Can someone help me with a Tecumseh cross reference?

I trying to replace a Tecumseh engine HMSK80-155699W with another available type of engine. Can someone help crossover reference with this? Maybe a Craftsman or B&S?

Why would you want to replace the best ever snow engine made with something else? What is your trouble? Is yours not worth a rebuild? Craftsman does not make any engines...or equipment...or tools...it's just a well known, highly recognized name the smart people at Sears, Robuck & Co. came up with. At least you did not suggest a China Freight engine!

The engine block is cracked and I can't find a replacement. Any ideas?

As far as I know the block is not sold as a spare part. At that point you're looking for a new engine. Where is the block cracked? If it's in the lower oil pan area that can welded back but if it's in the cylinder, cam or crank bearing area then I'd toss the engine. The easiest would be to just replace it with the same or similar Tecumseh engine instead of trying to go with a different brand. I might save the coil and carburetor off the old engine as spare parts for the new one.

The block, I'll bet is cracked right behind where the starter motor mounts up. A new cylinder block is available, part number 35385, but you may have difficulty finding one. But, more importantly, how much internal damage has occured?

I'm assuming on a snow thrower, hence the model ID of the engine...HMSK80 = Horizontal Medium Snow King 8.0-horsepower.

Sorry puey61, I didn't make my self clear at all, I meant manufacturer and model number of the equipment. At small engine you can put in the equipment and it will give you replacement engines. Have a good one. Geo

Don't go by that link geo provided, that aged Ariens would never have had an 8-horse...either 5, 6 or 7-horse. The website's information is incorrect.

This engine was used on our model 932101 (824E) manufactured in 2000-2002.

Thank you,

Yes, a model 824E will have an 8-horse engine. The unit pictured is a pre-1972 model, not an 824E.

thanks for the info

I pulled the engine apart and the casing block was cracked by the connecting rod so I'm going to replace the block and the rod. Everything else looks good. Thanks for the help!

Inside an engine is not somewhere you want it to "look" good. You definitely want to measure everything to the thousandth. Even the slightest wear out of the allowed specification range will have you pulling the engine apart again.
