8 hp Tecumseh HM80 won't start

I have a merry mac wood chipper with 8 hp tecumseh (HM80; WTPXS.3182BA). I cannot get it to start. I have changed filter, fuel, oil, & spark plug. I've checked the spark & compression and both are ok. Any suggestions on how to get this engine running again?

I just bought a Snowblower from 1986, and it has a Tecumseh 8HP engine. It wasn't starting, so I changed the spark plug, cleaned out the whole carburetor, and put new engine oil in. It started right up.
By the way, does anyone know the CC of this engine? I've been looking for a few hours not and Can't find anything!

I have a Tecumseh OHH55 on a wood chipper. I replaced plug, oil, new fuel and cleaned up. I cannot get it to start. Carb was also cleaned. Any suggestions before I take to a repair shop.


Is fuel getting to the carb? Check the fuel line it may be plugged. The rubber deteriorates after many years and plugs up the line and or jets. Its always best to replace the fuel hose when you rebuild the carb. Have you checked for a spark at the plug?

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.
