If the Honda runs and the Tecumseh does not, this is a no-brainer. Go with the Honda.

If you plan on modifying to make it faster, also a no-brainer. Go with the Honda.

If you like having an engine with readily available parts and a reliable carburetor, go with the Honda.

If you want a good project engine, use the Tecumseh.

Tecumseh make good engines. I've personally seen one made into a beast.

But I'd advise a different carb. Most people just can't seem to figure them out.

I would say it will most likely fit. And if it has a built in key then even better.

It's definitely a project engine, but, have YOU ever rebuilt something like that, or just shopped for lipstick?

This isn't jsut any 6hp Tecumseh guys, the HH60 was the cast iron block version of Tecumseh's aluminum block engines. The heads and covers are still aluminum however. If you want to put it onto a cart, that is up to you, but these engines were designed for longevity not performance. The HH series are among the best engines that Tecumseh ever made. DEF I would keep it, you risk running into rusty cylinder walls but that can be fixed via a simple honing for not too much money. If you don't want it, sell it to someone who needs it for a restoration. It is incredibly rare to find these not in the SnowKing version, which had different carburetors and other minor diffrences. Most HH engines had a electric starter option, the lack of one on yours dosen't make it worth more, but it does make it more rare.

I have a HH70, which was a the 7hp version of this motor (same block) and it is a beast. You don't have to worry about over revving it and punching a hole in the block AS much as a aluminum block version. There is simply nothing more American than a cast iron Tecumseh engine! These were sold as the Tecumseh XL series which was Tecumsehs commercial lineup. You will have to pull the flywheel to change the points, and you will need to have a dial gauge to reset the stator, so don't undo the stator bolts. PM me if you want more tech info on working on it. These are rare machines and are becoming incredibly hard to find in any condition. I am certain this came off of a Troy Bilt Horse rototiller, also one of the best tillers ever made. If you don't want it you will be able to find a buyer who will want it to put onto their Troy Bilt. Please keep it in one piece for the sake of history.
