Ray, do you have any more pics of this engine? I am in contact with a B&S tech trying to run the code #'s. He would like to see the whole engine!
Briggs & Stratton identification ?

Kenny, not sure if it helps but Ray's engine doesn't have a code number. His numbers are model-type-serial number. These were produced prior to the use of the code number that told the date.
- KennyP said thank you

trust me the 3 is airvane and 4 is mechanical governor
Are you sure ? - Because my 302 has/had a mechanical gov.
My Uncle used his 302 w/ Airvane as a template and made an airvane gov. for this engine.
Works great too BTW
We had the book out and went thru the #s - I thought sure he said the #4 indicated something to do with a gear or crank difference.
Anyway - We have done 2 of these motors and I have to say they are a real Gem of a motor. The one on my machine runs great now .
Starts easy , I have no history on the tractor but it had to have sat for a very long time .
Back in those days they were changing things on the fly - My engine has openings on both front and back for oil check - his has only the front -on his 60' has it only on the back .
Hold on - My Uncle just called and is going to get his book for this.....
3=design series related to cyl. construction
3=position of crank shaft and type of carb.
0= type of bearings -equipt with reduction gear or aux drive
2=type of starter = rewind
look at the post
another b&s question model 140000
seems alot of wrong info is out there on this series of engines
