Question Trying to ID old Craftsman

Hi all.

Does anyone have any idea what this is?

(This is not my ad but mine looks pretty much the same and this is the only picture I could find on the internet.)

http://http://www.kijiji.ca/v-snowbl...ationFlag=true

It has a gearbox with one forward and one reverse gear and it looks like a centrifugal clutch on the motor. It's a Tecumseh HS50-67283K motor.

The Sears ID sticker on the back of the machine is mutilated and unreadable.

TIA

The link doesn't work but based on the reference to single speed and a centrifugal clutch, I have seen pictures of one before. The one I saw was black and yellow from what I remember.

I don't know the model on it but I believe it's from the 50's era. May have been made by AMF. Big issue with a machine that age would be parts availability.

Hope that helps. Good luck.

I have no idea what that one is, it's definitely not the one I saw. In fact the color looks like either an old Ford or Bolen (not sure which).

Sorry.

The ad that you posted says Craftsman?
You say the Sears tag and ID # is messed up?

I would guess it is an old Craftsman?

I think I just saw one on the internet somewhere while I was searching.

I will go and see if I can find a picture.

I believe this is an old Craftsman it is on Craigslist pictured with a bunch of others for sale. He doesn't say much, just "For Sale".
What a salesman.

On second thought that one I pictured could be a Lambert, looks just like the one on this site,

Good plan. It's easier to guess what it is if we are actually looking at the machine you want to know about vs one that "looks pretty much the same".

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

No pics today - it's -11 (12F), snowing and windy, and we just moved and I can't find my camera.
