What is the difference between a model 6 and 8 briggs? And is any of the parts interchangeable? I just bought 2 engine one is a model 6 for sure but the other is missing the shield is missing and I can't tell, I was hoping it would be a 8 for parts for my power hoe. Thanks Wil

A 6 is 2 in bore and stroke. An 8 is 2.25 bore and 2" stroke. 6 cubic inch vs 8. Couldn't tell you right off what would interchange but you could get the IPLs for both engines and check numbers.

The unknown engine has a bore of 1.82 so it probably won't work for parts to the #8 iv got off my power hoe. The next question is would the number 6 I just got with the gear reduction be a suitable replacement for the #8 that came off it?
