I picked up an Allis B12 (my avatar at the moment) over the summer and I've decided that I want to make this one nice.  Before I can do that, I have to get it running.  This tractor is all original so the briggs is original.  I know briggs is great for stamping the engine numbers in the tin and they can be hard to locate at times.  I have been all over this engine and have yet to locate any numbers.  Anyone that has one of these tractors with the original engine, can you tell me where I might find these numbers?  This thing has hi/lo tranny so I really want to spruce it up and use/show it.  I ave a mower deck, snow plow and garden plow for it so I may even try it out at a plow day.

It should be on the carb side of the blower shroud down towards the bottom. It may be just below the frame and real hard to see. At least that is where it is on the one I just parted out.

Ok, I was starting to think it might be in that area and you just convinced me that it's worth a look when I get back to it.  Right now I have an Economy in that shop that I have to get running.  If that happens in short order I will pull the Allis in next.  Right now the Allis is snowed in the lean to and in the back of everything else.  Major effort to get it out.  Just trying to get my ducks in a row now.  Thanks for the tip.

 

Next I have to come up with a paint color for this tractor.  I am only set up to use spray bombs so I hope to be able to find something close.

Yes just parted it out this week. It was in real ruff shape so not a lot that was good so just comes down to what you need.

Download the B&S Repairmans Manual from our Manuals Section it is excellant, though some things take a little time to find. Good Luck, Rick

I won't know until I get into it and that will be a couple of months yet.  Was the engine good?  I think mine is as it seems to have good compression but it never hurts to know where there may be a spare.

I have found many Briggs DON"T have the numbes stamped on them. Most I have are on Speedex tractors. I have seen some with a Sticker down low on sides, but mostly worn off then, kinda dumb. Most are along head at top on edge of blower housing, and some are on flat areas on side of housing. Have been times none showed up till I sanded the tin covers down to paint. Rust or re-paint had covered orig stamps. Doesn't take much rust to block them out, not real deep stampings.

Rustoleum has "Old cat yellow" in rattle cans. I think this is the closest thing to original color without having to pay the price for.mixing.
