Scored a '73....

Got this one for $25. One Family Owned with Documentation. Runs, but is Blowing Oil Through the Breather. Another Candidate for a Predator Repower.

Only the Chute was Repainted, the Rest is Original Paint. Inside of Tractor Unit is Clean and was Maintained. I only had to Replace RH Axle Bearing, and will deal with the Engine later, as I'm not really in Snowblower Mode Yet, but I always keep an eye out for Bargains in the Summer.

Speaking of repower has anyone checked the Loncin winter engines?
They look neat and completely shrouded. This company is apparently well renowned for quality. Don't have much info on pricing. Toro puts these on their blowers.

Engine
The Harbor Freight Predator is made by Loncin which ironically is the same company that makes engines for Toro snowblowers. The original blue Greyhound engine was made by Lifan

What a deal. New 212cc Predator and you have a beast of a machine to sell. I am tempted to do this too. But my wife would most likely kill me. I did it last fall and I like my newly repowered Gilson Montgomery Ward 8/26. I may even hog out the air cleaner and rejet the Predator since NR racing found that the Predator put out nearly 9 horsepower with a less restrictive than stock K&N style air filter and richer jeting as it's only modification. I hogged out my air box on the minibike and rejetted it richer and I had to add some steel to the front of the minibike because it became a wheelie machine.

I had some Time, so I did the Swap. Used a Tecumseh OHV I got in a Barter Deal. Runs Great! I'll get Lots of Good Parts from That Original Engine as Well!
