Good condition, but I don't know if I buy the NOS claim.

It looks identical to my 1100 series Clinton engine.

Briggs tags were riveted to the tin with a paper cover over the tags. The paper was removed after the engines were painted. Sometimes the edges of the paper lifted and over spray got on the tag. Here is a pic of an NOS Briggs 23BP engine as the paper tag was removed. Also, here is a pic of the tag on my Allis B1. The B1 is in original paint and you can see paint on the rivets, paper between the rivets and the tag, and over spray on the tag. Hard to tell if that engine for sale is in original paint, but paint on the tag is not uncommon on NOS engines.

Surely not their own brand, wondering what one?  Clinton could be it then.  I've also seen bigger ones with name that were Wisconsins, this is not that. Kinda like Sears with Craftsmans made by Tec forever.

I'm very suspicious. He double talks. "Gas tank is spotless, all it needs is some carb cleaner run through it." is self-contradictory. Paint has a funny sheen to it. If you go to look at it, be very carefull. Good Luck, Rick

That's because it is a Clinton engine manufactured by Clinton for Montgomery-Ward.
