I can't see it replacing the "a" as they're were built at the same time with the "h" being 1/2hp and the "a" being 1hp. . if you answered emails from me you would have been sent all the info i have on briggs marine. copies of 3 different ads and a briggs marine brochure, send me your address and i'll send out what i have. good luck.

They didnt replace the HM with the AM as said in the center of mschreiber's ad Models HM IMT AM AMT ect. also all HMs had a base, not a plate like plain H engines. If your tag says HM either someone replaced the base with a plate or the tag isnt off that engine.

Here is a lever start Model H that I restored several years ago.
The riser feet are home-made.
