How Do I get my Briggs and Stratton Parts List & Repair Manual?


All engine literature requests require the engine's STAMPED Model (6 characters), Type (4 digits) and Trim (2 characters) Numbers. For assistance with locating your engine numbers, please view the video below:

Operator's Manuals and Illustrated Parts Lists are available for download from our website. Please visit our Manuals page and enter your model number into the search field after selecting the correct product type powered by your engine.

To ensure a proper document search, please keep the following points in mind:

  • Engine numbers must be entered into the search field in the Model-Type-Trim format (example: 126T12-0137-B1). Numbers entered outside of this format will not be recognized by the system.
  • If your engine Model Number has only 5 characters (example 98902), a zero (0) must be added to the front of the number (098902) to satisfy the 6 character requirement and be recognized by the system.

  • If you are certain you have the correct Model-Type-Trim combination, and no document results are found, try using "99" as your Trim Number (example: 126T12-0137-99) This is especially true for engines manufactured before the 2000 model year.

  • Operator's Manuals and Illustrated Parts Lists for engines manufactured prior to 1965, or those that do not conform to the current five to six character Model Number standard (i.e. Models WM, ZZ, 5S, 8FB, 19, 23D, etc.) may be available via our Antique Engine Manuals FAQ.

A good source for engine specifications and technical servicing information would be a Briggs & Stratton Repair Manual (Lookup Manual by Engine Model). The correct Repair Manual for your model engine is often listed in your engine's Illustrated Parts List.

Repair Manuals are available for purchase through our web site or authorized dealer.

Other helpful maintenance and instructional guides such as our Small Engine Care & Repair Manual - #274041 can also be ordered through this area.
