No, I do not believe that Cub Cadet ever used an HH120. The companies that come to my mind who did use those engines are Massey Ferguson, and Sears.

The only Cub to ever use a Tecumseh engine was the Cadet 60 RER. I can't recall the exact engine model but it had 6 horsepower.

I recently found one on the pallet in the box NEW. It has never had gas or oil ( other assembly oil ) in it !

that's pretty cool!
I'd heard older Tecumseh motors were pretty good...but the only one I can remember running is on my parent's mid-80's Troy-bilt rototiller. Hasn't been run in years but I'm thinking a good carb clean up and some tuning, it should run again fine...

The cast iron tecumseh engine's were not terrible.

I would agree early cast Tec.were good engines but their carbs were terrible.They got caught up in box store products where the whole point was cheap and they most certainly went that way.My favorite cheap was a push mower engine with an uncovered air filter made of paper.I f you left that out in the rain it wasn't going to run until the filter was pulled....Magnets glued to flywheel often came off...I stopped working on modern ones.....thrown quite a few in the junk pile.....
