I can't get the old tecumseh to come to life. One sputter and nothing since even with starting fluid. I have spark across the plug but it doesn't even attempt to fire. I'm hesitant to invest much in the old engine, has any one re-powered a MF5 with a new replacement engine? I've never attempted a engine replacement that wasn't with an identical engine. I have moderate mechanical and fabrication skills but not sure what I'm in for or what would be critical other than getting the same drive pulley diameters/configuration at the correct elevation. I don't mind a challenge but don't want to throw money at a lost cause either.
Any insight would be appreciated.
