Default How from WV

I am from very southern most WV. Mercer co. I just bought what appears to be a Briggs maytag hit miss with no flywheel. Sorry I can't post a pic. It runs but will be 100% restored. I restore old IH Farmalls. Last one was a 51 Cub. Current on is a 69, 140. Now this engine fir perfect. I live it. I have a couple very novice questions like does it have to have the flywheel to trun well? What typr og fuel and oil used I use and lastly, where can I get a manual. Thank you men. OORAH!! God bless!!

I have been wrong before. But unless it is very old and has a seperate magneto. It must have the fly wheel to run that is where the magnets for the magneto are located. Also I have never heard of a briggs magtag, they are 2 different companys. A magtag would be 2 cycle and use an regular gas and oil mix. Most if not all briggs would be 4 cycle and use regular gas. Pictures would help. and welcome to the stak. Bill K

Briggs engine parts are available, some just cost more than others. Manuals are available either orginal, or reprints, or can be downloaded from briggs and stratton. Give me a hollar, and if it is a briggs engine, i can help.
