Question Tecumseh HH60 Magnet Location

Hi,

I have a Tecumseh HH60 105091F, the magnets came loose in the flywheel. I can't find a replacement for it, I read somewhere that someone re-guled them back on to the flywheel. Does anyone have something that shows where they need to go, is there a pattern that they need to be in? I tried to look at the flywheel to see if I could see where they were but it has rust and I can't tell. I'm hoping someone has a picture that could help me.

Thanks
Mike

Thanks for the photos, but mine is different, it has about 9 flat magnets inside the flywheel.

The HH60 is a 6HP horizontal cast iron engine most of witch were used on Troybilt tillers. Tecumseh had obsoleted most of those parts some time ago and now Tecumseh has gone out of business. I am sure that I have a couple of HH60's around here that are blown up that I can get you a good used flywheel but all that stuff is put away until the spring, I will be changing up here in about 2 to 3 weeks and that stuff will be visable again so if you have no luck before then hit me up and I will see what I have then.

Exclamation Re: Tecumseh HH60 Magnet Location

Your multi-magnet flywheel is made for an engine with an alternater for making power for recharging a battery and running a light. Have all the magnets been ripped out? If not, they are equally spaced, and alternate N and S poles. You can determine position by looking at the remaining magnets. If they all are ripped out, you are SOL, sorry. You need to find a wheel specifically for your type engine, if you have to replace it. Crank taper is different between the 5, 6, and 7 HP engines! I re-mounted a magnet for a H-70 engine recently. Clean flywheel interior with sand paper and a damp cloth. Thoroughly dry the wheel, and let sit overnight. Next day, figure positions of magnets, and draw circumference with a sharpie pen or a good pencil., to mark their position. Mix up JB weld epoxy, put a little mixed epoxy on the magnet, and set it in position. Clamp in place with a 'C' clamp, and let set over night. Repeat for remaining magnets.
