The engine looks to be the original. If you posted or researched the engines serial number you should have a close idea of when it was made.

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

I just wanted to add that this engine started on the first pull, having not been run since last winter. I can open the choke all the way quickly and it runs great, no surging.

Wow, it sure takes you some time to respond, I asked last March about the car.

Nice little shed you added in the driveway too.

I always like the JD blowers, they look well made. (thumbsup)

I hate shoveling SNOW!

My brother-in-law worked at the now defunct JD dealer. He bought that machine new around 1990. Yes, I put up a small 20' x 28' shed to keep some of my stuff out of the weather.

The siding is 1x12 native Hemlock. They're cut to 10" wide and nailed on, the 2" strip covers up the seam. Around here its called board & batten.

I found the operators manual today, there's a page where you can order extra manuals. At the bottom of the page - Prices listed effective until December 1986. The ser. # on the machine is M00524X595895.
