I'm trying to locate imfo on Briggs & Stratton marine engines. Or maybe a supplier for the transmisson. I have a pix ,but no scanner for a B&S with a trans bolted directly to the case. It had a F-N-R switch on it. It had a very short shaft and a 2 blade prop. I saw it a antique engine show in Rutladge, Vt. several years ago. I've seen a Pearoe in New Orleans,La. [Wooden Boat Show] that had a B&S in it. I'd like to build a setup like this. Any help? Thanks

Hey Bruce, The B&S installation you saw in Madisonville, Louisiana is common practice down here. The engine is simply an off the shelf engine that is not classifed as marine when it leaves the factory. If you are coming this year, stop by and talk to me about it. I'll be just south of the bridge with my Cypress BATEAU with a 6HP LOCKWOOD ASH engine. JB and others will be there with ole time boats. It's Sept 28th and 29th.

Question. The Briggs and Stratton switch. I am under the impression that they started out in their very early years making ignition parts and only after they bought O.E.Smith did they go into making gas engines. Does anyone have the true story?
