Ryan bought a 6s at the local flea market, Dad screwed up and caused the head some damage which makes it pretty much unusable.

If anyone has an extra, shoot me a PM please. Thanks.

I think there are less cooling fins, but it will bolt on from what I understand.

Well, I will see if one of them 5s I have is missing some parts ( I am sure one of them is) and see about getting you a new head to bolt onto those shoulders of yours to keep those little fellas on those shoulders quiet lol.

I'll look around too, I bought a couple last year in hopes that they were Clintons, they turned out to be Briggs when I got there, but the price was right, so I brought them home. I'm not sure if they 5s' or 6s', but I'll check in a little bit.


  • MH81 and wvbuzzmaster have said thanks

Both the ones that I picked up are model 5S and both have the heads on them and appear to be intact.

OK, I will let Ryan know...
Thanks to everyone who replied or spent a few minutes looking
Come to find out, it has the wrong tins and no gov too....
I guess "What do you expect for a $20 flea market engine?" Is in order :wallbanging:

I was hoping he had found himself a good little project engine, but the lesson on getting taken at the flea mkt was worth a few bucks... And who's to say I wouldn't have said OK myself at that $ tag?

Someday, I hope he can hear it run so it isn't a total loss for him, but I would be hard pressed to let him put it in service without a gov setup of some kind. (Safety first)
