Unfortunately the pictures don't enlarge for me, it's hard to tell what you have. One thing though, are you sure you aren't missing a digit in the model number (looks short to me)?

Can't make out anything in the photos. Model number looks to be a digit short.

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

Can you retake the photos but in a larger format? Also, take a couple of the bucket front showing the impeller and auger close up. Also take one of the nameplate showing model and serial number.

Work fascinates me.

+1 on the belt. If you're going to keep it that'd be the first, logical step.

ok ill see what i can do about the pictures, i guess ill host them from a website.

anyway no belt on this one all chain driven, and yes that is the number i thought it was short one number as well, but there are only that many digits its odd, but maybe it might a real old machine when they had shorter model numbers.

Is this one with a centrifugal clutch ?? At idle the clutch is disengaged and once the RPMs come up the impeller starts spinning ??

Might be the clutch is worn out or has become contaminated with oil over the years.

They are few and far between but I have seen older Craftsman blowers using a centrifugal clutch similar to what's on a go cart or mini bike.
