Sears 536.918100

Greetings, this forum is very welcome. I have the model mentioned above and wondered if anyone knows of an engine that can replace the one installed? I'm fairly certain that the valves on mine have died, when I pull the start rope there's little resistance. I'd like to just replace the motor and continue using the machine, it really is a great little workhorse. Thanks!

Rick

If the engine is a 4 horse it's likely a Tecumseh #HS40-55519F
Can you post the engines numbers ? There might be a series number after that of four or five numbers too.

Do you want another Tecumseh to bolt in or something like the $99 Predator from HarborFreight that you might need to tinker a bit to get it to fit

Hi Rick, welcome to SBF, and thanks for bringing your question to us.

Like Kiss4aFrog said, there's a lot of folks opting for the Harbor Freight engines to re-power their snow blowers. You might want to take a look at some of the other posts in this forum to see what others have done, and what the have to say about their experiences.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

Welcome to SBF Cantus67!

It would cost next to nothing to pop-off the breather to inspect the valve clearance/springs & pull the head for decarb, reseat & a new gasket.

I have a '72 3.5Hp Tec (link)... one of my favorite small engines...one that my dog can start it
