Possible Repower???

Just found this one on Small Engine Suppliers


Not bad: But shipping really varies....so double check.

Anyone have any knowledge on these??? Thumbs up or down?


Would this work on a possible Bolens 824A repower?

They have some decent documentation for Tecumseh engines if you're in need of research/maintenance/repair official docs, but I've never ordered anything from them.

1974 Ariens 922008/922003 "Frankenstein", my dad's 1st new snowblower
1971 Ariens 922002/922003 "The Badger", recent addition, ready for snow
1971 Ariens 922002/922003 "Juneau", finally ready for snow
1971 Ariens 910962/910995 "Bill", SOLD 3/7/2019

I have one sitting on the shelf for a couple of years. It's an on-off engine, either it's on all the way or it's off. There's no throttle on it. I've looked a couple of times for the parts to add one, just have not gotten around to it. It looks like it's cloned off the Kawasaki engine. It's wider on the base than a Tecumseh 10, wider mounting bolt pattern. Can't say if it runs better or not, have not run this one yet.

I will add, if that price is right, I spent a lot more on this one but that's water over the dam.

I have a similar one I purchased about six weeks ago.

Bought from a different seller on the bay but the one I bought has a adjustable throttle but be careful as they are also offered with a 230v starter. Also had two charging circuits.

I think I paid $205 delivered.

Looks like a nice unit I was hoping to put it on a ST1032.

You said you had a newer 8hp Tecumseh. I would go with the Tecumseh over that engine anyday. Having no throttle isnt so good either.
You can take all the old white shields from your old Tecumseh and put them on your new Tecumseh and your machine will look like it always did. If you can, find yourself a 10hp Tecumseh off a broken snowblower with a good engine. That's how I got mu 10hp Tecumseh. I paid $100. Than I sold the auger gearbox on ebay for $100 which got me the engine free. The shields from the 8hp will also fit on the 10hp. The exterior of the engine is exactly the same, the 10 just has a bigger bore and piston. If your insistent on one of those new engines get the 301 Predator at harbor freight. With the coupon the price is also really good and those engines are of real descent quality, can run at 4050 rpm no problem, giving you a **** ton of power and it has a throttle. The 212 is ample to and would still have more power than the original 8hp Tecumseh but the 301 would be perfect for your machine. That Tecumseh you had that blew, it must have been its time, because I use blowers with Tecumseh's commercially and I don't check the oil every single time. So I have a feeling even if you had checked the oil, it still would have blew, it was its time.
The very best option is the 10hp, 358cc Tecumseh, if you cant ger thay another 8 like you said you had would be fine, the best alternative is the Predator 301.
If you were able to find an older Briggs L head 8 or 10hp winter engine, those are great too and Simplicity did use those on their blowers. But an LCT with no throttle, ahh, that would be my last choice and a last resort, this is my personal opinion.

That 291 offered by Small engines, is the same as the 291 LCT offered on select ariens blowers 28 dlx + (except) it does not have the idle down carb, but the idle carb can be purchased for 28.00 , as well like the one I replaced I took their old carb and put it on the new engine.

Just say'n..

I have many customers with LTC engines and other than operator error or neglect have not seen any real issues.
