Briggs & Stratton model 6BS small air cooled gasoline engine



The 6BS was the first HORIZONTAL shaft air cooled ALUMINUM BORE engine sold by Briggs & Stratton. The first ALL aluminum crankcase engine sold was the 6BH, and it was a vertical crankshaft engine. This particular 6BS has a low 4 digit serial number was made in July of 1955. I do have the air cleaner for the engine.

  1. Hello, nice Engine you got there. It seems that I have got the same Engine but with a different Carburator wich is mounted on the side and Fuel is supplied by a seperat Gas tank. There is a video on my channel about it. I need a suitable shroud for it since the one on my engine is missing. Also there is no engine plate. Do you have any Ideas where I could get those parts? I didnt find anything on Ebay… 🙁
    Kind regards
