Question about Tecumseh Horizontal Tiller Engine 8 Hp, 1" X 2 57/64" Shaft, Modelno. Hm80 - 155656x
The recoil starter will not turn at all
If the engine is infact seized, then it will have to be re-built or replaced. It was probably run with very low or no oil at all. You may be able to get a short block for your engine. All you would need to do is reuse your cylinder head, flywheel, carburetor, ignition modual, recoil houseing, fuel tank, governor linkages and controlls. The engine block and all internal parts would be replaced. It is far cheaper to just replace the engine rather than re-build it unless you are able to do it yourself and save the labour cost.
