This is what that the sears breakdown says for that engine "This part is no longer available through the original manufacturer. No authorized substitutions have been identified." Looking at the breakdown that looks to be a older sears unit . You may very well not be able to get an engine that crosses . Some where on the engine there should be tecumseh numbers, it should be stamped into the housing etc. your not going to get anywhere with that sears number. the place to start is with the tecumseh #
The information in this one was the most helpful for me. Check out page 6-8 to get some idea as to what the model# is and what they mean. I first just wanted to look at the Craftsman to Tehcumseh engines chart. Later when I didn't find what I wanted, I began reading some of the intro to see if they gave an abbreviation explanation then kept running into good info I needed. My mower, the Craftsman Eager-1 6.75hp Model #917377970 is 10 years old and has engine 143.3776712. I had to change the crank shaft which bent $70.00 for the crank an doing it myself was better than $450.00 for a new motor or mower. This link helped expand my knowledge of the types and abreviations in other sites and repair questions. BTW I just ordered a carb bowl kit from "Pats small enigine Plus" (expected delivery 10 days-Got here in 3. Here is the link:
I also have a Craftsman engine that I am trying to cross reference to Tecumseh model numbers. The Craftsman model number is 143.015502. I checked the cross reference charts in the back of the Tecumseh 3-11HP book, but those charts start with numbers higher than mine (143.201032 and higher). Aren't there any Tecumseh numbers stamped anywhere on their vertical engines? Can you cross reference the Tecumseh model number using the engine family number (YTPXS.1951BB). Any help?
Thanks Junebug. That's a great help. I would love to have a copy of that chart for future. Would you be able to send a copy my email?
Sure, I'd be happy to if I had your email address. I clicked on your profile and got this:
