been working on a snowblower.can't seem to find the thread i posted the other day so i started a new one.hope that's ok.
anyway it's a craftsman 8/26 and it dropped the rod off the crank.I'm getting ready to pull the head,since it seems like the only logical way to get the connecting rod replaced.
have to pick up a compression tool for the piston rings and order other parts like a head gasket and connecting rod assembly.

wish me luck I'll need it.

Any tips regarding the head and piston removal would be appreciated
Model 52950
4 cycle engine no. 143.696062

Smile tecumseh

thanks for your response Geo.
I believe it's a tecumseh but it's not written anywhere in my manual.
One thing I'm wondering about is how to push the piston up thru the cylinder after the head is off.Guess I'll cross that bridge when i get there.
Torquing the head bolts might be another question.Is that a must or just snug then a bit.

My browser must be acting up since i can't see a page advance here on the forum page.

Appreciate your help
