Noticed that Ariens and Toro have both switched to Briggs and Stratton engines. I also thought there was a basic parts section on the Tecumseh site which seems to be gone.

Tecumseh went bankrupt and ceased producing engines last December.

Someone (I can't recall who) purchased their assets and will be providing parts, and perhaps engine in the future, as I understand.

Bummer, just bought that Snow Blower last year. Everyone I talked to said get one with a Tecumseh engine. There wasn't much choice though, seemed like all the big players were using them.

I'm not overly pleased with the way it runs; not very smooth, but the new carbs can't be adjusted. However, I it is a new Snow Blower so I need to keep it for a while. Do you think parts will be easy to get especially considering that they were such a big player?

Tecumseh engines are good engines, don't listen to anyone that say's otherwise. The bad press usually comes from individuals, who can't figure out how to fix them, when they break.

The emission carburetors run pretty lean and may appear to run rough, but when a load is applied they will usually smooth out. Parts have not been too much of an issue, and there are plenty of aftermarket parts for many of the engines as well. Tecumseh had one of the most popular engines used on Snowblowers.

30yearTech, thanks for the info!

Since we are on the subject. Just curious (if newer parts become hard to find) will the older adjustable carbs (abundant on ebay) fit a newer (last year) motor?

Yes, however you would have to make sure you got one that is the correct one for your engine displacement, as jetting and venturi size may be different.
