You have a Tecumseh HH120-120048B. 

 

The intake valve is obsolete and fairly scarce. 

 

The exhaust valve is $65 from me all day long.

May want to see if you can salvage the intake since its obsolete, alot of times they can be resurfaced.

Ran the number through my NLA distributors and had no luck either.

one of the major auto parts manufacturers used to list "some" small engines and industrial engines... Manley maybe?  I used to have a catalog from them/    The book I had, listed valves for such engines as Buda,  Waukesha, Cockshutt (which I know is really oliver)

and some B&S, Kohler stuff.... maybe if you can find a catalog from them or maybe Sealed Power, Perfect Circle, someone like that;

it may take digging thru the back section "buyers' guide" and measuring all the important stuff off the old valve to find one that will interchange.

As DT pointed out, I think i have heard of using an auto valve in the Tecumsehs, maybe from small block chevy? 

 

There is a Tecumseh group on Yahoo groups that maybe help to help.

 

Also, contact Brian at GTpulling tips, he may have some info.

Last resort if our sponsors cannot help you, find a used one on evilbay.

You could always get a set of good used valves and LAP them.There are a few used sets on Ebay for around $40.

old valves still need a spin on a valve grinder and then lap them in afterwards.
