Well I picked up a used Jacobsen mower to cut 3+ acres. I cannot find any model number or information on the engine. THe water pump blew and I am trying to find information on both the tractor or engine. It is a Ford engine though, 4 cyl.

Can anyone give me some info. Thanks. Here are some pictures for reference. If there is a manual out there I can download please send me the link

Wow that is a good size mower you got. Especially with it having a 4 cyl Ford in it. I don't know the answer to your question either but i am sure someone on here will be able to help you out. I am betting that the motor used in you Jacobsen was used in a lot of other equipment and should be fairly easy to get parts for once you know the model.

I was told that it may have been called a Pinto Engine. THis is all I know. I have it up and running and hope to keep it going until winter. I hope to pull the engine and rebuild it. The bidy is in great shape but it looks like the previous owner changed a few things. I may be wrong.

Unless very early ones were different, the Ford Pinto engine was overhead cam, belt driven.

Thats an industrial engine. It sure looks the same as the one in my dads skid steer loader. I don't know the brand of loader but I think its a German made engine, or at least German engineered. I been wrong before. :-)
