Eager-1

So I got this snowblower today. The original owner said it is a 1974 model. It is a 536.905903 model. It is a 5 hp with 20" clearing width. In all it looks pretty clean!

Anyway, they were going to give it away for free. I gave them $20.00.

They said it started every year except this year. I got it home, gave it a few pulls, and could smell varnish immediately.

I took apart the carb, and the gas inside was green. Yuck. It needed a new bowl gasket, so I purchased a new kit.

I didn't do a good job of removing the carb and remembering where everything goes, but i've done this a few times, so I'm not too concerned.

I do have one question that I am hoping someone can answer. In the one pic of the carb, you will see a small hose. It is not the gasoline intake hose. I'm not sure what it is, or what purpose it serves. I'm wondering if this hooks up to the primer bulb somehow?

If anyone can assist me here, I would appreciate it!

Thumbs up

Yessir. That there is the primer hose. Looks like you're going to need a new one.
That's a really nice looking machine you've got.

Reason why I take lots of pictures when I disassemble. Memory kinda fades as we get older.

It connects from the primer bulb to where it's shown in this pic on the carb.

Did you remove a sheet metal cover (heat box) to access the carb? If yes, the primer bulb is on that cover. If no, you should ask the seller if they still have the cover.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

yes I did remove the sheet metal cover. I think I know what to do now.

I'm thinking of doing an impeller mod on this unit. Further research shows that this is likely a 3.5 hp, not a 5 hp as I originally thought. So I'm thinking an impeller kit might be a good idea. There is about a 1/4" gap or so between the impeller and housing. Thoughts?

The impeller kit will help with throwing distance but it really shines when you blow wet and slushy snow and try not have the engine lugging with the heavy snow. Good Luck

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.
