They just throw those in to confuse you.

Just kidding, but You did not say what engine this is for, Briggs, Honda, Tecumseh???

Some sets cover a broad spectrum of engine models. This is common.
Different carburetors or subtle differences in exhaust systems would account for the extra gaskets.
Looks like B&S parts.

It doesn't matter...it would cost more to package and handle a set that only works for one exact engine than to throw a few pennies worth of extra gaskets in and cover the bases.

I have to give props to Mr. NOIZY553 for not falling into the Predator trap.
Good Luck with that rebuild.

Where's your engine? I do not comprehend "soon-to-be" engine unless you're sourcing a piece from here and a piece from there. Cool.


It's sad that almost no one, at least currently active members, knows what those gaskets are for.

Top row left: Crankshaft oil seal (flywheel side)
2nd from left: Crankshaft oil seal (PTO, ball bearing I/C engine--I think)

Middle row 3rd from left: Exhaust/muffler gasket
4th from left: Crankshaft oil seal (PTO side)

Bottom row 2nd from left: Crankshaft oil seal (Flywheel, ball bearing I/C engine)

The rest are indeed various extras for other similar engines or spares. They look like carburetor and exhaust gaskets for the most part.

From left to right...

Top row 3 and 5
Bottom row 3.

Look like carb and intake manifold gaskets.

Most of us do not need to prove ourselves, whilst others feel the need.
Piffle.

The way the post was worded, I assumed those were the leftover gaskets.
