    model 14 year???

    Anyone know what year this is, model 143302, type 502525, serial 24874. I think it is 5.5 or 6hp but ID sheet list serial # instead of code.

    That is an oldie! If your serial number is correct, that is a 1948 model 14. That is the first year they were made. It was made in July or August and the first one was made in March. They were first listed as 5hp. Later the listing was changed to 5 1/2, then 5 3/4 and finally 6hp. The 6hp model 14 was discontinued in 1966. They are a real challenge to find parts for, but searspartsdirect can still find parts.

    For some reason, the model 14 doesn't show up in the repair manuals. Both 'Haynes' and my briggs manuals don't show the model 14. You can find most of the information in the model 17 section with only different bores. This makes the head, head gasket, rings and piston different. All the rest is the same( clearances, gaskets, crank, cam and valves). The seals may be different, so order those using your original model number.

    Thanks for the input, only way I knew it was a 14 was from Utube vid. my books do not list the 14 at all. Only problem with the motor is it has a 1" output shaft so I will need to find another crank or spring for a clutch.

    If the crank is solid on the PTO side like my model 14's was, it can be turned down to 3/4" and cut for a new keyway.

    Have any photos of it? Those old long-stroke engines are pretty cool.

    The best way to identify a model 14 if you don't have the ID tag, is by the head. The 14 only has 8 head bolts. The 7hp and 8hp are the same size block but have 9 head bolts.

    The number plates can be changed or lost, but that looks like an old motor with 4 coil mounting bolts. It looks like it is aluminium. 65shelby's motor is the correct early castiron model 14 with 7 head bolts. I found out it was '53 when briggs started making the aluminum motors. Look at the 'Iron Block motors' section to see 65shelby's motor.
