Did you buy the starter separate? If it came with the engine, it should already be hooked up. If you have to wire it yourself, there is a PDF file online (Tecumseh Technician's Handbook) that tells how to wire it up.

Can you replace the whole spark plug wire on the coil on 8hp Tecumseh without changing the coil


Not unless you cut the wire and splice a new piece on, which I would not recommend. A new coil should cost you less than $20 and is not hard to replace. See the attached YouTube video on how to do it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6bQrNr4lv0

Our HMSK 80-110 electric start snowblower starts up right away, but the idling is very rough. It runs very smoothly when it is engaged in snow throwing.


The Tecumseh snow motors are notorious for idling rough. Especially the last few years of production. Most service techs just say "live with it" But there are a couple of things you can do to help.
It is not a carb adjustment issue. It's usually a fuel, clean carb issue.
First, use a premium grade fuel without ethanol and a fuel stabilizer. This will give you the best fuel mix.
Second, Remove the carburetor shield and clean the inside and outside of the carb with carb cleaner. Even though you can't see the carb usually, they do get varnish build up and cleaning it will help some.
Third, Put the recommended amount of fuel system cleaner in the gas. I use Sea Foam brand. Over a tank full or two you will notice a difference in how the engine idles.
Fourth, Use a high quality spark plug and use a new one every year. Make sure the gap is correct.
Good Luck! Feel free to as any other questions you may have. Don't forget to rate this answer!

I have a Yerf-dog 3203 go-kart with a 6.5 HP Tecumseh engine. It's a pull start, and the pull cord broke. I can't get the cover off to fix the pull because the cover doesn't have screws. It has metal flat...


they are rivets, you will need a drill, the bit should be just big enough to fit the pin, once you start to drill it will come off. You can put screws back in once the repair is made. Good Luck Tim

First, try a new plug, then if still a problem ....

Assuming it's not pre-1985, then the ignition is solid state. To test - disconnect the 'kill' wire (usually black, but could be green or even red) coming from behind the cowling. Check for a spark. If OK, your problem is in the wiring. If still no spark, replace the coil.

If your engine IS ancient enough to have points, post back here and I'll advise.

Fuel Starvation - Float Bowl Carburetor
1) remove air filter assembly
*be cautious of tearing the mounting gasket. If it does tear, you HAVE to replace it. It is part of the priming system
2) remove the float bowl fastener. This is the main jet
3) carefully remove the float bowl, the rubber o-ring/gasket will not be able to be used if it is removed, you WILL have to replace it
4) using a spray 'carb cleaner'
spray up thru the center of the carburetor
spray and clean the main jet with cleaner and 'tag' wire
(tag wire is very thin, and can be used to clean the hole in the center of the main jet)
5) clean any debris from inside the bowl or carb body
6) re-install bowl and center bolt, air filter assembly

*if you need gaskets, your Briggs dealer can supply. The kit is cheaper than individual gaskets, and all the parts needed to finish the above repair are in the kit.

Tecumseh HM80 engine, new carb, won't run


Not the solid state ignition. If this were the problem the engine wouldn't start at all. There is some adjustment needed to the carb but without more info, I'm not sure what.

Switch missing on 10 hp Tecumseh engine that is installed on a


First I have never owned a Tecumseh Tiller. How that got attached to me I don't know. I do have a 10 Hp Tecumseh Engine that I wish to check out if it is good or not before I buy a switch. It has a Brown wire that goes to the low oil shut down sender. It also has a green wire and a black wire. All I need to know is which wires do I need to put together so I can check if the engine is firing or not.

Toro 724 snowblower won't start


One of two things will cause this. Either your piston rings have fried and your piston is stuck. The bearing on the flywheel is bad. Or actually one of thing, the crank shaft has broken. You willl need to take the motor apart all the way and see what is going on. If you take the flywheel off try to turn it by hand and see if you can turn it that wy. You also can try easier to check for first symptom is to make sure you are not in vapor lock. Remove the spark plug, turn unit upside down and see if you can get the motor to turn, if you can then replace the spark plug and it will start up. You can getvapor lock by running it low on fuel or the wrong fuel or running it to rich
