Yardman Snowbird 7020-0

Hi,had and used this blower for over 40 years. Engine is shot. Can't find a engine that will fit. They all hit the shoot arm and handle. If anyone knows what engine will fit I would really appreciate it. Yardman Snowbird 7020-0 with a 6h.p. Tecumseh.Thanks

Another Tecumseh is the obvious choice. Are you able to relocate the chute handle? A lot of people go that route.

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

Welcome to the forum Jim


What are the numbers off the blown Tec engine that fits ??
When you say "blown" are we talking about the connecting rod through the side of the block ??

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

Hi H60-75213G. Brought to a repair shop. No compression. He said it would cost too much to fix. Been looking for a used engine, but can't find one. He said it has to be a L engine to fit. Bought a new one from harbor freight, Over head valve in the way. Picture above.

just went through the same sort of deal with an ariens repower with an ohv engine,and its do-able . i over thought it wanting things to stay original, but was put back on track by another member with a gentle " get creative" !!
