Heading over to the Dark Side
« on: May 28, 2016, 01:18:24 PM »
Just picked up my first Tecumseh
It's a TVT691.
It will start off being used for a GPT.
When I save up enough $$$$
on to BP.

Besides the O-Ring & Cracked fuel bowl issues,
What else should I watch out for?

Thanks
John

Just got my first one done and am impressed with it. Stock motor with arc flywheel and Briggs coils. From my understanding the factory coils don't like high rpm. Once you get the carbs tuned HOLD ON

Been reading through old post
For as much information on these motors.
Sounds like GPT will be loads of fun.
