Default Pincor engines

Anybody know anything about Pincor engines like when they were made? I've got an I&T small engine manual copyrighted in 1954 and it doesn't have Pincor in it.

I had a Pincor engine back about 57 that I took off A pincor reel type (pincor) mower. It was most likley over 10 years old then. I dont know if Pincor made the engines or just put their name on them.

Brian -

Pincor did make their own engines. I have one, an ALA. The company itself was located in Chicago. Sorry I can't help more. You might want to check the Antique Small Engine Collectors Club website, is now defunct.

These engines also went by the name of Pioneer. I have 2 of them with the Pioneer name on them. One looks to have been made in early 50's, and other in early 60's. Vernon

I remember the Pincor power lawnmowers when I was a kid. I don't remember any other small engines that looked quite like it. That was back in the early 1950's or so. An older neighborhood kid I knew made a lot of money mowing lawns all summer using a Pincor lawnmower. They were a pretty reliable piece of machinery.

Pincor was one of several small engine/mower companies that started up right around the end of WWII to cash in on all those new lawns in the suburbs.

They look a lot like a Briggs but the parts are not interchangable.

We had A Pincore mower in about 1950. It was O K except it didn't have A clutch and simply crashed two gears in and out. I could almost stand that noise if I filled the gear box with fuel oil instead of 30 wt. For some reason that made it shift easier. DAN

I almost forgot. I have A complete mower and two engines. One of the engines threw A rod at one time and has A large patch on the crankcase.

If you can locate a "SS-####" number, I can try and locate a year for you. I work for DESA International which bought Pincor Generators in the Early 90's, and while we don't have every piece of literature from all Pincor's, We do have some, and I will be happy to reference what I can.

They also made engines for Snowmobiles and mini-bikes at one time...
