tech brigs power curves

there has been much discussion lately about torque and work today i did a little research on my lunch break.
the results of my little comparison are somewhat surprising.
the numbers for the tecumseh engines were obtained from microfiche cards that are 2 years old. they are the most up to date ones with that info on them we have .they have newer cardss but the horsepower and torque curves arent on them.
the numbers for the briggs engines was taken from a 2004 engine sales brochure.
every dealer will have these cards and papers but the numbers are somewhat difficult to find.
i was however determined to deliver the facts so here i am.
tecumseh first.and please note that not all engine numbers are available at this time to me.
hmsk 70 11.3 lbs of torque at 2450 rpm
hmsk 80 12.75 lbs of torque at 3000 rpm
hmsk 100 15.5 lbs of torque at 2600 rpm
hmsk 110 15.75 lbs of torque at 2500 rpm
ohsk 120 17.5 lbs of torque at 2550 rpm
briggs next... all ohv intek snow engines.
9 horse 14 lbs torque at 2500 rpm
10 horse 14.25 lbs torque at 2500 rpm
11 horse 18 .5 lbs torque at 2400 rpm.
i know this dosent include many of the engines we have but those numbers werent available to me .
but im not done just yet and i will keep posting about my finds.
i was led to beleive that the briggs had a lot more torque than the tecumseh but except fot the 11 horse one the tecumseh engines are pretty good on paper..
tecumseh has been working quite hard on a v twin L head snow engine that was supposed to be very emission friendly.not sure what has been going on with it but update schools are in a month so ill know more then.
please note that the tecumseh numbers were taken from a microfiche card and it was not in the best of condition .
i beleive the numbers are accurate but not positive.
later chris
specifications subject to change without notice...ha ha
