I just won a very old briggs model 5s on e-bay.
was anyone had or seen one of these?
I know that telling the year on these are not the same as the briggs we are used too
so i found a fourm on old briggs engines that looks like it will help.
And these engines are all cast iron whitch is sweet.
Soon as i get it i'll make a video! afro

Yeah, Pre-63 or something like that the date codes didnt apply like they do to newer Briggs engines.
Is it a runner?

Yeah your rite about the date thing!

The guy says it needs to be gone over before running it cause it's not been ran for a while but he says it's got great compression.

Could be hard getting parts for an engine that age, that said, you never know what old stock places will have
