Had this for a few years. Seat pan and engine breather cover were missing. NO numbers anywhere to be found. It has the six speed rear. Had it running a couple years ago, slight knock could be heard. Trying to figure what the engine is to see if it is worth saving. Anyone need parts? Sheet metal is good, rear end is sound, and PTO works. Help!!!

I think it's Briggs, but that's as far as I can go.

It looks to be a Briggs. Possibly a 14 or 16 horse. There should be some numbers on the tin work right under the fuel pump. There should also be a model and serial number for the tractor under the seat usually mounted to the fender pan. That is the best I can do without any numbers.

Seat pan was not with tractor. I purchased this one, so #s do not match. There are no #s on any of the engine tin.

That surprises me that there isn't any numbers on the motor but I have come across other motors without any numbers. Sorry I can't give you anymore help.

I took a scotch bright to all the tin, hoping something would show. No go. May have been on air filter lid.

No engine numbers will be on the air filter housing I'm afraid.

Kenny, lot of craftsman used 400series horiz 2 cyls. ie 400707s were pretty common in these, 14 to 16 hp Briggs.

numbers were stamped in sheet metal on cylinder shroudlike tinkerer stated. hard to see

Regards. George. TIP, Lots of parts are interchangeable between horiz opposed and vertical opposed. Ign, starters etc , just a thought.

P.S. Due to being a large chunk of aluminum, these engines are rapidly dissapearing to the salvors. this is a shame in my opinion, I have run these engines in HEALD super trykes for several years, and very seldom had a failure. I like the two cyl opposed engines. My opinion.

Since it has sat for so long, starter no longer works. Engine ran, with a slight knock. I will probably part it out. Anyone wanting parts, send me a PM and we will work something out. I am offering this to the forum before listing anywhere else. Tranny is sound, was a little hard to shift hi/lo, probably needed to lube linkage.
Forgot to add that the PTO clutch seemed to work okay.

I will remove the body side panels today and try to get a better look at the engine tins. Maybe get lucky and find something. I charged the camera batteries, so there will be pics.

Took front sheet metal off and snapped a few pics. Wiped areas down with a damp rag and nothing showed up. It is an 18 hp, as the decal says.

Nowhere are there any #s. And the decal says Craftsman. Was this made for them by Briggs?

Likely if the numbers were found, they would be a Sears number instead of Briggs. At least that's how Sears was on Tecumseh engines on power products.

that there is either a late GT18 or an early GT6000
the engine code should be by the spark plugs on either side. it isnt a label. its a imprint that if you can shine a light on it just right you can it.
