Tecumseh Question

Recommended Posts

I'm just finishing up a Tecumseh 8hp.,there are some wires that i can't figure out ,they have something to do with the carb,but aren't actually attached to it.in line in the wiring there's a small round thing that must have some purpose,anyone know what these are and how do you know if they are working ? Thanks

Sounds like the on/off switch. I have a B/S push mower engine that is set up that way. Pull the throttle all the way back to shut it down(grounds out the ignition). To start, you must advance the throttle fully the other way to choke it. You can still adjust the engine speed any place between the two positions.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
