    Default "Ben, your motor was built by

    "Ben, your motor was built by Eska (bankrupt) for Sears.

    It is a 1972 7 horse, single cylinder. Now the good news. The powerhead itself was built by Tecumseh (very much in business).

    I have a cross reference to a Tecumseh number - Tec 640-05. Try a small engine place that deals with Tecumseh and see if they can help you out.

    Because, yes, you basically have a 7 horse, air-cooled lawnmower engine there. There may be a waterpump, but that will be used to help cool the exhaust and lower plate on the powerhead..."

    A "professional" is someone who gets paid for their work - it doesn't necessarily mean they are good at it :)

    "the impellor is alot cheaper on ebay instead of www.3sears.com and you only get a little water out the exhaust holes its a very simple set-up"
