Default Need to ID this engine

I have a Briggs engine I need to ID. I was told when I bought it that is a 7 hp engine.

Model # 140302

Type. # 0111-02

Code # 6506231 1965 ? or is this a serial number ?


I would like to know the size, year made and horsepower.

This engine is quite a bit bigger than a 5 hp engine.

Sorry, can't do a picture today.

Looks like it was manufactured on 06-23-65 by the code number. I've been on the Briggs site, and it has no listing for a 140302 model.

I'm sorta estimating by the model that it's a 6 hp. The 5 hp's are 130XXX model no.

140302 is a 14 cu in engine. Early ones were called 5.75hp, later 6hp

I have not heard of the 140000 series either. I was aware of the 130000 series 13 cubic inch engines and the 170000 17 cubic inch engines but nothing in between. Please post a picture when you get a chance.

I found my Briggs & Stratton 1972 parts and service data book. It does list 140000 thru 140700 series engines. We have been remodeling and some of my books were packed away. I have seen on the internet a lot of lists that leave out the 140000 series engines probably because they are so old and not as common as some older Briggs engines. Thank you all for your replies and comments. I only recently got interested in the newer Briggs aluminum block engines. I also just found a 170000 series engine in the hoard last night while looking for a starter clutch. It is gold colored and has the remains of a water pump on the PTO shaft I need to remove. I need to get a proper camera so I can post pictures here, there and everywhere.

The 14 cu in engine was a "standard" used for years on Snapper riders and others. It was made both vertical and horizontal shaft and was a very popular engine in it's day. I'm somewhat surprised that it was left out of newer publications. It was a good motor and had a much better carb on it than the 5hp 13 cu in series
