I. General Safety Precautions
• NEVER fill fuel tank indoors. Fill fuel tank outdoors
in a well-ventilated area.
• DO NOT smoke while refueling tank.
! WARNING
Read equipment manufacturer’s manual and this
material thoroughly before using this engine. Failure to
do so can result in serious injury or death. Consult your
local Authorized Tecumseh Servicing Dealer, call 1-800558-5402, or go to www.TecumsehPower.com for
additional information.
A. Avoid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
All engine exhaust contains
carbon monoxide, a deadly
gas. Breathing carbon
monoxide can cause
headaches, dizziness,
drowsiness, nausea, confusion
and eventually death.
• Use only an approved red GASOLINE container to
store and dispense fuel. Tecumseh recommends
purchasing gasoline in containers with a capacity of
2.5 gallons or less. Small containers are easier to
handle and help eliminate spillage during refueling.
• DO NOT pour fuel from engine or siphon fuel by
mouth. To empty the fuel tank "see "I. Draining Fuel"
instructions on page 24.
C. Adult Supervision of Operation, Refueling
and Maintenance
The manufacturer of the equipment may provide
information about who is allowed to use this engine (see
equipment manufacturer’s manual). NOT everyone who is
allowed to use this engine is capable of safely and
responsibly operating, maintaining and/or fueling it.
Tecumseh recommends the following:
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas
which may be present even if you DO NOT see or smell
any engine exhaust. Deadly levels of carbon monoxide can
collect rapidly and you can quickly be overcome and
unable to save yourself. Also, deadly levels of carbon
monoxide can linger for hours or days in enclosed or
poorly-ventilated areas. If you experience any symptoms of
carbon monoxide poisoning, leave the area immediately,
get fresh air, and SEEK MEDICAL TREATMENT.
To prevent serious injury or death from carbon monoxide:
• NEVER run engine indoors. Even if you try to
ventilate engine exhaust with fans or open windows
and doors, carbon monoxide can rapidly reach
dangerous levels.
• NEVER run engine in poorly-ventilated or partially
enclosed areas such as barns, garages,
basements, carports, under dwellings, or in pits.
• NEVER run engine outdoors where engine exhaust
can be drawn into a building through openings such
as windows and doors.
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 fill cap or add fuel when engine
is running.
• NEVER start or operate the engine with the fuel fill
cap removed.
• An adult should fuel this engine. NEVER allow
children to refuel this engine. See "E. Filling Fuel
Tank" instructions on page 8.
• An adult should perform maintenance on this
engine. See "VII. Maintenance" instructions on
page 17. Only allow children to perform maintenance if an adult has determined they are
experienced and capable of such operation.
• An adult should start the engine. See "G. Avoid
Accidental Starts" instructions on page 2. Only
allow children to start the engine if an adult has
determined they are experienced and capable of
such operation.
• To avoid unsupervised operation of the engine,
especially by children, NEVER leave it unattended
when it is running.
• Remove ignition key, if equipped.
D. Stay Away from Rotating Parts
NEVER operate the engine with an unguarded flywheel.
See Figure 1 on page 2.
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. See Figure
1 on page 2.
• Allow engine to cool before refueling.
181-1275-14
4-Cycle • Snow King Engine
Page 1
E. DO NOT Modify Engine
To avoid serious injury or death, DO NOT modify engine in
any way. Tampering with the governor setting can lead to a
runaway engine and cause it to operate at unsafe speeds.
NEVER tamper with factory setting of engine governor.
! WARNING
Use of this engine on fun-carts, go-karts, or mini-bikes
can result in serious injury or death. Tecumseh
manufactures the Power Sport line of engines for use in
such applications. Consult your local Authorized
Tecumseh Servicing Dealer, call 1-800-558-5402, or go
to www.TecumsehPower.com for additional information.

Avoid Burns and Fire from Hot Surfaces
Figure 1. Typical Flywheel Guard Location
OH318SA/OH358SA
OH195SA/OH195SP
LH195SA/LH195SP
LH318SA/LH358SA
The muffler and other engine parts become
extremely hot during operation and remain
hot after the engine has stopped.
• To avoid severe burns on contact,
STAY AWAY from hot areas of
engine. DO NOT operate the engine
without the muffler guard in place, if
equipped. Tecumseh Power Company offers a
muffler guard for all 4-Cycle Snow King Engines.
Consult your local Authorized Tecumseh Servicing
Dealer or call 1-800-558-5402 for additional
information. See Figure 2.
• To reduce the risk of fire keep all materials that can
burn, including grass and leaves, away from muffler
and rest of engine. DO NOT operate, idle or park
engine powered equipment in long dry grass or
other dry ground cover.
Figure 2. Muffler Guards Available
G. Avoid Accidental Starts
To prevent accidental starting when working on equipment
always:
• Carefully disconnect spark plug wire and keep it
away from spark plug. See Figures 3 and 4.
• Keep the disconnected spark plug wire
securely away from metal parts where arcing
could occur.
• Carefully attach the spark plug wire to the
grounding post, if provided.
Figure 3. Disconnecting/Connecting Spark Plug
• Disconnect battery at negative terminal first, if
engine is equipped with a D.C. electric starter.
• Turn all engine switches to “OFF” position.
• Remove ignition key, if provided.
H. Use Hearing Protection

IX. Storing Your Engine
III. Fuel System
A. Short-Term/Seasonal Storage
To avoid stale gas and carburetor problems, treat the fuel
system in the following method below:
I.
NOTES
Tecumseh recommends using ULTRA-FRESH™
Gasoline Stabilizer as an acceptable method of minimizing
formation of fuel gum deposits during storage. This product
is available from your Authorized Tecumseh Servicing
Dealer.
Clean Engine
Before servicing the engine remove the carburetor cover
and/or blower housing. Discard dirt and debris from the
following areas:
• Cooling Fins
• Air Intake Screen or Recoil Starter/Flywheel Guard
Areas
• Oil Fill Cap/Dipstick
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.
• Fuel Fill Cap Areas
• Spark Plug Connection
IV. Fuel Treatment
• Levers
1. Add fuel stabilizer according to manufacturer’s
instructions.
• Linkage Area
2. Run engine at least 10 minutes after adding stabilizer
to allow it to reach carburetor.
• Guards
• Carburetor
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.
! WARNING
• Head
Removing debris will insure adequate cooling, correct
engine speed and reduce the risk of fire.
II. Fuel Storage
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. Failure to do so may
result in an explosion and result in death or serious injury.
! WARNING
NOTES
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. See "IV. Fuel Treatment" instructions. Afterward,
continue reading instructions below.
If engine fuel is to be stored for more than one season,
without gasoline stabilizer, it will gradually deteriorate. Also,
if it is stored in the engine’s gas tank without gasoline
stabilizer it is likely that your carburetor will have gum
deposits, a clogged fuel system and WILL VOID YOUR
WARRANTY. Prepare the fuel for extended storage. See
"B. Extended Storage" instructions. Afterward, continue
reading instructions.
NOTE
Instead of using a fuel preservative/stabilizer, you can
empty the fuel tank as described under "I. Draining Fuel"
instructions. See "B. Extended Storage" instructions.

X. Preventing Forest, Brush and Grass
Fires
Local, state and federal laws may require use of a spark
arrester to prevent fires. For example, it is a violation of
California Public Resources Code (section 4442) to use or
operate engine on any forest-covered, brush-covered or
unimproved grass-covered land unless engine is equipped
with a spark arrester. Spark arrester must be maintained in
effective working order by owner and/or operator.
To determine if your engine has a spark arrester, locate the
muffler on your engine. For example, the muffler discharge
will have a spark arrester cover that reads “Tecumseh
Screen Type 36085”.
If your engine does NOT have a spark arrester, you may
purchase one from your Authorized Tecumseh Servicing
Dealer. In some cases the muffler may need to be replaced
to allow the spark arrester to be installed.
XI. Maintenance Intervals
Maintenance is one of the most important things that you
can do to extend the life of your Tecumseh Engine. If you
are unable to perform maintenance intervals yourself,
consult your local Authorized Tecumseh Servicing Dealer,
call 1-800-558-5402, or go to www.TecumsehPower.com
for additional information.
ALWAYS promptly follow maintenance intervals listed in
this manual. See Table 4.

CALIFORNIA & US EPA EMISSION CONTROL WARRANTY STATEMENT
The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), the
California Air Resources Board (“CARB”) and Tecumseh Power
Company are pleased to explain the Federal and California
Emission Control Systems Warranty on your new small off-road
engine. In California, new 1995 and later small off-road engines
must be designed, built and equipped to meet the State’s
stringent anti-smog standards. In other states, new 1997 and
later model year engines must be designed, built and equipped,
at the time of sale, to meet the U.S. EPA regulations for small
non-road engines. Tecumseh Power Company will warrant the
emission control system on your small off-road engine for the
periods of time listed below, provided there has been no abuse,
neglect, unapproved modification, or improper maintenance of
your small off-road engine.
You are responsible for presenting your small off-road engine to
a Tecumseh Authorized Service Outlet (any Tecumseh
Registered Service Dealer, Tecumseh Authorized Service
Distributor or Tecumseh Central Warehouse Distributor) as soon
as a problem exists. The warranty repairs should be completed
in a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.
Your emission control system may include parts such as the
carburetor, ignition system and exhaust system. Also included
may be the compression release system and other emissionrelated assemblies.
This warranty statement explains your rights and obligations
under the Emission Control System Warranty (“ECS Warranty”)
which is provided to you by Tecumseh Power Company
pursuant to California law. Tecumseh Power Company also
provides to original purchasers of new Tecumseh Power
Company engines the Tecumseh Power Company Limited
Warranties for New Tecumseh Engines and Electronic Ignition
Modules. The Tecumseh Power Company Limited Warranties for
New Tecumseh Engines and Electronic Ignition Modules
(“Tecumseh Power Company Warranty”) are located on the back
cover of the Operator’s Manual, enclosed with all new Tecumseh
Power Company engines. The ECS Warranty applies only to the
emission control system of your new engine. To the extent that
there is any conflict in terms between the ECS Warranty and the
Tecumseh Power Company Warranty, the ECS Warranty shall
apply except in any circumstances in which the Tecumseh
Power Company Warranty may provide a longer warranty
period. Both the ECS Warranty and the Tecumseh Power
Company Warranty describe important rights and obligations
with respect to your new engine.
Where a warrantable condition exists, Tecumseh Power
Company will repair your small off-road engine at no cost to you
for diagnosis, parts and labor.
MANUFACTURER’S EMISSION CONTROL
SYSTEM WARRANTY COVERAGE
Emission control systems on 1995 and later model year
California small off-road engines are warranted for two years as
hereinafter noted. In other states, 1997 and later model year
engines are also warranted for two years. If, during such
warranty period, any emission-related part on your engine is
defective in materials or workmanship, the part will be repaired
or replaced by Tecumseh Power Company
OWNER’S WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES
As the small off-road engine owner, you are responsible for the
performance of the required maintenance listed in your
Operator’s Manual, but Tecumseh Power Company will not deny
warranty solely due to the lack of receipts or for your failure to
provide written evidence of the performance of all scheduled
maintenance.
As the small off-road engine owner, you should, however, be
aware that Tecumseh Power Company may deny you warranty
coverage if your small off-road engine or a part thereof has failed
due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance or unapproved
modifications.
Warranty service can be arranged by contacting either an
Authorized Tecumseh Servicing Dealer and/or Tecumseh Power
Company, c/o Service Manager, 900 North Street, Grafton, WI
53024-1499. Telephone 1-262-377-2700 [or in USA/Canada call
1-800-558-5402].
IMPORTANT NOTE
Warranty service can only be performed by a Tecumseh Power
Company Authorized Servicing Dealer. At the time of requesting
warranty service, evidence must be presented of the date of sale
to the original purchaser. The purchaser shall pay any charges
for making service calls and/or for transporting the products to
and from the place where the inspection and/or warranty work is
performed. The purchaser shall be responsible for any damage
or loss incurred in connection with the transportation of any
engine or any part(s) thereof submitted for inspection and/or
warranty work.
If you have any questions regarding your warranty rights and
responsibilities, you should contact Tecumseh Power Company
at 1-262-377-2700 or in USA/Canada call 1-800-558-5402.
Revised April, 2005

EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM WARRANTY
Emission Control System Warranty (“ECS Warranty”) for 1995
and later model year California small off-road engines (for other
states, 1997 and later model year engines):
A. APPLICABILITY: This warranty shall apply to 1995 and
later model year California small off-road engines (for other
states, 1997 and later model year engines). The ECS
Warranty Period shall begin on the date the new engine or
equipment is delivered to its original, end-use purchaser,
and shall continue for 24 consecutive months thereafter.
4. Repair or replacement of any warranted, emissionsrelated part under this ECS Warranty shall be performed
at no charge to the owner at a Tecumseh Authorized
Service Outlet.
5. The owner shall not be charged for diagnostic labor
which leads to the determination that a part covered by
the ECS Warranty is in fact defective, provided that such
diagnostic work is performed at a Tecumseh Authorized
Service Outlet.
B. GENERAL EMISSIONS WARRANTY COVERAGE:
Tecumseh Power Company warrants to the original, end-use
purchaser of the new engine or equipment and to each
subsequent purchaser that each of its small off-road engines
is:
6. Tecumseh Power Company shall be liable for damages
to other original engine components or approved
modifications proximately caused by a failure under
warranty of an emission-related part covered by the ECS
Warranty.
1. Designed, built and equipped so as to conform with all
applicable regulations adopted by the Air Resources
Board pursuant to its authority in Chapters 1 and 2, Part
5, Division 26 of the Health and Safety Code, and
7. Throughout the ECS Warranty Period, Tecumseh Power
Company shall maintain a supply of warranted emissionrelated parts sufficient to meet the expected demand for
such emission-related parts.
2. Free from defects in materials and workmanship which,
at any time during the ECS Warranty Period, will cause a
warranted emissions-related part to fail to be identical in
all material respects to the part as described in the
engine manufacturer’s application for certification.
8. Any Tecumseh Power Company authorized and
approved emission-related replacement part may be
used in the performance of any ECS Warranty
maintenance or repair and will be provided without
charge to the owner. Such use shall not reduce
Tecumseh Power Company ECS Warranty obligations.
C. The ECS Warranty only pertains to emissions-related
parts on your engine, as follows:
1. Any warranted, emissions-related parts which are not
scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in
the Operator’s Manual shall be warranted for the ECS
Warranty Period. If any such part fails during the ECS
Warranty Period, it shall be repaired or replaced by
Tecumseh Power Company according to Subsection 4
below. Any such part repaired or replaced under the
ECS Warranty shall be warranted for any remainder of
the ECS Warranty Period.
2. Any warranted, emissions-related part which is
scheduled only for regular inspection as specified in the
Operator’s Manual shall be warranted for the ECS
Warranty Period. A statement in such written instructions
to the effect of “repair or replace as necessary”, shall not
reduce the ECS Warranty Period. Any such part repaired
or replaced under the ECS Warranty shall be warranted
for the remainder of the ECS Warranty Period.
3. Any warranted, emissions-related part which is
scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in
the Operator’s Manual, shall be warranted for the period
of time prior to the first scheduled replacement point for
that part. If the part fails prior to the first scheduled
replacement, the part shall be repaired or replaced by
Tecumseh Power Company according to Subsection 4
below. Any such emissions-related part repaired or
replaced under the ECS Warranty, shall be warranted for
the remainder of the ECS Warranty Period prior to the
first scheduled replacement point for such emissionsrelated part.
9. Unapproved add-on or modified parts may not be used
to modify or repair a Tecumseh Power Company engine.
Such use voids this ECS Warranty and shall be sufficient
grounds for disallowing an ECS Warranty claim.
Tecumseh Power Company shall not be liable hereunder
for failures of any warranted parts of a Tecumseh Power
Company engine caused by the use of such an
unapproved add-on or modified part.
