I did some trading and hauled home another engine. Still have another one to get but it was in a position where we couldn't get it out of a junk pile right now. He has to move a non running car first.

It appears this little 5 HP B/S has never been run. For some reason the carb/tank setup is gone, as well as the governor arm and linkage. The engine feels right, pulling the recoil and has great spark. No evidence of exhaust ever coming out of the port. In the oil plug holes it's completely dry.

Still, it's probably not worth buying the parts, but I will probably do it anyway. Then I can brag about having two NOS engines nobody wants around here---LOL!

I didn't google the numbers yet.

I'll take em both....lol

Looks like the mid 90s briggs 5hp I had on a go kart as a kid. Ran very nice. Always was a pain to start warm.

I love the old tecumseh engines but I hate to say I've all but given up on them.

Cool! They are still out there, still better than any predator.
It's have to wait til next time I went to the barn, but I think I have a good tank or 2 for those engines.
Not new, NOS, but good used. Don't remember if they (it? Thought I had 2) had carbs on them or not, been a while since I looked at them.

I'd have to put it back together too..providing parts aren't an arm and two legs.
New carbs seem easy enough to find, Bill, but no new tanks that I saw so far. I do have one, but it's still mounted on an I/C 5hp that I ran on my go kart for many years. The engine still ran well when I put it on a shelf 20 years ago. I'd rather leave that engine intact and assemble this one too.

The used assemblies I saw on ebay were at least one arm and one leg though. 90-110 bucks!

I'd do you a package deal on them both too---LOL! From what you remember on this B/S and what I found out on the NOS Tec HS40 is they are about the same age. The Tec looks to be produced in 1996.
I'm jealous Aaron---I didn't get my first go-kart until I was 25 years old---LOL! Still have my 3rd and final one hanging on the wall, also for about 20 years now.

Kind of fell into this one, Dodge. A friend came by to order 10 stickers. He saw the HH120 that is going to scrap laying outside. He told me to come get a "brand new" engine that looked like that laying in a junk pile at his shop. I was hoping for a bigger one but still couldn't turn it down. He's got a Honda horizontal crank engine for me to, still in a pressure washer too but can't get it out until a non-running car gets moved.
If you run across a fairly clean tank, let me know. I do have a good running predator too but that's another story.

Along the lines of NOS Briggs engines. I found a use for one of mine recently too. As it turns out I wound up with a swisher tow behind finish mower as part of the package deal with the intek engine I bought for a tractor I have. The swisher came to me with an 8hp Briggs that had the multi piece connecting rod option.
As it turns out I have a brand new 1982 vintage 8 hp Briggs in the shed that will go right onto that swisher mower..... I had to replace the foam air filter as it was totally disintegrated from old age .... Still haven't put gas or oil in it yet though.
Currently I have the mower on sawhorses and no place inside to store the machine, whole. So, I'm going to wait for spring to bolt the engine into it, as the engine can stay protected from the weather that way til I'm ready to use it.
