With the number 321 in it's name, it's most likely a Jacobsen 321 engine. I think that was probably Jakes most widely used engine, and darn near impossible to kill. I have three different pieces of Jacobsen equipment with that engine.
You can search for an owner's manual and parts list, and you may have some luck finding one. I have actually contacted Jacobsen's customer service, and found that they do maintain what must be a fairly sizable archive of information on their vintage machines. You can contact them and provide the serial number. If they have something, they might just send you a pdf that will give you the part numbers that you can use to search for the things you need.
