Tecumseh HH60 swap H60
Going to take a HH60 from a troy bilt tiller to replace an aluminum block version. Change out all the tins to make it look a little original. Doing this on my Ariens 10000 series. Pics coming soon.
I took a briggs 5hp from an old front tine craftsman tiller and put it on my 32' 10000 series ariens. same pulleys and engine sheeve. the 5hp has worked better than the 7hp ever did. seems to have much more torque. not sure if its the design of the engine that was for the front tine tiller or what, but was much better. i thought it would be way under powered, but it went through the 3 ft storm we had 2 winters ago and the eod 6 ft banks without even a whimper. and it threw farther. it even seems to have more power than the new briggs 250cc -11.5 engine I put on my other blower. go figure
