Water?? I guess my Dad should have had Teckys instead of Kohlers. Back in the early 60's, after watching him put water in that tank thingy under the hood of the car, I decided to help him out by putting water in that tank thingy on the Wheel Horse. That's when he learned that the water will reach the carb only at the furthest point from the garage on his 10 acres.

It's the end(seh)is what people get creative with. 

I've heard it...see, say, sah. 

Correctly, I think the(seh)is pronounced "ahh"

To me it's...Tecums-ahh.  indian-1.gif

      I'm working on rebuilding HH100 and trying to be as attentive to details as possible with my restoration. The picture below was of an NOS Raider 9, which is very similar to the tractor I am working on. The piece in question is highlighted by the yellow arrow in the picture below. What is this metal hoop on top of the engine called and what is its purpose? I have seen some tractors with it and others without. It seems useless to me and likely to be discarded if someone ever rebuilt the engine. I can't seem to find a good reference to it in the online HH100 parts list, at least not anything that gives me a part number to look up. Any insight into this would be appreciated.

      As the title suggests, I'm at a crossroads for a '74 HH100 (10hp) cast iron tecumseh sitting on my shelf.  
       
      It looks like it was once part of a generator or welder (seller's pic below).

       
      With a decarb, valve job, tank / carb cleaned and a new head gasket, it runs smooth, no knocks/smoke and has nice throttle response. 
       
      The bore and ringgap are in spec. 
       
      The only downside is that the crank is hacked off (I assume it was a tapered shaft anyway) and there's no keyway.


      What would you do?:
      Buy another crankshaft and possibly a connecting rod? Have a keyway milled in the existing crank and add a shaft adapter (1 1/8")  
      Here she is getting acquainted with her cast-iron K181 cousin.

       
      I think she'd make a fine power plant for a wheel horse roller someday!

      Whole or parts, Tecumseh HH120 engine, was on a 1974 C120A Wheel Horse.
      The engine turns over and shows 50lbs on compression gauge using a weak battery. I have not had it running.
      I have the air cleaner tins, not shown.
      Let me know what you need. Pay the shipping and a few bucks for my time and its yours.
      Joe
      I have to add appropriate pricing for the parts on the engine, (per the rules)
      Air cleaner tins, $10 + Shipping
      Starter $15 + shipping
      Block $40 + shipping Turns really smooth, bore and valves look okay, I think this is a pretty good short block.
      Engine Tins, $15 + $13.50 shipping
      Fly wheel screen $10 + shipping.
      Carburetor $10 + shipping. (I am not sure of it's condition).
      Stator $17 + 7.50 shipped to US
      Fly Wheel $15 + $13.50 shipping
      Ignition Coil
      Something you want and need send a PM
      thanks,
      Joe
