Had a discussion today with a couple of other contractors over the naming of Briggs engines such the Intek , The debate was over the number on cowling etc 55 ,60, & 65 does anyone know if this is the horsepower rating or is just the manufactures way of up dating the engine???

Are there really any changes between these engines , some say there are all the same internally just that they are there jeted up more. :blush:

Can't answer your question exactly but if you take your engines serial # and go to the Briggs web site you can find everything you wanted to know about it. HP, year made, accessories etc.....

Well, we're they 5.5, 6.0, and 6.5 hp engines?

Thats what they are in this case, The first two digits of the serial number denote the year of manufacture, The type number denotes different type parts that are installed to make the engine ( crankshaft, charging system, type starter ect. ).

In a 5 digit model number the first digit is the cubic inch displacement of the engine.Example 99000 is a 9 cu.in. engine. Where displacement is 10 or greater a 6 digit number is used Example 287707 or 28Q777 both are 28 cubic inch engines.
