Question about Tecumseh Horizontal Tiller Engine 8 Hp, 1" X 2 57/64" Shaft, Modelno. Hm80 - 155656x
I have a yard machine snowblower, it was just overhauled because I left gas in it for 2 years which turned to varnish, so all the lines and the carb were clearned. I just tried it today it worked for 10-15 minutes then shut down, like it ran out of gas, but there was plenty of gas. I tried to start it again, and it started and ran for 10 seconds. Now it just keeps turning over with out starting. What am I doing wrong This has an electric starter. t has a Tecumseh engine
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.

Operate the Engine Unitl it Quits and then Check for Fire to the Plug.
If No Fire, then the Ign Coil/Module Requires Replacing.
Hope this Helps.

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.
