Picked this up today. Briggs is missing the head but everything else seems to be there. I will mess with it later this week.

I did notice a small hole in the deck behind the left front wheel.

Also, the bagger will fit my other 21" Deere.

Another 5hp Briggs Quantum. One of my all time favorite engines. By the looks of the carbon on the block it either had a blown head gasket or warped head. It's pretty common for the head bolts to loosen up on them. I had a 14sb here for service a while ago but it had a 5hp OHV Kawasaki and it was a silver commercial model. 

 

I have 7 of those engines in various condition and a bunch of parts if your looking for a head,head bolts and air filter cover. I'll send them to ya for the price of shipping just let me know.

From what I found on JDParts.com last night it looks like a 4 HP engine.  My knowledge of briggs is limited but I am willing to learn.

A few of the seller's pics.  I also found some screws, bolts, and air cleaner in the grass catcher bag when I got it home.

JD lists the head part number as LG691160.

 

Briggs 4-6.75hp head is part number 691160. Wondering if there might be something different or that's just a JD adapted part number? If it's just a JD adapted part number I have several heads that will fit work on it.

I suspect that is just a Deere adapted number. They did something similar with Onan parts.

Taking some garage time after 15 hr day yesterday and another 8 at the church before 2 PM.

 

Serial number is TY14SBA  398404

 

Looking over the deck I found some chuncks missing on the bottom side and the hole I mentioned before.  Also, the paint or powder coat is peeling off in sheets.  It seems there is a fair amount of corrosion under it.    More pics in a bit.

 

 

Not sure what to do - my original intent was to us parts on my 21 with the broken handle but this one has some really nice features the 21 does not have.  Good news is that the chutes and bag are worth what I gave for the entire mower.

So what is the difference between the early L head engines and the Quantum design?  They sure look very similar on the outside.

Did a bit of disassembly to see what I find.  The oil looks great and the ridge on the cylinder wall is minimal.  I suspect it popped a head gasket.  As I cleaned it up you can see the paint/coat peel off in the pics.  This removal was done with my shop vac and nothing else.

Been thinking this one and doing a bit of compare and contrast between it and the 21 I have.  Like the evolution of the 140 to the 318, I can see the moves from the 21 to this model.  I will try to get pics of them together for reference.
