Tecumseh troubles... Again

Recommended Posts

Got the Chinese carb installed on my HH60 and had it running decent. Tried to get it to idle by adjusting the idle screw..Well now it's a bear to start and smokes like a frieght train in the event it actually fires... Fuel shut off is suddenly stuck open as well. Had some  sediment in the fuel filter, which doesn't surprise me. 

Why won't it start now??:(

Some dirt/sediment got by the filter and messed up your new carb???  really should clean out the whole fuel system and replace the hoses and filter when you put in a new carb.

That's what I'm thinking.. I did replace the lines and filter. Just dealing with an old tank. Guess I'll acid wash it again

      Look at the used to be red wire on the left and you'll see a bunch of frayed rope looking stuff. I'm wondering if I can just snap the end off and slide a piece of heat shrink down over it and then re-terminal the end.
      Can't see why I can't do that. Just wanted to run it by you folks....

      As stated in another section my honey went and bought herself a 657 a few days ago. Sunday afternoon to be exact.
      Runs and drives quite well and had a very serious and non negotiable issue.
      It's Oliver green with Ford gray wheels.
      Other than that the work should be minimal standard stuff.
      Well of course she started tearing right into the disassembling of the lucky little tractor.
      We started to show the daily work being done to it and then realized we should really start a new thread in the proper location.
      So here's a few before pics as a reminder.




      Here's the end of Sunday results.


      And a pic from Monday nights work.

      After this was taken she found some spray on paint stripper and emptied the can on it.
      We left it on for 24 hours or so.
      And found red paint!!

      I am looking for an original set of Tecumseh decals for a 1968 era HH100 engine. I am looking for the 10 hp Tecumseh balloon decal, Solid State ignition decal, air cleaner decal and lubrication decal. If you have any of these for sale or know where I can purchase some please send me a message. Thanks!

      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.
