Thank you, Chuck !!!!!!

 

Reading through that information, it appears some of that info applies to some other engine models as well.

 

That is the kind of information I was seeking.

 

Thanks again for sharing it with us!

Thank you thank you thank you Chuck!

 

That confirms two things, that the information does exist "somewhere" and that the old rep I knew was right on his money about the numbers varying according to different series engines. 

 

Now, I wonder where we find the info out for other models?

My 1959 Engine price list does not show any of that info,One thing that i do not understand is  is how a model 141302 type 500529 put out 4.50 hp and a 143302 type 502549 put out 5.75 hp

This came off E bay with a early 50`s Briggs specification catalog,Over the years I have seen lots of late 50`s stuff that probably didn`t even sell on E bay.They must have sent a new sheet out with every new model year like Ben said you need to know different year,type or serial to use this.Example I have a parts manual from the early 50`s that have  models 140 141 142 143 144 145 146 147 According to the list I posted dated 1963 the 144 and 145 would be Sonaduct engines wich they were not.

well what you have to think on is the fact that these engines were built to replace the cast iron model 14, which is a 5hp. By changing the carb jet and the rpms, you can get a whole range of different power. The 59 140302 was listed as 5.75, by cranking up the rpms a couple 100, you got a full 6hp. you get the same thing going down, to the point of where you would have to make a jet change to get down to that bottom hp.
