craftsman owner/service manual

Happy holidays to all,
My name is Dan and I just picked up a used craftsman snowblower from my local
True value hardware store the original owner did not maintain the engine and it went so a replacement brand new 8hp Briggs Stratton was installed I am trying to locate the owners manual it is a 26" electric start 8hp briggs Stratton the tag on bottom rear of machine has two numbers under model # or just one long number 31as6dtf799 247.88370.0 also says that it is distributed by sears roebuck and co. Hoffman estates, il. 60179 was wondering if I should try checking with them first any thoughts or opinions took some photos with my phone so I'll try to figure out how to upload on my profile I picked up for 350.00 seemed to be a good deal THANKS AGAIN DAN!

The 247.883700 number works on the Searspartsdirect web site : http://www.searspartsdirect.com/mode...83700&shdPart=

$350 doesn't seem unreasonable. I can't tell from the pic, but does it have 120V start?

Looks like an LCT engine variant.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Thanks for all your feedback kiss4afrog, db130, db9938 I have already downloaded a copy of the owner manual that was pretty easy I did call SEARS PARTS DIRECT and it would cost $28 for a hard copy of manual wow that's high also db130, thanks for help with the picture and db9938 yes this has electric start I don't know what you mean by lct variant engine if you have time can you explain what that is I would like to be a little more knowledgeable about it as I mentioned I bought this used from my local hardware store owner who took it in to repair but original owner didn't want to mess with engine replacement so I bought it with brand new engine installed, new belts, tuned THANKS AGAIN TO ALL &HAPPY NEW YEAR

Your machine was made by MTD for Sears, so here is a link to the MTD service manual which should cover most of the repairs and adjustments you will need. Happy New Year.

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

Just in case you didn't know it was made by MTD by all means search around for parts as Searspartsdirect can be a little brutal for pricing at times.

I like using their web site for looking up stuff but then I search it on the web, ebay, amazon and the different snow blower parts sites for price, shipping, availability and what other P/Ns are interchangeable.
