Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Can you provide the model and type number from the engine?

Parts should still be available for the engine unless it is extremely old. If you can provide the model and type from the engine I will check on this and let you know for certain.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
The engine is a B&S Magnetron 3 HP. Model 8967-0, Serial #(###) ###-####
Went to B&S, all parts except a few nuts and screws are obsolete. Even thought the engine is in like new condition replacement parts are no longer available.

Can you provide the model and type number from the engine itself for me? The numbers that you have given to me here are from the genset frame which aren't giving me any information about the engine or engine related parts.
