Have you diagnosed the spark issue on the original engine? I think it would probably be cheaper trying to fix the problem than to buy a replacement engine....
I have to agree. No matter what the spark problem is, it would probably be cheaper to fix the spark issue. It could just be something that is getting overlooked and could cost you nothing.

The Wide base oil sump that is almost 4 inches wider and 3 inches deaper.And the engine is just over 4 inches taller than the TDA10D Wisconsin that was in my 1050.
You could use a shallow sump block out of a cub cadet if you can find one.Flat bottom,Shallow sump.The deep sump or (camel hump sump) will not work unless you get creative with your mounting.

If you do choose to do a repower with a 1" shaft motor, you should be able to use a pulley from a tube frame that used a 1" shaft, such as a 1050. I have a few spare pulleys here at the shop that I could sell.

I did an ome test on the stator and it was 437 which according to the Tecumseh manual I have means that the stator is good. I did an ome test on the ignition unit and it is just over 5 thousand which according to Engines&Magnets is in the exceptible range. I have been pull starting the engine the starter has been removed as well as the battery and voltage regulator. I just wanted a simple tractor. Kill swich is on the side of the engine now.
I had it running agine the other day for about 5 min. and then it lost spark again. More than anything I am getting frustrated with the engine. I am looking at an 8 HP Wisconsin for 50 bucks. Any thoughts?

I have a HH120 in the shed that came off an old sears suburban tractor. the SSI quit on it too. There is supposed to be a way to use it ( SSI module) and a coil to make spark again, but I never tried it.I jusr went and found another motor from an older sears suburban that had points instead of the SSI and repowered with that.
If you can, take pics during your repower to show the all the gang how it is done. Keep us posted!
