A briggs and stratton 547cc equals what hp

CCs can't be directly correlated to HP. They are measuring different things. It depends on how the engine is tuned. You can approximate that small engines 1 HP = 30 - 32 CC, car engines are usually 1 HP = 15 - 17 CC. So, 16.5 HP or so.

I am looking to check and see if by the stamp on my kawasaki motorcycle engine you can tell me what year and model the engine is

The engine number is worthless. The frame number is the key. If your bike is 1980 or so, pray that it has 17 alpha numeric digits in the number. Les than 17 and finding the information requested is pretty hard. If it does have 17 digits, go to this website tombones49_296.gif

This engine is made for a "Self Servicing OEM" That means I can not get information on the exact spec of the model you have but I looked up a different spec that has the same basic hardware.
This engine has an igniter.
Call a local shop like or order online the kawasaki
