i picked this engine up for 5 bucks at a yard sale today. i got it to run a short time dripping gas in the carb. it is complete except for the tin with the model number on it (go figure, where do these go?)anyway i took the tank, carb off to clean them out.my question it how do i tell what the model is without pulling the head off?.i had a model 9 but this one looks bigger so it might be a 19 or 23? any help always appreciated.

Looks a lot like the 10 hp I have on my wood splitter.  Came off a small grain agar used for loading trucks.  Heck of a good engine, plenty of power and a Briggs on top of it all.  You got a good deal on that one for sure.

I did have all kinds of old cast iron Briggs, zz ,b,k, exc. had them mounted on hardwood ,was in the north Idaho gas and steam buffs club,took them to the kootenai county fair ,all that. Got out of it now I might be getting the bug again.i think I had 13 total plus a whitte hit miss 3 hp. Sounded cool with 50 or so hit miss , Briggs running all at the same time

I agree.

 

The model 14 & 19 have 7 head bolts.

 

The 23's have 9 head bolts.

Nice find for the buck and looks reasonable ,the engine i have got has the same external points & cover & rope start but mine has embossed on the cowling , B & S , not briggs & stratton and it taller than the regular briggs & stratton , thinking mine was 7,1/2 HP there bouts
