I bought this engine off of a friend  and he thought it was an 8 hp Tecumseh off of a snow blower. Not really sure if it is an 8 hp or not.  I finally found a tag on the bottom side of the recoil housing with these  numbers.

 

Model  OSHK110

Family WTPXS. 3183AF

Displacement 318

DOM 8287

 

Does anyone know what Tecumseh engine this is?

I have had it running on the bench and seems to run pretty good.

Seeing the big pull start handle and lack of air filter I would have to say this is a snow king engine and for sure 8Hp at least.
Just my guess tho-------The ones I had were good cold starting engines.

Someone on here will tell you exactly what it is.

Pretty sure that its an 11 Hp. Usually, if you remove the zero, that's your horsepower.
BTW, Are you sure it isn't an Ohsk?

would that be the one that you offered me in the thread where I was looking for a starter for a smaller Tecumseh snowblower?

the 8HP ones  I'm familiar with, are the same "cc" size but an "L" head (valves in block)
