I have a craftsman snow thrower with a garbage 5hp (old) tecumseh motor, I am tring to find out if I can upgrade to a 7hp snow king (also a tec engine). also what is the difference from a HSSK to a OHV
i'm about to order the engine. The shaft is the same so i thought that it would work but before i drop the cash, can always use extra info. found HSSK= Horizontal Short frame Snow King. Just wanted to be sure on the mounts and that 'Short Frame' only means stroke length
I just swapped (yesterday) froma Horizontal Tecumseh Snow King to a Briggs & Strattion Overhead Snow Intek. The Overhead cam engine is a lot wider towards the bottom. It was a little bit of a pita but I had to re-route my chute control level way down and to the left. Not too big a deal but that was the main difference in my honest opinion. She gets a lot of torque too.
