Default Briggs & Stratton NR6

Picked up a B&S NR6 from a friend over the weekend, it is the big tank version with the cast in gear reduction. Had to rebuild the carb, clean the points, new spark plug, and a valve job (valves rusted open). Took a little bit of work but well worth it! I plan to paint it Olive Drab (August 1944 manufacture). If you notice on the right corner of the shroud below the tank it has a push in kill button, I still need to wire it back in, but I thought it was a rather unique item. I am having a hard time finding the correct oil bath filter for it (dome topped), so for now I will have to use a flat top oil bath until I can find one.

Yeah, she seems like a decent runner. I'd actually like to get a water pump or something to run off of it (I have a cute little flat belt pulley for a B&S)...

Got one (flat belt water pump), not sure it would be worth the drive to Oregon. Plus I may have to find an engine to run it.
