Default Briggs & Stratton Model 6 (model N)

Hi,

Here In holland I have an old Army power unit. This is powered by an B&S Type 6 (this is the old N model).
I'm looking for a technical manual (internet??) so I can adjust the valves.
Does anybody now where I can find it?

Gr Gertjan

B&S models 5,6, and 8 all have the same specs for valve clearance.

Intake -- .007 inch minimum .009 inch maximum
Exhaust -- .014 inch minimum .016 inch maximum

The valve are adjusted when the engine is COLD.

Kent's info. is right on. I'll just mention that the valve clearances should be stamped on the lower part the aluminum ID plate riveted to the cylinder air shield. The left no. will be for intake, right for exhaust. Since you mentioned the model no., I'm assuming the data plate is still on the engine. You might try hunting eBay for the tech. manual. It may be a long hunt, but these things usually surface there.

The info I posted is from the B&S Service Manuel for out of Production Engines 1919-1981. B&S P/N CE8069-5/00.
