Will you be rebuilding it with salvaged parts from another motor or new parts ? Just wondering about the cost , as a new engine is likely no long available .

I laughed one day when I heard a guy at a mower shop say -
"Ewwwww..it's a TECUMSEH",with a note of dissapointment in his voice ,when he went to look at the engine on a riding mower (used) he was thinking of buying.. :D

Then another time when I overheard another guy say "TECUMSEH"...isn't that Indian for
"Throws A Rod"??....

I thought you meant you were going to fix the Tecumseh , but re-reading it I can see you meant you needed the parts for the Brigg's instead .
