When I see what they had for a carburater back then, I wonder why it's so hard to get one to work right now.

Know what you mean lily's dad. Old briggs are extremely simple and they almost always work.they are not fuel efficient by any means

WM mean Wash Machine?  They had kick starts for the women to be able to start, right?  What HP rating, must be real low, below 1hp??  Ever had head off, how tiny are the pistons and valves?

I remember my mother using a washing machine with a gas engine back in the mid 40s. I was too young to know what brand of engine or cared.

Sears washing machines used Briggs engines just like that. Maytag made their own engines
