Howdy Woodgasers! I just came across most of an old engine from a tiller or edger. I figure if I can get it working again, it would be a more suitable test platform for any Woodgas adventures than my current engines that I can’t afford to lose.
The only numbers/markings I could find on it (at first) were from what’s left of the valve cover gasket, but that Googles to valve cover gasket for Briggs&Stratton 2-5HP horizontal-shaft engines.OK, I just found a second number which was much more helpful. The Head had a number that was only visible after pulling the head and that number linked to a specific model of B&S engine which appears to match my engine. http://www.ereplacementparts.com/briggs-and-stratton-80200-series-engine-parts-c-16758_17347_19082.html?
I know it’s missing the gasoline carb, valve cover, outer housing, and a few other misc parts, and has a rusty/stuck intake valve stem. Other than the intake valve, it spins/cycles freely and has the intake manifold with throttle butterfly.
I’m about to pull the head and soak the intake valve area in some diesel/oil to try to free it up for removal and cleaning.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to post pictures soon…
