I dunno, but you can still get some parts via Parts & Accessories | Shop & Find Lawn & Garden, Appliance Parts at Sears PartsDirect | SearsPartsDirect.com. I have an old Craftsman snowblower from that era that had the 7HP original motor replaced with a 4HP Tecumseh Snow King. Ran like a top for years, but it was a lot easier looking for Tecumseh parts than trying to do anything with Sears. See what kind of part numbers you get off the engine itself to ID the specific engine. You can get the service manuals for those for $10 or so as I recall.
