    Correct B&S 3HP Engine for a 67 Taco 22

    Wondering if someone can help me out with an engine question. I want to install a period correct 3HP Briggs & Stratton engine in my 67 Taco 22. My question has to do with the engine Model number, should it be a 80202? I haven't been able to locate a 80202 with a 67 Code but I did find a 80302 with the correct 67 Code number. What is the difference between a 80202 and a 80302?

    Thanks

    The third digit refers to the type of carb the engine had. A "2" would be a "Pulsa-Jet"carb that uses a diaphragm (no float bowl) and the carb is mounted directly on top of the fuel tank. A "3" would be a "Flow-Jet" carb with a conventional float bowl that uses a separate fuel tank. A "period -correct" engine for your 1967 Taco would have been Model # 80202.
