craftsman 12 hp engine id

I have a craftsman garden tractor that is about 10 - 12 years old. My key flywheel key is broken and I need to order a new one. I am assuming the engine is a b/s. On the engine cover i found the numbers as follows....143 386012 8041d

I went to b/s website to look for parts but their site is not recognizing my numbers......

I have the same tractor and mine has a 12hp OHV Tecumseh engine.

You might want to try sears web site with those numbers.

All Sears engines that start with "143" are Tecumseh engines.
Sears # for the flywheel key is 32589 which is a Tecumseh number and any small engine shop will have them in stock. Sears says $3.14 for the key. In my shop, I sell them for $1.00.

I believe all Sears / Tecumseh engines have the #'s 143-666xxxx. That is the number you are looking for.
