Sears snow thrower

I have a Sears Snow Thrower Model 536.887990 and I know it has a Tecumseh engine in it. Can someone tell me what Tecumseh model engine it is? The Sears manual say it's a 9 Horsepower engine but none are listed on the Tecumseh web site?

Thanks
Bill

I was able to pull up your model number on sears website. go to www.sears.com/parts

Put your model number in the box and go from there.

All I could find on your machine was the Sears motor number and it is 143.029.003. Unfortunately I couldn't cross reference it to a Tecumseh number but the Sears number can still get you whatever motor parts that you'll require. If you ever need a parts listing on your blower, go to http://www3.sears.com/ and enter your model number and all the info for that machine is there.

Thanks for the info. I wonder why there is no cross reference?

Puey61 runs a small engine shop. He pulled your number up using his computer system. I wish I had his software.

Term is correct

I do have the luxury of being a shop owner, with all the books, software and knowledge of such. Specifically, I have PartSmart software that cross references Craftsman numbers.
