       thanks Bill

All engine parts can be ordered from Briggs.  What engine parts are you needing?  It may be cheaper to replace the entire engine.

Any mower parts, parts not on the engine, can be ordered from Snapper or you local Snapper dealer.  Use the URL to find the mower model number:

Let me know what parts you are needing and are you looking for decals for the engine or mower?  Mower decals come from Briggs and mower decals come from Snapper.  You can find most decals on Ebay.

Are you looking for the engine or mower manual?

Finally, send me the Snapper mower model as well.

Born and raised in the midwest. Started tinkering with engines when I was about 14 on my Suzuki RM-80. I began lawn mower repair at a small hardware store. I knew absolutely nothing. I read lots of repair manuals and met an older fellow who taught me many lessons. I continued working on small engines through high school and paid my way through college working on mowers at the same hardware store. Decided to get away from the midwest and mower repair so I joined the Air Force. I repaired air traffic control electronic equipment and ended up in Hawaii where I got a part time job at Small Engine Clinic. I gained a lot of experience from the Small Engine Clinic and had a blast repairing small engines. I then took the Briggs and Stratton Master Service Technician test and earned my MST. I then traveled to Wisconsin where I attended the factory update training seminar and received formal training. Continued working on mowers part time as I completed 20 years of military. Retired from the military on a Friday and continued in the lawn and garden industry the next Monday.
