seems to me I was told the the "B" stood for ball bearings on the crankshaft instead of bushings. Don't know if this is right or not.

B&S model 9 engines were made August 1948 to December 1962.

 

ALL were cast-iron.

 

Model 9 had plain bearings (bushings) for the crankshaft.

 

Model 9B and Model 9FB used ball bearings for the crankshaft.

 

(You are right, Jeff!) :thumbs:
