Bougt a Canadiana or is it a murray?? and have some problems

Hi.
Bougth a Canadiana snowblower two days a go, I've got it cheap so i just had to
The snowblower is Canadiana 827 with a Tecumseh 8hp HMSK80 engine. Engine only runs with to high rpm`s so i lubricated and moved the linkage and the butterfly "valve", works just fine but it won't run as it is supposed to do. Rpm`s goes up and down, maybe spark plug or something with the carb?

I also find it hard to find spares for Canadiana in Norway because there is no reseller in Noway any more. I 2 new belts for it.....

But is canadiana a murray? This is the label on my snowblower.


Engine label

Sound's like you need to clean the carb.

That is definitely a Murray based unit.

...and if it's only engine issues then dont worry about Canadiana or Murray. Focus on Tecumseh.

Not engine problems but problems with finding right belt to it.
If i have problems with the engine i think i will throw it in the sea and buy a replacement engine. I might change engine when the winter is gone.
Thanks for help

Murray manufactured it for Canadiana. That is quite common in North American equipment, and yes it makes it even more difficult to locate parts.

Your machine looks to be a European export model. The warning decals, and specification labels are not what we might see.

This is not exactly your machine, but I think that you will recognize the DNA of this machine and your is very similar. I would check under "Engine Assembly parts." You may want to google the part number of the belt, and see if you can find it's dimensions, and see if it's close to what you have.
