Briggs and Stratton WMG were made from 1937 to 1942

They are a rare engine and 5 bucks was a good deal

These were washing machine engines with generators attached

You are missing the generator like most and the kick start assembly

 

Here is what its suppose to look like when complete, without washing machine tho

Here is a article on them in Gas Engine Magazine
