It's for the Huski Gardener Walkbehinds

Wouldn't consider this engine rare at all.....

 While it may not be rare, at $59 its a steal! Its either a Briggs model A or B, and if I was within 100mi of it, I would already be there cash in hand! :thumbs:

I'm with you.  I bet Fastenal could move it from WA to TX for about $90. :D

 Sounds like you have something against the old gear reduction engines Matt.  :bigrofl:  They powered many of the old walk behinds, and that sure is a very clean, and complete old example.

The engine for the gardener was a BR6. A model B with 6:1 gear reduction.

Yeah, it seems like every nice running old motor - or even NOS motors for that matter - are all gear reduction. I suppose for an old walk behind it's ideal. For anything else its basically a smelly paperweight. Lol
