1963 10ML60D repower complete

Picked up this machine for cheap recently, chassis was overall in very good shape but the engine needed quite a bit of work to bring it back to life. Quick trip to the local HF and we were back in biz. Easiest 212 swap ive done, no shaft adapters, no moving mounting points, unbolted the H60 and dropped the predator in. Works surprisingly well for a 57 year old machine

Nice work and nice save!!! Will you do an impeller mod on it?

I'm on the fence about the 212.. Do you think its powerful enough? I like the idea of going a step up to the 301cc, but not sure if the additional power is worth doubling the cost.

Nice! Same year machine my old man bought new. I remember the excitement when he brought it home and impressed that we had such a capable machine. We did a lot of snowblowing in those days. And that machine got them thru the bizzard of '78 outside of Boston. I was amazed that he had enough gasoline on hand for all that snow. The did run out of gin, though.

I have a Predator in the 10ML & and my 73 10,000 series with 32" bucket. They are a **** of a strong motor. I do set the governors @4000 rpms(using a tach) and they seem to love it there. On the side of the box it says "6.5 HP" but ive read that with proper jetting @ 4K these make almost 9 on a dyno. My "ultimate" idea is to someday drop a 420 in the 32" which has battery e start & a stator. But that would be a pretty involved project. But to answer your question i think the 212cc has more than enough to get the job done
