Tecumseh Snow King Engine

I recently bought a new Toro 826 LE snowthrower. It comes with a Tecumseh Snow King 8 HP L Head engine. The engine model number is #LH318SA. I downloaded the service manual from the sticky post at the top of this forum, but the engine model numbers don't correspond to mine. Is this the correct manual for my engine...and if it is, which model number would be the closest to mine? I used the link below:

Thanks!

Oh, I forgot 1 more question please....some say they don't use shear pins in this unit...but they sure look like there are shear pins in there to me?

The majority of the info in the service manual will apply to your engine, I cannot be sure of the torque spec's but your engine appears to be pretty much the same as an HM80. There may be a few specific differences mostly related to specifications, but general information will be the same.

I don't know about the shear pins, never get to work on snow blowers where I am located....

Should be one of each side of the forward auger? Usualy located in the middle of the auger on each side.
