If you can find a Tecumseh HM80 or HM100 with the cast iron liner that would be your best bet.
A little more power and a longer lasting engine.

A lot of the 7hp Tecumsehs were replaced over the years with the 8hp used in the MF8's. I don't remember what the exact problem was they had but they didn't seem to last.
I don't think they were cast iron sleeve?

Mf8,s used the HM80 engine aluminum block with cast iron liner and almost 4cid bigger, much better engine.
