Yes you can paint a briggs engine if you clean it very well with hi temp paint.. Rust can affect the stators performance by not allowing it to make a solid connection one a pass by. But if it still works.. the difference is minimal.

if your worried about it.. take either a stiff wire brush thats not super course.. or some 120 grit sand paper and just scuff the rust off.. Engine paint will decrease the engine value.. but if you don't plan on selling it.. give it a wire..
I polished a briggs 14.5 for a old client who needed the governor fixed.. so he had me polish it up for his tractor. It turned out pretty good.. i don't know how long it will last tho.. Because he died a month later and his sons took it even tho i told them the old man wanted me to have his "baby" which was a Simplicity 6012 i think??? Same thing my buddy just bought...

I have heard indications over the years that a light coat of flat black enamel actually improves thermal transfer efficiency. The increase would be minimal at best, but yes- you certainly can paint it- avoid the temptation to apply multiple coats or allow a heavy build.

It would take a LOT of rust to hinder either the stator or the ignition coil. To be safe, clean it up a bit and call it good.
