Our Briggs and Stratton Model Number DIY Guide will teach you how to find your small engine model, type and code tag.



Knowing the model, type and code of your Briggs and Stratton engine will make it easy to order the correct maintenance or repair parts for your small engine.

Briggs and Stratton small engines power Briggs and Stratton branded equipment as well as equipment produced by many other manufacturers.

Typically outdoor power equipment will have both an equipment model number tag and an engine model number tag.

As you guessed, the engine model tag is located on the engine and the equipment model number tag is located on the equipment.

Typically, you need your engine model number to find parts for your engine and you need your equipment model number to find parts for the equipment.

Here are some examples of which model number you’ll need.

Air Filter = Engine Model Number
Blade = Equipment Model Number
Gas Cap = Is the gas tank located on the equipment or the engine?
Oil Filter = Engine Model Number
Wheel = Equipment Model Number

Refer to our How to Find Model Number article for typical equipment model number locations.
