Flywheel swap?

Hi all,
I just got a 2005 mtd snow blower with a 5 hp Tecumseh for cheap. I'd really like to install a light on this. I looked through the parts diagram for my engine lh195sa and I see it can have a lighting coil. The only 5hp flywheel with magnets I found is 611203 which is pricy at $90-100 shipped. Will a flywheel from a 7-8 hp engine work??

I am pretty sure the flywheels are different. The 5 HP is considered a "small frame" Tecumseh and the 8 HP is considered a "medium frame" engine so they are not even the same family of engines. I would be lookng for a flywheel on or a complete engine on EBay or CL. Roger

Or you could use externally-powered lights of some sort. Stash a battery pack on it, and use LED lights, etc. Then recharge the battery later. Might be cheaper and easier than buying a bunch of parts to swap.

I swapped flywheels and alternators between two HMSK80s that I had, to put lights on one machine. But if I had to buy the parts to do that, it probably would not have made sense.

Tecumseh made both large frame and small frame 5.0 horsepower. You need to ID which engine you have.

With all the super bright LED's such as used for mountain biking, it would make more economical sense to mount one up on the blower or on your hat.. There are lights with run times of 4hrs+.

I use a Streamlight "argo hp" headlamp. I love it, light where you look, even backing up, or adjusting something , or when you walk back up the driveway for something for a minute, and super bright. Battery lasts about 25-30 hrs low, 5 hrs hi, and I get my batteries online cheap. Battery Junction .com..so cheap enough to replace them.

The meltdown is under way ...

For the cost of a new fly wheel you can get a pretty nice LED bike light. You can spend even more if you want.

With the new LED technology these portable Bike lights give you lots of flexibility.

There are now many on the market but some on this page can give you a taste of what is out there.

What part number are you using for a flywheel with magnets for the stator

All I could find is 611199 for that engine and it doesn't have the magnet(s) for the stator.

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

From what I've found 611203 is a factory 5hp flywheel with an 18 watt stator. From this motor LH195SA-67424V
