Snowbird engine available

I bought some parts including an engine that I was told came on a snowbird. It's a Briggs and has a metal tank and glass fuel bowl under the tank. I would guess it's larger like 7 or 8 HP. I can get a model # tomorrow.

I'm guess that it is from 4-6 HP. Back then, 7-8 hp engines were used in cars ! LOL

That would be a 6hp. They used this engine on models 261, 262, 263 and the 264. Great engines!
