D. Stay Away from Rotating Parts
NEVER operate an engine with an unguarded engine shaft. The equipment manufacturer may attach a sprocket and chain or pulley and belt to the engine shaft. If these parts are not properly guarded, or if you are not sure whether they are properly guarded, DO NOT use your engine; contact the equipment manufacturer. Hands, feet, hair, jewelry, clothing, etc. can become entangled in rotating parts, leading to serious injury or death. To avoid serious injury or death, be sure the flywheel guard is in place.
B. Avoid Gasoline Fires
Gasoline (fuel) vapors are highly flammable and can explode. Fuel vapors can spread and be ignited by a spark or flame many feet away from engine. To prevent injury or death from fuel fires, follow these instructions: NEVER store engine with fuel in fuel tank inside a building with potential sources of ignition such as hot water and space heaters, clothes dryers, electric motors, etc. NEVER remove fuel cap or add fuel when engine is running. NEVER start or operate the engine with fuel fill cap removed. Allow engine to cool before refueling. NEVER fill fuel tank indoors. Fill fuel tank outdoors in a well-ventilated area. DO NOT smoke while refueling tank.

Todays fuels have a short shelf life and it is recommended you buy no more than a two week supply at a time. GASOLINE Tecumseh Power Company strongly recommends the use of fresh, clean, unleaded regular gasoline in all Tecumseh engines. Unleaded gasoline burns cleaner, extends engine life, and promotes good starting by reducing the build-up of combustion chamber deposits. Leaded gasoline, gasohol containing no more than 10% ethanol, premium gasoline, or unleaded gasoline containing no more than 15% MTBE (Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether), 15% ETBE (Ethyl Tertiary Butyl Ether) or 10% ethanol, can be used if unleaded regular gasoline is not available. Reformulated gasoline that is now required in several areas of the United States is also acceptable. NEVER USE gasoline, fuel conditioners, additives or stabilizers containing methanol, gasohol containing more than 10% ethanol, unleaded regular gasoline containing more than 15% MTBE (Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether), 15% ETBE (Ethyl Tertiary Butyl Ether) or 10% ethanol, gasoline additives, or white gas because engine/fuel system damage could result.
SPECIALTY FUELS Fuels being marketed for use on small engines can have a significant effect on starting and engine performance. Prior to using any specialty fuel, the Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) must be determined. Fuels with a rating of less than 50kPa (7psi) should not be used in summer, and fuel with a rating of 85kPa (12psi) should not be used during winter.
SHORT TERM STORAGE
WARNING NEVER store the engine with fuel in the fuel tank inside a building with potential sources
of ignition such as hot water and space heaters, clothes dryers, electric motors, etc.
If engine fuel stored in the gas tank and/or an approved gas container is to be unused without gasoline stabilizer for more than 15-30 days, prepare it for short term/seasonal storage. Tecumseh recommends using ULTRA-FRESH or Fuel Saver Plus Gasoline Stabilizer plus Fuel System Cleaner as an acceptable method of minimizing formation of fuel gum deposits during storage. This product is available from your Authorized Tecumseh Servicing Dealer. Always follow mix ratio found on stabilizer container. Failure to do so may result in equipment damage. It is not necessary to drain stabilized gas from carburetor.
4-Cycle Troubleshooting - continued
To reduce the risk of serious injury or death from fires and/or explosions, NEVER use flammable solvents (e.g., gasoline) to clean serviceable parts. Use a water-based, non-flammable solvent such as Tecumseh Degreaser Cleaner. CAUTION NEVER use compressed air to clean debris from yourself or your clothing. When using compressed air to clean or dry serviceable parts: Air pressure must not exceed 30psi (206kPa). Shield yourself and bystanders from flying debris.
Check for spark Using Tester 670366
Replace spark plug Check flywheel for correct key, damaged or sheared key Set proper air gap on ignition module
Isolate engine from all equipment (disconnect wiring harness), repeat test
Equipment problem, check switches, wiring and equipment controls
Engine problem, check for shorts or grounds in wiring
Should more extensive repair be needed, we recommend you contact a local Tecumseh Servicing Dealer for repair. Repair manuals are also available from your local dealer or direct from Tecumseh. A complete list of the available manuals can be found at the end of this book.
Tecumseh 2-Cycle Engine Oil Requirements
The proper type and ratio of 2-cycle oil is critical to long life and low maintenance of the engine. The use of non-certified oils and improper mix ratios can cause severe engine damage and possibly void warranty consideration. The following is a list of 2-cycle engine oil classifications which are certified for use in Tecumseh 2-cycle engines: National Marine Manufactures Association, (NMMA), TC-WII or TC-W3 American Petroleum Institute, (API), TC Japanese Automobile Standard Organization, (JASO), FB or FC

Basic Gear Drive Troubleshooting
NOTE Before troubleshooting any system problem, see original equipment manufacturers (O.E.M.) instructions. Make your troubleshooting easier by preparing as follows: Work in a clean, well-lighted place. Keep proper tools and materials nearby. Keep an adequate supply of clean petroleum-based solvent. To avoid carbon monoxide poisoning, make sure engine is outdoors in a well-ventilated area. Some maintenance procedures can not be performed until the vehicle wheels are secured and off the ground. Failure to do so could result in death or serious injury to yourself and/or bystanders. DO NOT attempt any maintenance procedures with the engine running. Doing so could result in death or serious injury to yourself and/or bystanders. Use care when performing inspection of the drive belt assembly including all vehicle linkage. Failure to do so could result in death or serious injury to yourself and/or bystanders.
Hard Shifting Transaxles and Drive Belts
Often hard shifting is blamed on an internal problem in the transaxle. To determine if the problem is transaxle or equipment related make these simple checks. 1. Turn the unit off so that all power is removed to the transaxle. 2. With the unit off, move the shift lever through the shift gate. Movement of the lever should have only slight resistance. The shifting effort should be equal when the engine is off and when running. If the unit is difficult to shift the problem would be internal and the transaxle would need to be removed and repaired. 3. If the unit shifts with ease, check the following areas that would be equipment related. Check to see if the belt is releasing from the pulley on the engine and transmission / transaxle, it may require that the belt guides be repositioned. The distance required from the pulley to the guide is typically 1/16" to 3/16" (1.6 mm - 4.8 mm), always check the O.E.M. specs.

1800 / VST Troubleshooting
The information on this page has been provided to help understand the internal operation of the VST. Do not use this information to attempt any internal repairs. Tecumseh's current policy on hydrostatic transaxles that have internal failures is to replace the complete unit. This has not changed. However, Tecumseh would like to provide a failure checklist to assist in making an accurate evaluation of the complete tractor to eliminate any unnecessary replacements. Here is a list of items to check and corrective actions to take. To properly test the unit for power loss. 1. Allow the unit to cool before trying the following steps. 2. Put the shift lever in a position that is 1/2 of the travel distance from neutral to forward. 3. Place the tractor on a 17o grade. 4. Drive the tractor up the grade (without the mower deck engaged). The loss of power experienced should be approximately 20%. This is considered normal. If the loss of power is approximately 50%, this would be considered excessive. 5. Bring the unit to neutral, shift into forward and note the response. Care should be taken to move the lever slowly to avoid an abrupt wheel lift. To determine if the problem is with the hydro unit, all external problem possibilities must be eliminated. Here are some potential problem areas. 1. Overheating: Heat can cause a breakdown in the viscosity of the oil which reduces the pressure used to move the motor. Remove any grass, debris, or dirt buildup on the transaxle cover and / or between the cooling fins and fan. Buildup of material will reduce the cooling efficiency. 2. Belt slippage: A belt that is worn, stretched, or the wrong belt (too large or wide) can cause belt slippage. This condition may have the same loss of power symptom as overheating. Typically, the unit which has a slipping belt will exhibit a pulsating type motion of the mower. This can be verified visually by watching the belt and pulley relationship. If the belt is slipping, the belt will chatter or jump on the pulley. If the belt is good, a smooth rotation will be seen. Replace the belt and inspect the pulley for damage. 3. Leakage: The VST and 1800 Series have two oil reservoirs which can be checked for diagnostic purposes. The first is the pump and motor expansion bellows. With a small diameter blunt or round nose probe, check the bellows depth through the center vent hole. Proper depth from the edge of that hole is 3-1/4 - 3-1/2 inches (8.25 - 8.9 cm). The second chamber is for the output gears including the differential. FIRST make sure the tractor is level, then remove the drain/fill plug. NOTE: Some units that do not have differential disconnect will have two plugs. We recommend using only the primary plug. With a small pocket rule insert until you touch bottom of case. You can then remove it and check for 1/4 - 3/8 inches (6.5 - 9.5 mm) contact, this is full at its 8 oz. capacity. 4. Low ground speed: If the linkage is not synchronized to absolute neutral, or the shift lever is not properly fastened to the tapered control shaft, full forward travel may not be achieved. This may cause a false reading and be misdiagnosed as a low power condition. This also could be caused by the brake not releasing. To determine absolute neutral, the hole in the tapered control shaft must face straight up and down, at this point make sure the O.E.M. linkage is in neutral. To properly fasten the control lever to the shaft, torque the nut to 25-35 ft. lbs. (34 - 48.3 Nm) of torque with the shaft and the lever in neutral. When attaching the shifter arm to the shaft you must prevent any rotation during torquing. This can be done by placing a long 5/16" bolt in the hole of the shaft. Hold the bolt until the tapers are locked and the nut torque is correct. To make sure that the brake is not binding, drive the unit up a slight grade. Position the speed control lever into neutral. The unit should coast backwards. If the unit does not coast back slowly, the brake is not released from the brake disk. Adjust the brake linkage to release the brake completely when the foot pedal is released. 5. Hard to shift: Typically hard to shift symptoms are not caused by the hydrostatic unit. The shift arm should move with relative ease. Approximately 40-50 in. lbs. (4.48 - 5.6 Nm) at the transaxle for foot pedal units or 150-200 in. lbs. (16.8 -22.4 Nm) for hand operated units. This varies depending on the type of linkage. Binding may occur in the linkage connections due to rust or moisture. Lubricating these connections and checking for bent or damaged parts should resolve hard shifting.

Tecumseh's current policy on VST and 1800 Series transaxles with internal failure, is to replace the complete unit. VST and 1800's have two separate reservoirs which can be checked for diagnostic purpose only. The output gear reservoir can be checked with a small pocket rule as outlined in the Tecumseh & Peerless Transmission and Drive Products Handbook. Refer to Tecumseh & Peerless Transmission and Drive Products Handbook, 691218.
