Have you ever wondered how old your engine is? I will show you a fast and simple way to determine what year your Briggs and Stratton engine was manufactured. I also give you a couple tips and tricks on how to read the numbers more clearly!
This video describes how to decipher the numbers stamped or embossed on the sheet metal cover or plate on a Briggs and Stratton engine.
Your engine’s code number indicates the exact date it was manufactured as well as your model number and type. Knowing your model number, type and date code will make it easier to order parts or tune up kits.
For engines manufactured before 1965, you’re out of luck. The tracking system used with the Code Number was not implemented until 1965. Maybe its time for a new engine.
