rebuild comming along .pics

hi, my rebuild is coming along. letting the paint cure a little more before putting back together.this is the tractor that was being tossed up the street that I grabbed.i thought it was a 10965, but it is a 10954 W/ 910995 blower 24" my current is the 910954 w 32" bucket that I will redo next year.paint came out great, in the pics it looks like there are dark spots but its just shadows from the indoor lights.picked up a briggs engine w/electric start and 3 amp dc alternator for lights. cleaned all drive parts, all new bearings and bushings,with engine and paint and 2, 12 watt kawell led flood lights, and a pair of armor skids,it cost me 370.00.got the engine brand new for 220.00.will post more pic's when put back together, and once outside for better pics. chrome cleaned up nice with foil and coke. did not believe it would work. the rims look great except for the edge ,have to touch up still, pic makes it look like rust but there is none. i don't call it a restore because of the repower. should be good for another 40 or so years though. these machines are great

https://www.snowblowerforum.com/forum...ew-member.html the 24" i'm re-building now, stripped every part and bolt ,and drive gears and all those parts,, cleaned and used metal rescue to restore the metal parts and bolts.it had no engine.was put out for junk,so I grabbed it !!.... the 32 " I picked up in "85" for free and used it ever since,just needed a carb adjustment, but the tec engine died 2 years ago,and I put a 5 hp on it that I had from a tiller,and that worked better than the original tec that was on it.was not repairable or I would have rebuilt it. will re do the 32" next summer...just added some before pics but as you can see I had already started to take it apart before I took pics. you can see it was rough but still good enough to re-do. as far as painting, I stripped it using polycarbonate pads on my small grinder, it worked great it made it easy and fast without removing any metal. i etched using por15 metal ready.I then primed using por 15 then 2 coats of por 15 chevy orange engine enamel, then I topcoated with 3 coats of rustoleum crystal clear protective enamel

Hi neighbor... CtDave,
Very... nice. The odds should be that if you take care of that machine, it should take care of you. Where did you get the Briggs And Stratton?

got lucky. just started talking to a guy at home depot that was looking at blowers and he said he had a new engine that he wanted to sell.so I went to check it out and grabbed it..was still in the box never mounted or used the box was sealed.......I like to take care of all my equipment,especially these ,as I know how good they are at that they last. I've seen people with 2000.00 blowers that don't work as well or last as long.

Nice looking rebuild, the one thing I noticed, is you definitely want to put Sno-Hog tires on your machines. I have them on all my machines and never looked back.
