I got this for free last fall. It was a complete wreck that barely ran, the light did not work, and it stoped working after 3 storms.
It is a 1986 Snapper 826 Snow thrower.
I replaced the belts, and the sealed beam bulb, installed a light switch that had been bypassed, changed the oil, gave it a tuneup, welded two of the blades on the auger, adjusted the controls, and the choke, fixed the shoot, as it was binding, and fixed the u joint that was broken, and finally painted it.
The blue paint will be replaced with safety yellow.
She is now ready for action.
