Dipstick tube is # 693174

Depending on engine year, there are two tube grommet seals available

693172
281370S

I had to order both seals since I don't know my engine year

Look on the side of the valve covers for some engraved numbers. Should have a date code.

Every Briggs engine I have worked on has a code stamped in the tin covers. It give you the year, crank type and other details on the engine?

I also bought a scrap $60 18hp Briggs for parts

That engine also doesn't have anything on the valve covers

I once bought a 23hp Briggs that was "unbranded", which meant that it didn't have any "Briggs" insignias or labels. With that said, it had a stamped tag with Briggs numbers on it on the tins. If yours doesn't have any numbers, I'm wondering if someone removed them, but why. Wierd.

Strange yes, made an interesting project not knowing the specific model number

In the end for a $200 purchase, I knew I had time since this is a winter project. I have all receipts but even with having spent $60 on a complete broke Briggs 18hp parts engine I'm still well under $400 in to the good 18hp engine

Will be much cheaper in the end compared to spending $1,000 to $1,500 for a new engine

Plus I sold my stock engine for $500
