Bigger must be better.

Both these are from heavy horizontal cast iron motors. One is a 12 hp. Tecumseh HH120, and the other is a 10 hp. Briggs 243431. The flywheel of the tecumseh is practically half the size of the briggs. What a difference brand makes! Bigger must be better right? ?

I've never thought too much of Tecumseh's, to me they are junk. The older ones seem to have a better track record than the newer ones do. In my experiences, Briggs and Strattons have always been the best engines overall. Hondas and Kawasakis might run better, but they are expensive to work on. Kohlers are in the middle, I believe, because those engines are not common around here and they are considerably more expensive to work on than Briggs, but less than Hondas and Kawasakis. Also most places carry Briggs parts, so that is another factor in picking an engine. Do yourself a favor, use the Briggs.
