    Default Help with date of mfg on Briggs and Stratton 18 hp engine.

    Okay so on my backhoe/ riding mower. I have an 18hp Briggs and stratton engine.

    I got the code off of it and was just wondering if I decoded the date of mfg right?

    The code is

    88110712

    From looking at the code, I'm assuming it was made on 11-07-1988.

    So if that's right the engine is older than I thought. I thought it was only about 10 years old, but if that engine was made in the year 88 "Year I was born" then the engine is close to my age.

    I'm 23 and if I'm correct the engine is 22 years old.

    I was born March 8th 1988.

    The engine runs strong and the only thing I had to do was replace spark plugs and clean carb.

    A briggs has never failed me and this is no exception.

    If I have to buy a new engine, it's definitely gonna be another Briggs.

    I was incorrect in my dating method for the briggs. It is year,month,day of manufacture. too many dating methods to keep track of.
