Briggs FI Engine


The featured engine here is a 1930 Briggs and Stratton Model FI engine that I have restored. Some applications for this engine were to run lawn mowers and electric generators.

The model FI was manufactured from 1927 to 1933.
It is rated at 3/4 horsepower with a 2.25" bore and 2.25" stroke.
The intake on this model is 1/2" suction-feed.
A Tillotson MS5A carburetor delivers the fuel mixture which is provided air through a horse hair element air filter.
The FI came with or without a governor.
The FI is equipped with dual overhead rocker arms.
This model has a lever-operated handle with a chain and sprocket to start the engine.
This particular engine has a stamped brass tag to identify it.
The exhaust is aspirated through a 3/4" NPT threaded port.
Gas tank is mounted externally on this model.
The engine block is made of cast iron and utilizes fins for air cooling.
