There are many variables that come into play when replacing an existing engine with a new one (shaft extension, mounting base, overall fit, etc.).
PLEASE NOTE: The engines listed in this catalog are meant to fit a wide variety of equipment and may NOT necessarily be the exact engine you have currently on your equipment or the one that you are planning on purchasing.
Not every engine we manufacture is shown in the replacement catalog, but one of the "service replacement engines" listed may fit your application. Be certain to measure your current engine/equipment and compare these measurements to the specifications listed in the catalog to determine the best replacement for your current engine.
However, comparing an engine in this catalog to one with a similar horsepower and engine name will provide a general idea of the specification.
If you determine that a replacement for your engine is not possible and you would like to repair the current one, your engine's Illustrated Parts List is available for download from our website. Please visit our Operator's Manuals & Illustrated Parts Lists page and enter your engine numbers into the search fields.
A good source for engine specifications and technical servicing information would be a Briggs & Stratton Repair Manual. The correct Repair Manual for your model engine is often listed in your engine's Illustrated Parts List. Repair Manuals are available for purchase from a Briggs & Stratton authorized dealer.
In any case, since Briggs & Stratton does not sell engines factory direct, and to ensure that your replacement engine will fit and perform properly with your existing application, please consult a local Briggs & Stratton authorized dealer.
