Notice of possible service disruption
Between the last week of June and the first two weeks of July, Briggs and Stratton will be implementing a global update of all systems. During this period, there will be no movements of parts or engines from their distribution centres. This will impact on our service to customers. In readiness for this, we are endeavouring to increase our stocks in line with anticipated sales over this period however, it is inevitable that some items will become out of stock due to unexpected sales trends. Similarly, many less popular parts ordered through the special orders system which we do not hold here, will experience a fairly substantial delay. We are already noticing some disruption in parts movement as Briggs prepare for this monumental change. We shall endeavour to keep customers informed where we become aware of any orders or enquiries for parts affected. Some anticipated availability times will no doubt be somewhat disappointing but we will try to be realistic rather than promising something that is unlikely or unachievable.
All being well the disruption will be kept to a minimum and our increased stock holdings will largely allow the majority of regular orders to be processed as normal. Appologies in advance for any inconvenience that this may cause
The complete engine and 496606 short block for side valve engines who's model numbers begin with 28 are no longer available. The replacement engine would be the Intek 13HP OHV (see above for details). This engine is slightly different in its overall dimensions and the exhaust in on the opposite side so you would have to check its suitability to the application.
The alternative if feasible would be to repair your original with new parts. Once stripped down and the parts requirement is known, you can have the parts priced using the illustration and enquiry steps on the page below.
