Anyone know of a source for points and condenser for 14 HP Briggs? All my local parts searching has been dead ends.

Model 320421-0132-01

 

Thanks, BILL

LOL! I at least can verify that the numbers I found ( took over an hour) match the numbers you have Ben. :D It was a fun hunt for the numbers though ! :rolling:

I ought to hire you then.  :thumbs:

 

Actually, just between the wall and you, I cheat since I have a not-so-intuitive-but-it-works-for-my-brain quick cross reference for many of the old engines.

I like a good challenge lol. I just noticed the Condenser # I found is a 298060 is it still the same as your 298160?

My fingers must have been high on something, since 298060 is 100% the correct one.  I like swapping numbers, it messes everyone up.  :mad2:

 

You're hired.  You start Monday.

 How do I go about ordering the parts?

   I have the day off and since this is for my mowing tractor, and the grass is already too long, I'm going to make one last attempt to find the parts locally (wishful thinking).

 

Thanks, again, for the information.

 

BILL

I ended up finding the parts at Napa. Never would have thought to try looking there if it hadn't been for looking in my ''GTTalk notebook.'' Someone,a couple years ago, had made a post about finding points at Napa so I thought I'd give it a try. Planning on installing the parts tomorrow. Hopefully this will cure the problem.

Took me a while to get a follow up posted... Got the points and condenser installed. I had some problem setting the point gap. My guage that I normally use had gotten wet and the number sizes were totally unreadable. I have other guages, but this is the tractor I use at my mom's place, so I took a guess on which was the right one to use. I checked my choice with another guage when I got home and found that my "guess" was one size under. It was a little sloppy of a fit, so I think I'm pretty close to being right.

Put everything back together and It started on the first pull. :dancingbanana:

   The battery went dead on this tractor, several years ago, so I did the "Sears emergency start" by taking off the flywheel cover and doing the rope start thing. It almost always started on the first pull, so I have been starting it that way ever since. (It actually starts quicker than it ever did using the starter)!
