More power

Hello all.
I have a Deutz-Allis 8-28 1691553 ser# 010932 which I believe is the twin to the Simplicity 870. How old is my machine, anyone please? Anyway, mine has the original engine that came with it HM80-155209M ser# 7230D. For about $100-125 I can get my hands on a Snow King engine that's on a MTD, HMSK105 ser# 159908B (H), engine family 1TPXS.3582BF, displacement 358, DOM 1289 D.
Would this be a considerable improvement for power and worth the cost?
Are the Snow King engines that much better?
The DOM, is that 289th day of 1991 or 2001 or 2011?
and most importantly will this fit my frame and be a direct bolt on.

Mine is single did not get to see the snow king yet. I tried calling Tecumseh bad customer service apparently you can only speak to their authorized shops not them directly with any kind of info
Researched online both are single shaft.

I believe HM/SK 80 - 110 are all the same block so the new engine should bolt right on. Not sure how much of a difference you will see. Probably depends on how used the engines are.

I would say 2011 is going to be too new for an L-Head.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

What makes the "Snow King" a better engine?

The Snow King was made for winter, no air filter and a carb and linkage cover to help prevent icing and a primer bulb.

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

And honestly, the older ones made before they started branding them snowking were basically the same. They also had primers, no air filters and heater boxes. Maybe some really early ones from the 50s-60s were different.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Putting the name "Snowking" on it was like adding "New and Improved".

you should probably find more power... more torque yes.. but the question is.. do u find YOUR engine to be lacking??? how many CCs does yours have?? ince these are both flatties.. if your comparing a 318cc 8hp to a 358cc 10.5hp engine.. and yes im aware the HP number means almost nothing.. but the torque output both these engines make is a good difference.. for the money however.. see if u can find something a little cheaper.. or maybe even 11hp or 12hp techumseh engine for the same price maybe?
