I have dealt with that seller before and he usually is pretty knowledgable about the old engines he sells. According to the Briggs carb information on the ASECC site, that carb (Type N) was used on both the I and the WI. I took a quick look at Mike in NC's web-site and checked the Type number (95013) and it does come back to a Model IB. (Sears number listed in the auction is 500.95013)

Personally, I think the engine he has there looks more like a WI than an I. Things that stand out to me are the crankcase breather tube and the base - But I am not an expert on old Briggs variations.....

That's the first block I've seen with the flange castings that didn't have the bosses drilled & tapped.

See John's post. The type number says it is an IB, not an IBP.
