Newbie with 10M6D

Hello all! Great site. I look forward to delving deeper as my time permits.

I just scored what I think is a 1967 or 1968 10M6D for $35 off CL.
Guy said it ran for 10 years for him and then failed to start this year. His engine guy told him it was bad points or the magneto. My abilities are limited, so I might have to take it to my own motor guy. Does this thing even have a magneto?

The Tecumseh motorplate says H60. I've been reading around, and have seen H40, 50, 55 and everything else, but no H60. Am I missing something?

I'm wondering about the spark plug. I did pull it and the electrode (which doesn't look fouled) has a splinter missing. Best guess on a replacement plug?

The 6 in the model number indicates 6 HP so H60 makes sense. You have a good deal there assuming everything else is in working order. You might consider looking into a cheap $100 engine if you can't fix it yourself. $100 for a new engine is probably cheaper than what a shop would charge you and switching out the engine is pretty simple.

Here are some really good videos that will teach you about taking those apart and changing points and condensers and such.

Use the search box on his channel and he has hundreds of videos about snow blower engines.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

OK, if you have problems getting your old engine running here are some links for the engine and the 25% off coupon. Hopefully you have a Harbor Freight local to you.
