    yes that's it,they came with pull starts too ,the 6b and 8b used the same cover, they are hard to find but that only matters if he wants to restore the engine. these were the first of the aluminum block engines.I have a 6b also that needs the correct cover. I think the style changed in 1958 to the letters on top but that might be because they started the 80000 series engines. I think 57 was the last year for the 8b.the 6b became the 60000 series.The difference was they started using cast iron flywheels and the crank balance weights were larger.I have an original 1958 80000 series that has an 8b head on if from the factory.

    Aluminum models info off the Wikipedia site

    * 6B (horizontal shaft) (1955—1958)
    * 6BH (vertical shaft) (1953—1958)
    * 6BHS (vertical shaft; suction carburetor) (1953—1958)
    * 6BS (horizontal shaft; suction carburetor) (1955—1958)
    * 8B (horizontal shaft) (1955—1958)
    * 8BH (vertical shaft) (1953—1958)
    * 60100 (horizontal shaft) (1958—1991)
    * 80100 (horizontal shaft) (1958—1977)
    * 80200 (horizontal shaft) (1960—1991) (horizontal shaft) and 190700 (vertical shaft) (1969—1997)

    it seems like i have a few very rare parts in my stock .i have 3 of the newer housing with the logo letters on the top . 1 rope cup and 2 of the recoil kind . then the black housing off my 6b .

    My black tag does not have anything stamped in it for the model.The coil does have 4 holes in it and my wheel with all the fins is steel ( I stuck a magnet on it to check) with an alluminum insert in it.

    you probably have an early 1958 6b. you can tell for sure by measuring the bore and stroke.I don't remember what the exact measurements are but I could get them if you need them

    B & S Model 80209 3hp

    Sorry to bring up a dead thread, but thereís a lot of good info, some bad info, and info not pertaining to this engine. I only comment now, so anyone looking at this post for help with the same model number, wonít get confused by the previous comments. This is a 3HP Model 80902 (80000 series engine). Getting the exact manufacture date like other Briggs is nearly impossible for the 6B, 8B, 60000, and 80000 series engines. If they have a Serial number, then you canít date them, unless you have a very special book, that isnít published and is not in circulation. Youíll need to post of Smokestak forum and pray one of the two people with books, replies to your post.
    If you have a 60000 (2hp) or 80000 (3hp) with a Model, type, and CODE, then you can break down the code to find the year it was made. They didnít use the CODE system until 1965. The Original Poster, posted a picture of the ID, but it didnít have a model number on it. Thatís because itís stamped on the side of the aground, beside the carb. The ID tag on the 6B, 8B, 60000 & 80000 didnít always match the shroud. Thatís okay. Just use the info on the shroud. Comments were made that this isnít the right aground. Ignore that. This is the correct shroud. This engine was most likely made sometime between Ď60-Ď64. You can tell because of the model number 80209 & the air cleaner. The air cleaner and the bolt to connect it to the carb, are one piece, and not separate like the 6B-S.
    As far as value goes. 6B-S is what you want, but theyíre hard to find. That was the first Aluminum Block engine. The 60000 and 80000 are a little more common, but still collectible. Hopefully they got this thing restored and looking pretty. Again, sorry to bring up a dead post. I just want some misinformation to be cleared up, for future hobbiest who come to this post for answers.
