Briggs and Stratton Antique Engines

Restored antique gas engines are a testament to the passion that our fans have and to the longevity of a properly maintained lawn mower with a Briggs & Stratton engine. We’ve seen folks restore 85 year old Briggs and Stratton engines as well as “younger ones” from the 1950’s and earlier and we love hearing all about the rebuilt engines.

How To Rebuild an Engine

If you are considering undertaking an engine restoration, we have some resources available to help. First check out our Antique Engine Repair Manuals for some out-of-production engines as well as some owner’s manuals and operator manuals available for certain models. In addition, there is a whole community of dealers and enthusiasts who might be able to help (though they are not directly affiliated with Briggs & Stratton). Many of these are good sources for engine parts as well as information and inspiration.

And, if you have a great antique engine restoration story or picture to share, we’d love to hear about it. Comment here or visit the Briggs and Stratton Facebook page to share.

‘Till next time!
