I got a free 14.5 horse power briggs from a Sabre riding mower and I mounted it on my off road racing craftsman I cleaned out the cylinder and the carb but it didn't come with a spark plug so if any body could tell me what type/ model number spark plug to use also the is a electrical plug on the bottom of the carb and the plug is on the drain plug/ bowl nut but anyways does anyone know what that's for?

The spark plug should be a RC12YC (Champion #)
The thing under the bowl is an anti-backfire solenoid. It needs 12V to operate; the engine won't run if it's not working.

We have ran a couple of those engines. Removed the fuel soliniod and replaced with a plug, they tend to go bad. Also they would foul plugs, so got a hotter plug for it, parts store can tell you what plug is hotter. They will blow oil if you run high rpms. Strong motor, plenty of power.
