Anybody seen ones like these, must have made lots. Have had these for a few weeks just not much time to mess with.

Small ones engine

That Yard machine is not wanting to cooperate and run consistently any suggestions? Harder than a rock to start. I have taken the carb off and apart and cleaned it but did not replace any gaskets/parts. No jets to adjust. should I knock out the welch plugs for a real thorough cleaning, are replacement rebuild kits available.
I am completely Techumseh illiterate.

Large ones engine

which needs something over the carb intake.

Haven"t got any free ones but picked up a cheap Craftsman 8/25 the other day for it's good non smoking HM80. You can get some real deals in the summer and fix them up to resell in Nov.

I have a snowflite, looks the same but the engine was orientated differently.

I also have a little one that looks just like yours, except mine is a toro. I will have to get some pics for you.

You know, I suppose, that the large Tecumseh didn't have an air filter, just a tin box over the carb.

Your right, the dust is froze down in the winter so I've never seen a snowblower with an aircleaner.
Just a box to keep large objects from entering the throat.

There were about Eleventy Seven Million snowblowers that used the Techumseh Snow King engines.
Though they are no longer made, I understand parts should not be hard to find.

My Ariens bought three years ago still had a techumseh on it..
