Wow, you must have a direct connection to the old staff at Tecumseh!

I musta spent a few hours trying to google that info to no avail, unless this info. was on this site. Thank you sir. I wonder if replaced with a 10hp. 302cc 14.45ft/lb would be a fair match as it is a OHV new type replacement?

It runs good but somehow I'm getting fed up with the vibration and the loud noise. At Princess Auto they have the Powerfist (Ducar) 10hp or the 14hp 420cc size for $350.00 and I'm just debating with myself if I should give it a go. The foot print of the 14hp is 1/2" wider X 1"longer as well the distance from CL of crankshaft to base is 1" higher. Are the belts sold in 1/2" increment?

If the crank is is one inch higher you will need a 2 inch longer belt. If you are buying general belts they will be in inch measurements with rare exceptions. Roger

I replaced a 5hp Tecumseh on my old MTD 5/22 and the OHV PREDATOR is so much quieter and smoother as well as much more powerful.

Isn't Tecumseh still out there making engines, just owned by some other company is all? I took the below info from Wikipedia:


In 2007, the company's former gasoline engine and power train product lines, which is what the company had been most known for, were sold to Platinum Equity LLC, which does business as Tecumseh Power. Tecumseh engine products at one time were sold in over 120 countries. In December 2008, the company closed its engine manufacturing division.[4] TecumsehPower sold off its Peerless transmissions business to Husqvarna Outdoor Products.[4]
On February 10, 2009, Platinum Equity LLC announced that Tecumseh Power Company had sold certain assets of its engine business to Certified Parts Corporation. This included the sale of existing and unfinished engine parts inventory, tools to make finished product and certain intellectual property assets. Certified Parts Corporation also assumed responsibility for warranty of previous engine sales.[5]
In an interview published by The Janesville Gazette on February 10, 2009, Certified Parts Corporation President Jim Grafft said "that he plans to move the engine operation to Rock County, Wisconsin, where he owns three facilities in Janesville and one in Edgerton, and will initially supply parts for Tecumseh Power engines. Grafft also said that his company could eventually resume engine production, which Tecumseh Power ceased in December 2008".
On September 1, 2010, Certified Parts Corporation (CPC) of Janesville, WI announced it had entered into an agreement with LCT, (Liquid Combustion Technology) of Travelers Rest, SC to jointly manufacture air-cooled engines for the outdoor power equipment market. The agreement provided CPC with engineering, manufacturing, and sales capabilities allowing it to reintroduce the Snow King line of snow thrower engines and other engines formerly manufactured and sold by TecumsehPower. The engines are exclusively represented by LCT, and sold under the Snow King, Lauson, and LCT brands and serviced exclusively by CPC and the existing TecumsehPower dealer/distributor network. Traditionally, the Snow King line of engines had powered more snowthrowers than all other brands combined.
LCT's horizontal 4-stroke gasoline engine product offering was extended by this agreement and allowed CPC and LCT to provide single cylinder and V-twin vertical engines to outdoor power equipment manufacturers. According to Larry Zeman, VP of Winter Engine Products for LCT, "This establishes LCT as an engine manufacturer of choice as it continues to engineer a new generation of power."
