The Tecumseh 5hp and 7hp I believe are the same block and if so it would be a drop in replacement, Only thing you need to make sure of is if the engine is a single or double shaft, some have a second shaft to run the wheels and they spin opposite directions so whichever it has it needs the same., If it has a single shaft you could put the Harbor freight Predator 212cc engine and get some good power. A lot of people on this forum have put them on there 5hp blowers and are very happy with them. You can get the engines for $100 when they get a sale which happens often.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

They will be on sale for $94.99 on the March 10, 11, 12 parking lot sale.

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)
Toro (51984) Hand Held Blower (For the light stuff)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
