Talking B&S Powered Yardman Mower

I recently bought an old Yardman riding mower that runs great & mows well, I want to give it a good tune up anyway. I also plan to paint and restore it. I usually build up old cars, but this will be a different type of project. My problem is that I don't know what year it is. On the eng case it says Model:130902, Type:0175 01, Code 6711066. Can any of you folks out there help me out? I am very impressed with this site. Wow, I didn't know there was so much interest in antique small engines. I think I might have found a new hobby. Thanks for your help.

It's a 13 cubic inch displacement (probably 5hp) engine. this is taken from the first 2 digits of the model number.
It was made in 1967. This is from the first 2 digits of the code.

Good luck with your project and post some pictures so we can see your progress!

Thanks Harry

Yes, 1967.
If the engine is running well, then all I would do is change the oil and keep the fuel system clean. after a number of hours, the carbon will build up around the valves. That could cause a valve to stick. Lots of abandoned engines can be restored just by a good de-carbon job. Maybe touch up the contact points and change the plug. Eventually the governor link parts will wear out, and the throttle shaft bushings.
