Go to look at this Briggs this afternoon, I'm limited on knowledge on these older Briggs but the fella says its a 1946 7hp. I'm think its possibly a model a or z which makes it from 1-4hp from what I've read but again I don't know.Unfortunately I don't have the numbers off of it. I have always wanted and older briggs engine.

I would say its either a Z or a ZZ. On a Z, the carb inlet will be 3/4". On a ZZ, it will be 1". I think the ZZ was rated up to 6HP. An A doesn't have the removable output plate.

Thanks for the info DougT, Those little details like that is what I don't know to point me in the right direction. I have been searching this morning I found a video of 47 ZZ and it looks a lot like the one im wanting to buy.  Im not exactly sure what you mean by removable output plate?

In your last pic of the pulley and compressor you can see 3 of the 4 bolts that hold it where the crank comes through. If you look at an A from that side, the block is cast solid. There isn't a removable piece there. I think the Z/ZZ was the only ones to change to a tin shroud too.

Looks good, the published hp rating is low, but believe me they have plenty of "snot", I run my saw rig with a 1947 Z.

Here it is got home late last night, its a 1946 ZZ  7hp from what he the fella said and I found on a few websites, not 100% sure on the hp part I read that the ZZ ranges from 6.2 to 7.7 hp. It started first pull no smoke ran great will be perfect for my tiller resto project.
