I am in need of help identifying this motor.  I can't find any spec plates, stampings or other Id marks on this motor.  I bought this rusty turd just for a couple of implements that were attached to it and was planning on just junking the rest.  Well I was board a few weeks back so for the heck of it I tossed a fresh battery in it and much to my surprise it turned over.  so I gave it a few shot of either and hit it again and the dang thing fired off.  so now I guess I am going to save this rusty turd from the scrap pile.  I just don't know what to use as a motor type to get parts.  I am going to guess it is the motor that came in this 7010 simplicity but not sure.  I am wanting a rebuild kit for the card and points and cover. 

 

any help would be great.

     Definitely a briggs Stratton, most likely a 10 hp 243400 series engine.  you should be able to find the serial # on the flywheel shroud up on top or down near the bottom on the carb side I think.  small stamped #'s.

It has the head shape of an older Briggs. They have the numbers stamped into the tin and they can be hard to find if things are rusty and dirty.

:welcometogttalk:
Thanks for joining up and introducing us to your diamond it he rough.
Odd thing here is that a manual (http://www.manualsli...?page=37#manual) says the engine is supposed to be a Kohler, but that looks like a Briggs to me as well. It may be different years, as they made these for several.
Hopefully a Simplicity Guru will happen along and help out.

This is an engine of the same vintage. The code number for the engine is right under the white label on the s/g side of fan shroud.

Definietly worth saving!

Parts are still available for these Older Briggs and Stratton engines :thumbs:

Yup, that's a great engine and will have roller bearings on the crankshaft. That engine you have there is from 1977, due to the first two digits of the serial being 77. I'm rebuilding one from 78 that was used as a replacement engine on an Allis Chalmers Big Ten.

The carburetor part # is 391073 and the carburetor rebuild kit part # is 299720. Your carburetor should have four screws holding the top and bottom halves of the carburetor together.
