I have never used a Simplicity Snowblower like this, I really think I want to keep this machine...But before I make that decision let's hear the Pros & Cons from the people that have owned and operated these snow machines...Shoot me a review....Your two cents...Your opinion on these Simplicity Snowblowers...Simplicity 860 #1691023
I have an old Simplicity 860SE that needs a carburetor. Can you tell me what model # is for the old Tecumseh 8hp engine. I see a bunch of carbs in the $10-20 range.
Easier to replace than rebuild. OR do you know the model 3 of the stock carb? Trying to buy the right one.
