Question about Tecumseh Horizontal Tiller Engine 8 Hp, 1" X 2 57/64" Shaft, Modelno. Hm80 - 155656x

1 Answer

I don't know what oil type to use for a Tecumseh 8.0 hp engine

I recently bought a Troy-bilt snow thrower model 42010 and I want to change the oil since it has not been used for several years. I do not have the engine manual and don't know the required engine oil type. Also, is the gas that has been sitting in the gas tank still ok or do I need to drain it and if so how do I do that?

Thanks, John

    I'm trying to help my neighbor change the oil on his Ariens 520 snow blower with a Tecumseh Snow King engine. He can't find his manual, so I need to know what type of oil to use, and where the drain plug is located.

Need to find correct spark plug for Troy-Bilt #42027 Snow Thrower.


Several engines were available, you need to look for the number on your current plug - easiest method.

otherwise, you will need to give the motor manufacturer and nameplate info (Tecumseh SnowKing 8HP?)

Heres a link to a video showing replacement of the most common primer bulbs on tecumseh small engines, keep in mind that there are a few different size of primer bulbs that look almost the same, so you would have to go by your engine model and go from there.

I want to change the oil on my Yard Machines snow thrower with a 10hp Tecumseh engine and can't find the engine manual. What kind and how much oil should I use? Thanks - Zelmo


Zelmo use 10w30 weight oil and just put in enough to reach the full mark. In an air cooled engine I highly recommend you use Full Synthetic oil. It performs much better than conventional oil in an air cooled engine. Change the oil once a year.

Oil blows out of tube


You either have a head gasket going bad or your piston rings are shot which causes air to go down into the crankcase building up pressure which exits through the breather tube.
