51 to 53 is correct. I have one with the same model number. It should have a Briggs in it. Good Luck with it ss12; I know I'll be needing it with mine...

The old jeep rims fit right on, might find a set with good rubber at the junk yard cheap. They have 5 holes but mount up fine. Ed

One thing I could share with you is that old briggs and continental engines are not worth working on too much unless its still in real good shape. Easier and cheaper to repower with a newer engine. I did that to mine and it works reliably each time I use it.

stuck exh. valve, fixed. but i've had help, lol. someone put on the wrong head gasket, put the shroud on the headgasket (instead of on top the head), one bolt is 1" to long so they used nuts for spacers, some have washers, others no. woo hoooo! on a side note, the cylinder looks great!
