Picked up a 1136 as part of a package deal

PICTURES ADDED

today picked up a 1136 as part of a package deal. had to take with the blower I really wanted.

needs a recoil starter. electric start works. needs some minor. a lot of work has been done to it . new clutch, carb work , all new pins.

has been used most of winter.

my question is what it's worth? there are no 1136's for sale around here. a lot of 824 's for around 400 or so. don't know how old it is. can you tell by serial number?
I can post pics in a couple day. Has wheels with chains.

would there be a better demand for parting out? or maybe trade ?

not too familiar with the arien brand even though it is the second most common blower around here.

I think I'll be able to repair the 1136 .

I also have a 824 that I might part out if there is interest in parts here. otherwise I'll save it for trade.

I have an ST1236 (I bought it with a blown auger gearbox for $125), still have not been able to remove 1 of the 2 seized augers from the shaft.
This ST11/12/13/36 machines are little monsters......!
I may end up building a pretty powerful snowblower out of it, mine looks in pretty good shape overall. I think the reason why the gearbox broke was because the augers were seize to the shaft and the PO may have hit some hard object.

I've tried several procedures and I even sent it to a machine shop, the were able to get one side off, but gave up on the other one.
My next attempt would likely be using electrolysis.

hypnosis may work.

I also tried sleeping on it, but it was very uncomfortable.

Drip some (a lot) of PB Blaster through the shaft for a week or so, and tap it with a hammer to vibrate the metal so the PB Blaster will seep into the rust. After a week, it will pull of just like butter - well, not really, but you'll have a lot better chance !

as a last resort, sit it down across the table from you and calmly explain that it does not cooperate then you will take it to the crusher.

anything with an atom in it has feelings.( Buddhist teachings )

works every time.

Today it started right up with electric start.

where can I get a recoil starter for it? and I am not sure but the part that screws on the shaft is bad, I believe, because the ball bearings came all out.

The throttle may be missing a spring because it won't stay on high. I manually have to keep up for fast throttle and as soon as I let go , it goes back to slow.

The carb def needs a cleaning as it sounds terrible at start up until it warms up. the choke works well.

This thing is HUGE and seems like it is extremely heavy duty. I am only 5'4" and it seems like a lot to handle.

I will post a picture tomorrow and the serial number.
