Motor ID help

I picked up a Simplicity 1080 walk behind blower today. It has a 10 hp Tecumseh on it, but I can't read the serial # on the tag. I'd like to try to find the manuals for the motor. I assume they used the same motor on a bunch of different stuff, so I thought maybe someone on here might know the #?

The HH100 is a cast-iron block engine and is a very different bird from the more common aluminum models. Simplicity never used the HH engines. What is the MFR# of your blower? I have a tech document that lists the engines for each MFR#. That model 1080 was offered from around 1979 up to around 2000.

Thanks Bob. There is a tag near the bottom of the blower housing, on the left side near where the motor bolts to the frame. But, it's old and grungy and very hard to read.

I didn't notice any numbers on the top of the blower housing when I was fiddling with it yesterday, but maybe I just overlooked them. I'll look again today.

id="quote">Tecumseh had a bad habit of stamping the numbers on top of the blower housing and then fastening the starter button module over it. Over time moisture and rust made those numbers a real bear to read.

      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!😁
