I called 2 places to find the crank side Oil seal on a Briggs engine and they tell me the engine number does not exist.

Here is what I have...

McLane 1980 Edger

2 HP 4cycle Briggs and Stratton 109CC

The number off the Engine Shroud is...

Model Type Code
60102 0391 01 80072403 (This is the right number it is clearly stamped on the engine shroud, also I'm 99% sure it is the original shroud.)

I need the crank side oil seal, so I am looking for the part number.

Thanks for any help.

The people you have called probably don't realize briggs has changed the search on some of their software and the model number must be 6 digits, so call them again and tell them it is a 060102 and they should be able to find it. Have a good one. Geo

Thanks for the response. I got the seal and fixed the oil leak. I have one new problem...

The edger will only start on low idle (hot or cold). What causes this condition?

Maybe the carburetor is adjusted a little lean.

Here we go again (in referenced to the color of somke :freak:)

That's a little oil burning, could be from worn valve guides, of wear in the cylinder and or rings. It's nothing to really worry about.

Since this is an engine repair forum and not one of lost love I would have to relate it to what would be appropriate for the forum. Since you are starting from scratch, I would say, you must have enough money for the project, then you need to check the project closely, does it have any obvious flaws that would prevent or make it not be a worthwhile investment, then there are the not so obvious concerns, parts, is the crankshaft going to fit, are the seals tight, etc. Some times a seal might look good but blow the first time it gets hot. These are some things to look for in and engine. However, you could just go say hi to her. Have a good one. Geo

Yeah those seals are tricky. Get them in the wrong spot and you have a heck of a mess goin on. Don't get em in far enough and someones gonna be disappointed by their performance. Probably won't last that long either. Don't use one at all and stuffs gonna spill out everywhere.
