    I came across your posting on replacing the impeller seal, but I still have a few questions. I currently have my gearbox stripped down to the point where I am trying to figure out how to remove the impeller shaft from the gearbox. Please advise. Also, would I need to remove the impeller in order to change the seal. or would I remove the bearing end? My machine is a 1961 10ML55 with leaky seal.

    ELECTRIC/12V CHUTE CONTROL. Currently working on an electric chute direction control, with a left to right thumb switch, can be mounted on right or left. Dont think there is one on the market, ok, see how it works. lrmill01

    Shryp. Come to think of it even the Tecumseh would use more gasoline to blow my driveway than does the new OHV Predator 212cc. Since the Predator is 212cc and 7hp so 7hp/212cc =0.033Hp per cc so the Big Flat head 8hp Briggs is 319cc and if it made as much power per cc as the 212cc engine it would have to put out 10.533hp. The OHV engines are much more efficient than the old Flat heads and subsequently much more fuel efficient. I am glad that you agree with me that a modern OHV engine with Ball bearing crankshaft support is technologically superior to an old valve in block fat head with crank shaft bushings instead of bearings. I was reluctant to try and use the Flat head Briggs because of my prior experience with my Tecumseh flathead.
