Tecumseh freebie

Recommended Posts

Simpleton7016
I think this is my first official freebie. I have gotten some good deals and of course Bob, Emmer and a few others have given me some 'parts' freebies, but this is the first real freebie. One of my neighbors unfortunately passed and his kids were cleaning out his garage and put this out on the road with a free sign on it. I hauled it all the way home (about 30 yards). I squirted some ether in it and she fired on the first pull. I could not believe it. I was expecting to have to pull and pull and pull until I was exhausted (like I am after 5 minutes with my ~new~ godforsaken weedeater), but no kidding...it fired on the first pull. I have little use for a leafblower so if someone out there is in dire need of a tecumseh engine, I will part with this for 'future considerations' (or an EZ Rake front mounted dethatcher, or posthole digger attachment). In the meantime, do any of you know anything about this little motor just from the pictures. I don't know much of anything about motors, much less the horsepower or mechanical history of this one, but maybe someday it will go in a go-cart for my little boys. I am guessing this is just a 3-5 horsepower. I will get number off of it later tonight.

Found it! Thanks Bob. H50-65456M SER 1239D Now, someone please tell me that this is a rare, one of one, prototype high performance, specially designed leaf blowing motor so that I can sell it and go in to work tomorrow and submit my resignation and live the rest of my days playing with my boys and souping up my tractors.

That's the correct motor for some of the smaller Wheel Horses, like the Lawn Ranger...

There's also a difference between the H60 and the HH60, one has a cast iron cylinder the other is aluminum. *Seems* to me it was the H60 that was cast iron, I'd look that H50 over pretty good. You could possibly get a coupla hundred for it on eBay. Wheel Horse guys use them alot. Whatever you do, good luck! sm06

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
