Re: Universal 5411 or M15

Thanks Jim, I almost forgot why I cared, then I remembered I was considering replacing the old three engine mounts but I needed to know the proper engine weight which leads me back to which engine I have. Thanks again.

Yes, that site is incorrect. Looks like they did some copying/pasting and mixed things up. Here's a link to a similar history. Note the similarity to the wording. And the slightly different commentary about the M15.

History of the Universal Motor Company 4

The Kubota engine number your engine is based on should be stamped on the oil dipstick. The 5411/M15 is a Kubota Z-500.

Re: Universal 5411 or M15

The 5411 and M15 are essentially the same engine based on the Kubota Z-500 industrial engine. The 5411 became the M15 at the end of its production run. If yours is fresh water cooled, not raw water cooled, i.e it has a heat exchanger, it was probably converted at some point.

Universal 5411 or M15

I'm a bit confused when It comes to the Universal engine in my 1984 N-28 II. The original survey 10 years ago had the engine listed as a 5411. The dip stick is labeled Z-500 and its antifreeze cooled so its my understanding the engine is a M15 (16 HP, 45 in^3) not the 5411 (11 hp, 31 in^3). Are there other ways to tell the difference. (still cant up load pictures)
