I've been trying to get the parts diagram for a Briggs engine that I need a part for, but I can't seem to figure it out. I know I had trouble figuring it out before one time, but that time I eventually figured out the puzzle; this time it has got me in a corner.

The website says: Enter your engine model number in the following format: XXXXXX-XXXX-XX

Here are my engine #s:
Model# 280777
Type# 0129 01

According to what the instructions above, 280777-0129-01 would be the correct way to enter it into the search box.??? That doesn't bring anything up.:dunno:

Musta got out of the 'wrong side of bed' this morning...

Brigg's site can be frustrating! Don't feel alone, I've spent way too much time trying to find information on their engines myself, and when I did, I couldn't tell you how I did.

I definitely hear you guys there!

I've had the same trouble too locating general information, more specifically, model years etc on Briggs engines. There are some good informative sites out there, but, you normally have to visit a multitude of them which will lead to pieces of the puzzle like you stated in order to gather all the information that you're looking for. For example, you might come across a site that lists the year ranges or specific models but if you want to see the horsepower and specs of the engines, then you have to visit a different site. At least that's my experience.

Wayne, I've tried that number every way I can think of, and I can't get any results either. Like I said, navigating their site can be frustrating!:mad:

I might just have to call their customer service number if it doesn't work sometime this week. It's not really a hurry, but I would like to get a new part for the engine and get the project out of the way.

Wayne, is there any chance that's a Q instead of a 0 in 280777? That fellow over in another post about a rewind for his Briggs just posted the number 31C707. I did a Google on Briggs and Stratton 31C707 and darned if the information for that engine on Briggs' site didn't show up. So I tried Googling Briggs and Stratton 280777 to see what would happen and the first thing on the list was 28Q777. Maybe it didn't stamp well enough into the sheet metal to see the little squiggle on the Q.

This it?

Hey, you're right Bruce! I just checked that stamp again and, sure enough, I hadn't caught that it was a Q instead of a 0. Thanks a lot!
