Old restoration that I did for my Wife's family.

She's an old one, but a solid one. And in-laws are happy that it no longer justs sits in the lonely corner of the garage.

It looks like a two-stage, from the side, but is actually a single stage. The electric start was added about 15-20 years ago, according to the family.

I did a total tear-down and rebuild. The bearings on the opposite side of the case for the auger drive, were the most difficult to acquire.

It now fire's with the first pull.

Mod #. 310 230A

Engine- HS50 67174(C or 0) I've done my best to figure that one out, as neglect got the best of that.

Well, partly. The powers that be nixed my ideas of totally respraying it. I was ables to paint the auger housing, auger and chute. The paint is not a perfect match, it's a Cub Yellow, but it's as close as I could find. And the interior of the auger housing, I had intended to paint it yellow as well, but the "powers that be" thought differently. I honestly think it was painted with some sort of undercoating.

After this experience, I will definitely bring any project to my shop, so that other hands and opinions can remain out of it. Inlaws..........
