Briggs stash

Me and my girl just bought a place in South Carolina from the family of an older gent who passed, seemed he was the local lawn mower repairman. I have been finding Briggs 5 horse motors all over the place. Chain saws, mowers new parts still in the boxes,, manuals. I even think I even found Forest Gumps mower ! And I hardly scratched the surface can't wait to dig deeper.


I will have to check don't think so, But I will look going back later this week. Most are 5hp horizontal motors. There is a bunch of mower and other lawn equipment stuff too though. Are the pull starts from horizontal and vertical engines the same ?
