Personally, I'm not sure - what make is the mower? Might narrow down the possibilities for the engine if we knew who made the mower. I think I see text cast into the wheels buy I cannot read it?

Muncie engine.

The shroud is missing on this engine and I think they were made by the Muncie Gear Works.

Bill, is that the same Muncie that made the famous 4 speed truck and Corvette transmissions for Chevrolet back in the 60s and 70s?

Bill is right. It is a Muncie Gear Co. engine. The same company that made Neptune outboard motors. They also made a four cycle air-cooled engine with a vertical cylinder that looks very similar to a Briggs model Y. I have the remains of one. The Muncie lawn mower engines are fairly scarce.

I have to agree with the rest of the posts, it's a Muncie. I have a complete engine like yours and complete vertical cylinder engine.I'd sure like a shot at buying the mower if your friend backs out. Carl

there is a decal on the handle i think it's Damasure.

it seems to be a well made machine the base is cast iron and the roller reminds me of the ideal mower i sold .
it is a lot easier to move around.

i have a feeling the missing parts might have been in some boxes at the sale as i bought a briggs engine block and found out the next day most of the missing parts were in a other box i had bought

Yes, I am fairly certain it is the same company that made transmissions for General Motors.

Definitely a Muncie, but I can't recall ever seeing one with a foot starter or that clutch like apparatus on the flywheel side.

It's not a clutch, it's a flyball governor going to the carb. The kick starter pedal is made of bronze! The starter ratchet is also very primitive. Tom Street
