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

      Hello All. Picked up this little feller here a couple days ago and just got around to wrenching on it last night. I cleaned up the carb, put a new plug in, new oil and fuel, and it doesn't want to fire. Checked the spark and I don't see anything. 
      Ran fine 2 years ago the guy said and I have every reason to believe him. I guess I have two questions:
      1.) What is on this, magneto? Where can I buy one to replace?
      2.) I have a Trailblazer 7 with a 7hp Tecumseh pull Start. Think I can pull that magneto off and use it? (Assuming it is indeed a magneto).
      As always, Thanks for the help!!

      Still can't get the lawn ranger dialed in.. got the new Chinese carb on and it's doing the same thing before I replaced it. The high idle screw seems to have no effect most of the time! I cleaned the valves and am picking up a set a feeler gauges tomorrow. just when it seems like it's dialed in it will start to sputter and smoke again! What next!??

      Finally got me a lawn ranger and picked it up for an awesome price!! Now to get it running good.  H60 Tecumseh won't run right. Goes from running great to running absolutely terrible and backfiring from the carb. I'm guessing the valves are messed up? Compression test rendered around 85 psi.

      Looking to get rid of all my Tecumsehs! The HH60 ran before I pulled it, just needed carb adjustments. Electric start! The other 2 appear to be H60s but are both in rough shape. One has a broken flywheel fin, stripped out oil plug hole and a seized governer. Other one has a broken crank or rod. Pm for more details! Pick up only, at this time.
