Jacobsen Pacer 18 Engine

4118 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  S-Engines NW
I recently bought an Pacer 18"" engine on ebay. It turns over, has spark and all in all in pretty good shape. I know I can get it up and running but need info on things like:
-Compression ratio
-Oil-fuel mixing ratio
-Plug type and gap
-Torque specs
-location of points (if there are any)
and any other info you may have. If I could get a hold of a copy of the service manual that would help tremendously.

Thanks in advance.

This engine is similar to the engine on my Jacobsen Lawn Prince, I mix 40:1 with 93octane and Echo Power Blend Oil.

I set my points to .020"
I set my plug to 0.030"

My points were under the flywheel, under a cover.
