The seal dimensions are 5/8" x 13/16" x 1/8" I get mine from an engineers supplies store. This part number may or may not be of some use B102472070.
Hey all

I live in the UK and the problem i have is Tecumseh has gone bust in Europe and so getting parts is very difficult now.

I need a Input oil seal Part No: 788083 but am only able to get one from the US. Making it very expensive.

I need the exact dimensions of the seal and possible a good picture of one so i can try and get it matched up to something else.

I have tried all the places that sell mower parts etc but nothing yet.



Following the last couple of questions i asked has anyone managed to get a picture/photo of this tricky little seal?

I need to know what its made of i.e. rubber, copper, synthetic etc and since I cant get a proper one a picture will definitly help me know what im looking for.

Cheers for the help so far guys/gals.
Yehhhh boiiiii

Its a fairly standard looking single lip seal. It is rubber all over and, because of its size, does not have a spring in behind the lip. I would have to take a trans out and apart to get a pic of a seal.
If it has blades I'm not interested.

Well obviously it fits a 5/8 shaft. Making it a 5/8 I'd. Measure the I'd of the case where the seal would go and start your search...

It has an "O" ring in behind the input pinion stock. It will generally not hold oil in the trans.
If it has blades I'm not interested.

A question on the peerless output shaft bushings,   on the side you have the sprocket mounted on, does   it wear out somewhat faster than the empty side?  Should it be checked every 3rd or 4 th race that is put on it?  I would like to be safe about it.  I would rather ask a dumb  question than make a stupid mistake.

I just finished building the “Mo-racer” with a 700-02 in it. After I put on the required safety gear I started up the mower and put it in gear, but nothing happened. :noplease: The Retaining Ring (Snap ring) on top of the input shaft broke. I think I know that the shaft is 5/8 but what do I need to know about that snap ring it seems I may have used the wrong size. What size is it and how do I get a stronger one?

Speaking from experience, find the part number for that snap ring in parts list at the top of this thread and get that particular snap ring. Apparently it is a heat threated high quality snap ring made specifically for that application.
