Hey, it's 250cc, of *course* it's making 17 hp. It just needed a turbo added, a small NOS canister, and the governed speed raised to 6000 RPM

Seller thinking, while composing his craigslist ad:

"hmm..I wonder how many horsepower this is? the engine says 250cc, but thats not the horsepower..what other numbers can I find? the owners manual says the different models available are:

921013
921017
921018
921022
921023
921027
921031

Those last digits must obviously mean the different horsepower ratings for the different models..mine is model 921017, therefore its 17hp..mystery solved..man i'm smart!"

Adjust the governor, run at 4500 rpm..... Problem solved !

Seriously, though, my experience has been that commercially available snowblowers are always underpowered for handling heavy wet snow. Years ago, I had a Sears with a 7 hp engine that died (broke a connecting rod), that I repowered up to 10 hp. Much better! My current 11.5 hp Ariens would work better with 13 - 15. I think the snowblower engineers must live in areas with powdery snow.

I've heard about 15hp, but I'm not sure if that's accurate. As a point of reference, my 318cc OHV Tecumseh is rated at 10hp.

The engine is actually 250cc, I'm guessing the 205cc in PS93's post was a typo.
