equipment is delivered to its original, end-use purchaser, and shall continue for 24 consecutive months thereafter.
B.GENERAL EMISSIONS WARRANTY COVERAGE: Tecumseh Products Co. warrants to the original, end-use purchaser of the
new engine or equipment and to each subsequent purchaser that each of its utility and lawn and garden equipment engines is:
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
2. Free from defects in materials and workmanship which, at any time during the ECS Warranty Period, will cause a warranted

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 Owner’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 Products Co. 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 Owner’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 Owner’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 Products Co. 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 emissions-related part.
4. Repair or replacement of any warranted, emissions-related 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.
6. Tecumseh Products Co. 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.
7. Throughout the ECS Warranty Period, Tecumseh Products Co. shall maintain a supply of warranted emission-related parts
sufficient to meet the expected demand for such emission-related parts.
8. Any Tecumseh Products Co. 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
Products Co. ECS Warranty obligations.
9. Unapproved add-on or modified parts may not be used to modify or repair a Tecumseh Products Co. engine. Such use voids
this ECS Warranty and shall be sufficient grounds for disallowing an ECS Warranty claim. Tecumseh Products Co. shall not be
