Re: Briggs and Stratton or Tecumseh?
While in the business using some small engines we use to call Tecumseh, te com sheits. I've seen a few with side cases blown out by broken rods, also burned off cams, not particularly good starters in my opinion. B & S were Ok especially the commercial models when they use to use bearings on both sides of the crank and iron cylinder sleeves. My favorite were the older Kohlers singles and doubles which were pretty industructible; so were some of the Wisconsins. I've seen some Robins that really purred. Honda and Kawas are pretty good and quiet for aluminum engines, and I guess that is what we are going with these days.
