I believe that is a Briggs & Stratton twin opposed cylinder L head engine.

That's a Briggs and Stratton and should be classified as an opposed twin.  The model can tell you that the engine is 42 cu. in. as well as some other info.  Type is used for specific parts ordering.  The code tells you the date built as well as the shift and line.  Yours was built on August 13, 1992.

Just to correct you guys: That is an engine, not a motor. Engines burn fuel, motors are electric powered. Lol . Something I was taught many, many years ago by my shop teacher.

When I asked the teacher why one of the major car makers was called General Motors, everyone laughed-except him. He had no good answer. I was a considered a wise guy from then on.

The manual section of this site has the repair/service manual for that engine. Look for B&S Twin L head Repair Manual. It explains what all the model, type and code#'s represent.
