Model, Type and Code numbers

Briggs and Stratton engines are identified with a MODEL, TYPE and CODE number system and take the form of the example below.

12F8020637 0199070759

The numbers can be in a variety of locations depending upon the engine but are generally to be found either:-

Sometimes, plastic covers or excess paint may obscure the details but they will be there.
The only exception is if the main cowling or part holding the details has been previously replaced. In which case the details should have been retained from the old part.

How to use the Parts Illustrations

Your downloaded parts illustrations are a series of pages within one pdf document. The righthand scrollbar is used to scroll through the pages.

Generally, page 1 is an index detailing which page each section is on.
Find the page showing the part that you need and then locate the part.

The part will have a reference number next to it. Make a note of this number.

You now need to convert this reference number into the correct part number.

The part number index will be listed in one of two ways:

  1. Each illustration has its corresponding list of numbers below it
  2. All of the numbers are listed on pages at the bottom of the whole document
The lists are in reference number order. Find your part's reference number, check it's description and read the corresponding part number

For example, item reference 333 ignition armature from the following list...

332   690662   Nut
333   802574   Armature-magneto
334   691061   Screw

...would be part number 802574 and decription Armature-magneto

Where choices are shown on the illustration

Sometimes illustrations show a number of choices for a part, each with a different reference number.
Often the alternative reference numbers will carry a letter.

4, 4A, 4B etc.

Carefully compare the picture with your part to see which setup you have.

The description in the part number listing will also help to correctly identify it.

for example:
4       493279   Sump-engine
4A     493365   Sump-engine(aux pto)

Where item 4A (493365) has an auxillary PTO drive shaft on the side.

(see also "Used on Type" and "Used Before/After Code")

"Used on Type" part choices

Some parts references give a number of alternative part numbers depending upon the engines TYPE number.

For example:
83   691778Shaft-auxillary drive
690522 Shaft-auxillary drive used on Type Nos. 1170,2950,2951.
690527 Shaft-auxillary drive used on Type Nos. 1141,1172,1516.

In this example:

(combinations of type and code dependant alternatives are often encounered, work out what you need in careful, logical steps)

Return to top of page
"Used Before/After Code" part choices

Some parts references give a number of alternative part numbers depending on the age of the engine, or it's CODE number.

For example:
802   695267Cap-End
(used after code date 00040600)
695975 Cap-End
(used before code date 00040600)

In this example:

Be aware that the first 6 digits of the code depict the engines build date YYMMDD so code 99042058 (20/04/1999) would be before 00040600 (06/04/2000)
Combinations of type and code dependant alternatives are often encounered, work out what you need in careful, logical steps

Crankcase Gasket Thicknesses

Crankcase gaskets are listed with a choice of thicknesses (.005",.010",.015" etc.)to allow adjustment of excessive crankshaft end float.

The thickest option is the original size and is used in most cases. If however, there is excessive crankshaft end play(in and out), then choose a gasket that will reduce it by the desired amount.

Piston and Ring Sizes

Most pistons and ring sets are available in oversizes. This is to accomodate cylinder rebore repair.

Only fit the size of rings to suit the size of piston.

An oversize piston will be marked as such(.020" etc.), generally on it's top face. It is worth checking for this if you require rings.
