Customer Question
I have a HM80...

I have a HM80 Tecumseh engine on a Mow-N-Vac trailer that has a chipper/shredder attachment, & it is burning oil. I'm exploring the possibility of replacing it. Where can obtain info on the cost of doing this?

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make and model of the chipper? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

The engine family is: STP318U 1G2RAm DOM 8209.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

YES.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Where can I obtain pricing cost & shipping info.

Since you provided the info for a Briggs Stratton engine, I'm guessing the Tecumseh engine that I have is no longer available? Is the B&S engine a horizontal drive shaft?
Technician: JON, Small Engine Technician replied 7 months ago

Tecumseh is no longer made and/or avail.

I have provided a link to price and a pic of the briggs engine that will fit this machine
