Open Question

I suspect a head gasket problem with the Tecumseh LEV 80-120 engine on my Toro mower. Can you tell me what the compression spec is on this engine? I have a compression tester but don't know the spec. Thanks!

SOURCE: mower surging

let it surge, it will usually get better as it warms up. These 6.5 Hp engines are fine except they have an cheap badly designed carburator. Nothing can be done about this problem. They all surge eventually.

SOURCE: where is oil drain plug on toro 22'' mower- tecumseh engine

IF you do not see the drain plug o the side of your engine, than most likely it is located on the bottom of the engine you will most likely have to remove the guard that covers the belt if you have self propelled lawn mower and the plug should be under the guard. Good Luck

SOURCE: toro 6.5 tecumseh won't start

replace your spark plug. it takes a Champion J19LM. If you left fuel in your tank over the winter then drain your tank and your float bowl. Add clean fresh fuel and it should go if not you need to clean your carb

If your Toro mower came equipped with a Tecumseh engine, then the dipstick seal is a common place for oil to leak. Look under the right side of the red plastic cover that is on top of the engine for an engine ID sticker. Take the model and spec numbers from the engine and go to either your local repair shop, or go to www.partstree.com for your parts. This is a simple repair and can be done with basic hand tools and mechanical knowledge. This is a good time to change to oil, too. Drain, replace gasket, refill.
Good luck!

I prime it it runs for about 1.5-2 sec. then stops.


Assuming you have a Tecumseh engine, replace the primer bulb. Make sure you get the correct one, there are 5 different ones that will fit. when you get it from your dealer make sure you have engine mod. & spec. #
Also make sure the dealer gives you the correct one, not just one that will "fit"

No compression release; can't turn over


well if you can pinpoint the leak you may be able to repair it. if you test the compression in the engine you can tell if the rings or valve are bad. you need a specail tool to test compression, $45. let me know what you find
