Bought Noma 9hp 27" great condition for $150
$150 bought me a beautiful garage kept Noma 9hp 27", 12" impeller, 20" high front housing, 2 new belts, 2 new cables, tires are in great shape, big treads and wide! Really fat tires. Cutting edge is good. Has a new Chinese carb with a high speed adjustment jet and a carb drain button.
Downside - engine idles up and down as if the carb is dirty but the owner just replaced it. I need to see if I can adjust it out. He gave me 2 used 10hp Tecumseh carbs. He did not know how to make adjustments so the cable adjustments are not correct. Possibly because of this the machine doesn't move forward or back. Looked underneath quickly, the friction disk looks good. Also will check the belt adjustment.
I think this was a good buy. Now I'm going to sell my 5hp Noma. Both are heavy machines but surprisingly the 9hp is not any more difficult to turn or to handle than the 5hp Noma.
