I have a Craftsman engine model 143.976606 that I need to know the Tecumseh model number for this engine. It is not listed in the cross reference section of the Tecumseh manual 692509. Also how do I tell if it is an overhead valve engine? All help would be appreciated.
The Tecumseh service manual that covers Vector (VLV) engines is Tecumseh part number 695578.
You will have to purchase one unless someone has one they will share with you. I don't have this particular manual and I have noticed most of the sites I used to get Tecumseh information from have either shut down or removed the Tecumseh info. I don't know if this has anything to do with their current financial problems or what is going on.
