Ariens 1128 Engine

Hi,
I’m going to look at a 2002 or so Ariens 1128 model # 924334 .Sheet metal is really nice, but it does not run.
It seems to have a LH Tec 11 hp engine on it,I believe it is an overhead valve set up.

Can I get your opinions on this motor?
Are there any issues with these ?
Can I just replace the Tecumseh LH OHV with a Tecumseh 10 hp flathead if needed

I am only familiar with Tecumseh flat head 8 and 10 hp old motors.

Thanks

Ariens 924024 8 hp 32” now a 10 hp
Ariens 910008 7 hp 24”

I like tecumseh more also but after buying a new machine with the LCT it seems like a good engine. New parts are just as easy to get for them

Question

Replacement engine? When did Ariens begin using LCT engines? (FYI I understand they're not a bad engine) It probably originally came with a Tecumseh.

Correction , parts supplier on net says it’s a 11 hp Tec Lh engine OHV.
Here is a picture of the engine

Ok. You had me going there for a minute. I didn't think a 2002 came with an LCT engine. That's why I thought it must have been a replacement engine already on it. It's all good now.

Well, brought it home today.
The motor is a Tecumseh 11 hp OHSK 110, with what I believe to be a broken connecting rod.
Time for a tear down, and see how bad it is inside.

Any comments or points of wisdom are appreciated.

Usually they knock a hole in the side of the block when they let go. What makes you feel it's a rod? Not turning freely? Noise? ?

Pulling the starter it is loose and has a knocking noise as it turns.
Removal of the spark plug and turning it over ,it has no compression.
Inserted a pencil ,it did not move while turning it over.

I’ll remove the starter tomorrow and look for a crack or hole in the case.It is full of clean oil.
