    Wrong style shroud ???

    Not sure on the shroud. But the two motors were within a year or three of each other, by the date of manufacturing. You could tell I don’t like tecumseh much....

    Trust me there's beer. but a 16oz glass doesn't need much room, compared to motors!

    The motors look nice. Do you have some minibike frames picked-out to put these motors on?
    Or what other applications will you use these motors on?
    I saw a tavern that had a shiny fully restore Taco parked on the bar to be used as a
    conversation piece.

    It seems like every Minibike in the Detroit area has its original motor gone. So I started stockpiling old Tecumseh engines. I had to figure out a technique to restore them that worked for me and was efficient. It took a bit of practice
