Acquired this old Briggs engine today. It was sold as a Sears engine. Model 500.208064, series 10-1. Kinda looks like an A, B, Z, ZZ, K. I am not familiar enough with the old Briggs. Just thought I'd share it with you guys out there who may like the old moster Briggs as I do. :wave:

You guys up north find all the neat stuff. Down here it all gets recycled. If it don't rain down here soon they will be building wind breaks out of it. Love the old BIG Briggs. Great find.

Update! I have been informed it is a Model A! The 6 head bolts designate it as such.

I'd never heard that one until I saw it over on the Stak. I'll have to check mine. I always ID an A by the fact that it doesn't have a removable part for the output bearing.

Me either. I pulled the shroud off mine this morning and will eventually get around to cleaning the points to see if it will at least fire. I am pulling the carburetor bowl off too, and see what is going on in there. Idle mixture needle will have to be replaced as someone in the past got a little rambuncious with it. I am sure the needle and gaskets will have to be replaced at minimum. Oh well, they are fun to tinker with, though. Does yours run? If so, I would love to see a video of it.
