My son has an old reel mower Sears and Roebuck with a B&S engine on it. He got it running yesterday but is not finding a lot of info on the motor. It is a Briggs & Stratton Model 6S. Looking for references for him. He is not having any luck on the web. I know sometimes it takes just the right combo of words.

What do you need to know about it?

Not a Briggs expert, but maybe specifics will be easier to answer.

Oops!  My son tells me it is a 5S, not a 6S. Anyway, he said it was made in 1952. Also he is looking for info on the mower which is either a Sears or a Dunlap (I'll see it on Sunday). Thanks again to all for the wealth of information you are providing.

5Ss are really nice, reliable engines.  I don't even have to use a pull rope to start my show engine.  It just kick it over using the sprocket on the shaft.   I can get it down to 90rpm (running 2-stroke oil 16:2 with gas/seafoam).  I let it idle at shows.
