My 69 10965

I got this blower from one of my landscape/snow cliants who wanted me to take it to the dump, so I took it home for free. After finding Scot's site, found I had a blower almost as old as me. The blower was sitting out side for four years and I thought it was a mid 70's blower. I drained the old gas,rebuilt the carb, put a spark plug in and the old h50 stared up. I ran the all last winter 80'' of snow. This winter I was board from lack of snow and said to myself I bet this blower would look nice it I sanded/ painted the handlebars and after I did that I said now the rest needs to be done.
Now after repainting and replacing some bushing I thought a newer engine would be nice. I found a 9.5 intek on ebay for $150 and thought it would be better than the harbor freight engine.

Old Blowers

Excellent! Looks great. Love seeing older machines being brought back and that one looks great to me.

Happens I'm in the middle of rebuilding and modding another blower myself. I'm in the middle of painting it also but it's been a headache trying to do it in the basement. One thing I found was I like the looks of clearcoating it after painting but trying it via rattle-cans is next to impossible (rattlecan clearcoat does not spray well). I'm thinking about getting the spray gun out and once it's warm enough seeing how that goes. Doesn't matter timewise, I don't think we're going to get any snow this year to use it on anyway
