Need illustrated parts and repair manual.

I inheritated a snowblower in a box.I would like to download a free illustrated parts and repair manual for a Tecumseh 3hp motor to put it back together. The tag on the outside says its a YTPXS.0985EF engine. With a displacement of .098. I've looked on line and I think it crosses over to an HSK600-TH098SA. Can you help me?

SOURCE: tecumseh 8hp HIGH REVING! snowblower


be careful, if the engine over revs it may just explode. These engines are very picky if over sped and easily blow up.
Your problem may be a broken throttle control rod, have look at that first. If the control rods are fine and in place it could be the fly wheel governor is worn out.

Hi - you can download manuals for all current and the vast majority of older engines direct from the Briggs website (owner/maintenance manuals and Illustrated Parts Lists) . You can also buy proper 'strip down and repair' manuals from Amazon among other places. Note - these are official publications and it's unlikely you will find them for free (they're illegal if you do!).

Go to this page:

and be sure to plug in your model number in the search box and be sure to check both the manual and illustrated parts lists options just below the search box. You will have to refine the exact model number for the correct file from there, but I'm sure that you will find what you are looking for.
A note about .PDF files: If you cannot view the file that you selected you need to download and install Adobe Reader on your computer first. You can get the free download here:

Good luck--and please provide feedback if this helps!

I have a new Troy Bilt Snowblower. My father ran over a large extension cord while blowing snow, which in turned wrapped the cord around the auger shaft ends. I can now only get one side of the auger to...

Your snowblower has 4 shear pins keeping the front auger safe. Use the manual to locate them if you are unsure where they are and how to change them. Since your snowblower is new I am going to assume you have the manual.
Your snowblower came with 2 spare shearpins. Check up by the handles and see if they are still there. If you don''t have them go to your local Lowes, Sears, or MTD repair shop to get new ones. DO NOT USE STANDARD BOLTS!

The drive shaft coming out of the gear box is one, solid piece all the way across the snowthrower so if one side is turning there is a 95% chance it's the shear pins.
Feel free to ask any other questions. I know Snow Blowers. Please remember to rate this answer!

Start buy checking the gear box to see if there is any cracks in the housing if there is then your going to need a new gear box assembly, sometimeswhat will happen is the auger will stop do to an object and the shear bolts don't break while the impeller is still triing to spin causeing the gears in the gear box to break.You can go to, then go to parts,then click where it says click here to enter Parts Radar, you will need to have your model numberyou can get the break down for your machine which will help in dismantle and puting it back together you will also be able to get the part number for any parts you will need. If you need a new gear box get the whole assembly not the indivisual parts. any other questions please feel free to ask.
