krankiev: my 5 horse snow king looks the same.. just smaller lol. runs well. it was a
replacement engine, wore out the briggs that was on it originally. Airens
blower. also that red thing you pulled out is sposed to shut it off, you
probably know that, it must either have a broken or disconnected wire. Or a
rusty ground connection.
geoff390: The motor on my minibike is an old tecumseh kirby and it is great. In my
opinion the only good motors that companies are making now are Briggs and
Stratton and Honda.
Dan Riewer: @kriegmeister3000 I will agree with you there sir! What a horrible design.
I'v never seen one that runs haha!
coolbluelights: Cool snowblower! we have a similar one we use at my job, it's got no
Dan Riewer: hows it work? dose it still run? these tecumsehs are actaully pretty cool!
Turbo231: Man...that motor looks just the one on our 2000ish Snapper 8HP...controls
and all. Hope you don't mind I posted a video response of it.
Dan Riewer: ha your funny.. not trying to be mean just showing you my point.. this sat
for 3 years! put gas in it, pulled it one time and it fired right up! just
showing that there not hard starting.. btw im not trying to make you mad or
something so i mean no offense or troubles i hope you have a good one
SpiritsoftheWolf: anytime dan, i will try to get a video of my snowthrower so you can see the
same engine i got like yours
rob kuhnke: @fordwillkillyou Mine runs starts first pull, but weak very weak.
SpiritsoftheWolf: does it puts out a lot of black smoke? if it does, sound like it got a bad
carburetor. what about the spark plug?
Journeyman: Keep going over them and learning! Every engine I tore apart I think there
was something I learned. Great to be a Gear head!
Dan Riewer: wow buddy.. shows how much you know.. in MOST cases yes.. but this is a
respectable engine! most tecumseh carbs are cheap POS. this carb is really
nice i like the design on the fuel bowl its really neat.. and what do you
have against tecumseh i would really like to know! tell me..
krankiev: It does sound like it needs some carb work. It was funny where you were
messing with the controls as if you had no idea what they do. Lol. I have a
tecumseh on a snowblower it's like a 4 horse snow king lol. That primer
will always feel like it's pumping air, because it is. it pressurizes the
fuel in the carburetor and pushes it into the engine.
Dan Riewer: HOLY!!! dude thats incredible!! 3 hours! :0
Dan Riewer: @gokartbuyer Your a idiot. You dont know what your talking about. If it
threw a rod. It wouldent hurt the operator.
sean fuctard: they are hard starting
Dan Riewer: yeah lol.. good point but we both know that i know what the controls do
lol! just kinda trying to make the engine run smoother thanks for the
comment though! :)
SpiritsoftheWolf: hey crapgeey, as long tecumseh engines have primers on them, they are ok in
the wintertime, because it don't get too hot, unlike the summer days
krankiev: Yeah lol I know you're no dummy XD
anthacdc: tecumseh also still make great engines dont you think
Dan Riewer: yup!! thats soo true! I actaully LOVE tecumsehs fuel bowl its really neat
theres a little button that you push and it drains the gasoline out of the
bowl its really neat briggs should take that idea! thanks for the comment :D
Dan Riewer: wow lol this one is from the early 90s yeah go ahead im allways open to any
type of response
gasman7777: just put it on your bolens as a temporary engine.
gokartbuyer: @fordwillkillyou its a tecumseh problem number one.number 2 its not worth
the gas you put in it.number 3 it will throw a rod eventuallyand proably
injure the operator,because of how it is positioned,you can paint a bull`s
eye right where the rod will leave the block.
Dan Riewer: Yeah thanks! id love to see the video! o btw i cleaned the carb today on
this and it was kinda dirty.. but it still dont run any better.. any ideas?
Thanks alot! have a good one
rob kuhnke: Love these old Tecumseh engines. As long as they aren't 5hp. Those suck ass.
SpiritsoftheWolf: there ya go fordwillkillyou.... got the snowthrower video i told ya about
mine is up and running, look just like yours, i will have another 1985
model snowthrower up later... enjoy
sean fuctard: tecumsehs suck
Bobby Flanders: u should mud romp with the bolens y dont u use it for that
Dan Riewer: true! thanks for the comment it makes perfect sense!
Dan Riewer: yup i should if my dad lets me
SpiritsoftheWolf: i got the exactly same engine you got on my snowthrower
SpiritsoftheWolf: heh mine still run, for an 8 year old engine.... it have not even broked in
yet, only have 3 hours on it
