Default Briggs ID What Year Model and hp is my Friends Briggs

It has a moto mower tag on the frame and one that has oil type and weight on the block and has p4499 stamped in the block and does not appear to be the original carb but it runs well with it

I seem to recall Briggs recommended that every 50 hours the crankcase be drained and flushed out with kerosene.
