imperial 26 jacobsen 2 stage tecumseh engine

i have no idea what model engine is on this thing i have done a complete overhaul new gaskets and paint. my great grandfather gave this to me in peices so im basicly guessing how this engine goes together if i could i would love to find the model number and get a manual but the one problem is none of the markers that are stickers that have the model numbers on it are gone they werent there to start with so dont call me an idiot ha i need to get this engine running by the end of thsi school year for a class called engine tech so all the help i could get would be great i have documented all the numbers staped on the engine and i might have a problem my psiton has to like pits on the sides around the egdes and i will not let that stop me so if anyoe has any information please tell me
thank you

Is this a snow blower or a mower? I guess by 2 stage you mean 2-Cycle.

There are two 2-Cycle Tecumseh manuals at the link below. Download them and see if you can identify the engine you have.

The description you just gave is for the snowblower (2 stage). Do you know anymore about the engine other than it's Tecumseh - maybe the HP or anything along those lines. Maybe if you could post a picture of it also, it would help.

Have you gone to the Tecumseh site and downloaded the manuals? They have a download that covers a number of different engines.

The engine info should be stamped in the metal engine shroud just above the sparkplug, if the engine has been painted it may be covered up. Have a good one. Geo

I merged this thread with your first one. Please do not start new threads when the subject matter remains the same.

I provided you a link to Tecumseh manuals in an earlier post. Then I understood your engine to be a 2-cycle.

Understanding your engine is a 4-Cycle go to the link below and download the manual. I am confident this will be the manual for your engine. Look through it to identify your engine.

I don't think there is a engine manual any more specific than the one Airman provided. It is the Tecumseh engine manual. Have a good one. Geo
