Another 30 yr old barn find 1960s Briggs and Stratton

I picked up this 60s 9HP Briggs and Stratton last week. The last owner said it was in a barn for years and needed the points adjusted/cleaned. I cleaned and gapped the points and cleaned the fuel bowl under the gas tank, checked the oil and connected a wire that was pulled apart thinking it would fix the spark problem, but soon I realized it wasn’t suppose to be connected and it fired right up.

  1. Love the cast iron Briggs engines. I have a few 9 hp's. Looks like a model 233… Making it at the oldest a mid 60's engine. I believe Briggs 9 hp engines with the model 233… were made up into the early 80's. I can't really read the first 2 numbers in the code number (which give the year of manufacture) in your video, but they look like 74 ? If that is the number that makes it a 1974 Briggs. Just an FYI.
