has one old spark plug on it!  I love that brass thumb nut.

We will probally never be able to tell for sure what it went to, as Sear sold about a millon differnt items in the catalogs, that engine could have gone on. The part that bolted to the engine looks like the back side of a gear reducer case. It could have fit a pump, a genset, a tiller, or any number of farm items. I can say that it never went to a DB tractor. Looks to be a nice complete engine, i'm sure it could be fitted on any cool project.

I called a fellow Briggs lover of mine, and he told me exactley what this NP was used on. It was used on a Sears reel mower, that was biult for them by Yard-Man. He even sent me a picture of his. Briggs biult this engine for them, and set it up so it to be used with the 3 to 1 Yard-Man built gear reduction. Here is a picture of my friends NP. :thumbs:
