    Different H35 intake

    Ive never gotten an intake like this on a Tecumseh before. Is this a more modern intake on this '68 H35? Judging by the torx screws it must be added later for sure. The speed control assembly is also weird.

    I have seen lots of them on the Tecumseh engines manufactured for the Sears Craftsman "Eager -1" lawn edgers during the 1970's-1980's. If you are referring to the screws holding the intake to the engine those are not "torx" screws- they are "allenhead" and I've seen them before

    Ive never seen even allen head screws on the old ones.
    Ok then i guess the intake could be original. Thanks!

    it's a sidepopper intake. It's flat so the small half tank can set above the carburetor without hitting into the manifold
    I'm not afraid of death. I'm afraid of dying. I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my father did -- not like his screaming passengers

    On those I usually find those two piece intake manifolds that put the carb a bit lower.

    That is my experience as well. If you have not removed it yet you are in for a real surprise how small the air passage is on these!
