Photo 1965 Jacobson Briggs

Hi everyone, Iím still working on restoring my 1952 Clinton I posted about prior but as Iím sure with others new projects seem to find their way home from time to time. Today I found a 1965 Jacobson Victor 21 reel mower the seller said was a 1965 model. It looks original and complete and only require minor work to run. Iíve always wanted an old reel mower and this ones looked like one of the nicer ones Iíve seen in my area so $100 later it was mine. What kind of Briggs is on this and is there any work I should check into on the mower mechanics before attempting to use it?

Look for numbers stamped in the blower housing. I can see them next to the decal showing in the first picture.
You should find Model, Type and either Serial or Code numbers.
Model and Type will let you find manuals and IPL for your engine.
If it has a Serial Number, you will have to refer to a list (available on this site) to determine when it was made.
If it has a Code Number, you can read the date directly. YYMMDDxx
