Question about Craftsman Heavy Machinery

Open Question

Craftsman 247.799630 with engine 143.966503-Tecumseh OHH55-69020B.What is the purpose of ground wire part no 110A?

I bought a Craftsman chipper Shredder Vacuum off Craigslist with a non starting problem. It's pretty clean and doesn't appear to have many hours on it. I've been troubleshooting it and it's getting spark and fuel but won't start. I'm thinking it must be a partially sheared flywheel key but not 100% positive that's the problem.

SOURCE: 9hhp craftsman chipper shredder won't start

Squirt a couple of spoonfuls of oil into the spark plug hole to increase the compression as it has been sitting so long. Also squirt a little starting fluid into the carb. and give it a shot I think it will start. Hope this will. donnyb60

SOURCE: Can't start Chipper

Unplug the spark plug wire FIRST.  DO NOT SKIP THAT.  Then, WITH THE SPARK PLUG WIRE UNPLUGGED AND DISCONNECTED AND NOWHERE NEAR THE PLUG TIP, get a good sized stick, and try to turn the cutter wheel assembly in reverse.  I suspect you have a piece of wood stuck in there, and it won't come loose unless you turn the thing backwards.  You have to disconnect the spark plug because the engine could fire when you turn it.  Even if it doesn't start, one good kick could hurt you pretty seriously.  So, go unplug the spark plug and do your thing.

SOURCE: looking for manual for craftsman chipper

The manual can be found HERE.
On the left side of the page, under "Browse Subcomponents" you can use your RIGHT mouse button to open each page in a seperate window. This reduces the use of your BACK button, and personally, I find it more convenient.

Hope this helps.

How have you determined that there is no spark? Have you used a type of spark tester?
What is the condition of the plug. Brown or dark brown is OK. Black or silver is NOT Ok.
If you do not have a spark tester, remove the plug, and with it connected to the wire,
find a portion of metal around the cylinder that you can ground it on, and then pull the rope.
If the plug is black, you may see spark, but you should replace the plug.
*** PLEASE NOTE ; if there is excess fuel in the cylinder or on spark plug, it can catch fire, so be carefull to cover the hole with a heavy rag so that any fuel cannot be exposed to spark plug durning test !!!!

That age of unit should have electronic ignition, so if there is a 'no spark' condition, I would double check safety switches that are found on snouts, shrouds, bags, discharge chute, ect.
Get back with me on how this issue works out.
thanks, rwvanlue

Need new air filter for a tecumseh shredder chipper 10 hp


You can look up the air filter with the model number and order it over the internet from a website such as partstree.com, but there are others. Or, you can get the model number and go to your local small engine repair and parts shop. Mine had it on the shelf. If your chipper/shredder is like my 8 HP Craftsman with a Tecumseh engine, then as you are looking at the engine, look on the left side of the shroud or cover and way down low on the curved portion is a label with the model number on it.

I hope this is helpful for you.

Have a Troy-Bilt Chipper/Vac model # 47282 5hp sp, the Carburator needs to be replaced, I cannot find a part # for it, or where one can be purchased, please help


I believe the carburetor part number for your model is 632631. I have the same TroyBilt chipper/Vac. It has a Tecumseh H50-65582W engine. A good parts diagram can be found at
http://www.outdoordistributors.com/pdf/Tecumseh/TECUMSEH-MODEL-H50-65582W-PARTS-LIST.pdf
If this is the right part, you can buy it at Jacks Small Engine parts for $79
Good Luck!

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.

I will try again here.
1 wire link from the top hole in the governor arm to the throttle on the carb. There should also be a wire link with a spring that goes from the Governor arm to the speed control handle.
