Default Tecumseh Engines

Yes i agree Tecumseh Did make a good cast iron engine ive worked on
alot of Vertical and horizontal engines But one of there down fall
were They did not drill a hole in the connecting rod so it didnt get
the lubrication it needed to the center of the journal so it would get
hot a blow a rod they should of did the same design as Briggs &
Stratton and it will reduce blown engines but in the earlier days like
in the 60's they did drill a hole in the rod for awhile but they
noticed the engines were lasting to long so thats why they started not
drill the hole SO NEVER RUN A TECUMSEH ENGINE LOW ON OIL CAUSE YOUR
ENGINE WILL NOT LAST THATS MY OPINION
