Latest Ariens seizes up.
Tecumseh 7 hoss flat head . It has points, so best guess is that its a 70s era Snow thrower. I finally got the carb set right . It stalled,so I tried to re-start . I pulled it over a couple of times, then the rope broke. I put on another starter. The engine is locked up. I have the head off. the flywheel off. It turns backward just fine, and the piston is definitely still connected to the crank. What the heck? At this point I robbed the carb and got an identical Ariens going. I am seriously considering a new engine and junking the Tecumsehs as they need constant tinkering to keep going. Opinions are welcome
