Can anyone tell me about what I just bought? I don't even know what kind of an engine is on it (is it a Jacobsen)? I live near London, but I have no idea what the story on this is. Any insight would be appreciated. It's not seized, but the kick start gears are poor. The engine slides to put tension on the belt. It's in decent shape to my eyes, but we'll see.any insight would be appreciated.

That's a neat piece. I'd agree on the Iron Horse engine but don't have anything on the mower.

You have sent me a bunch of it, but I don't know if I have the one for this engine.  I'd have to check.
