Thumbs up Murray "BRUTE" 10HP 29" complete restoration

I recently bought a 2004 "BRUTE" snowblower model 629106X83B in very nice shape but when the winter's over, I plan to take it apart and have all the yellow parts powdercoated. For some reason, only the yellow needs to be redone as the black components (wheels, engine, chute, etc…) all look ok, but my main question is this: Does someone know where to buy original REPLACEMENT DECALS for it? I don't want to restore it and leave it without any decals. Right now, I found a place to have them reproduced but it looks like it will be a little expensive (but I'll still have them made if I don't find original ones).
Any help would greatly be appreciated!
Thanks,
Claude.

Thanks for your reply…I already contacted someone who does that but I was trying to find some original decals first but if I don't, I won't have no other choice but to have them made.
Thanks again,

Claude.

When you buy something "used" there are always some little "issues" to fix to make it right, and today I found a few "things" which needed to be fixed. First while clearing my driveway, one of the belts let go so I replaced both 'cause I don't know when they were replaced in the past and also I noticed that one of the wheels was secured by a nut and bolt instead of the pin with ring spring (pictured below) so tomorrow, I'll get the correct one to replace the bolt.

…and back to my original post, does someone know where to find the original decals?

Claude.

I know this isn't your model, but some may apply, and if you dig around the various Brute models you may find more: https://www.jackssmallengines.com/ja...-group-2989394

I finally ordered a complete set of decals from Nate at www.clickitandatickit.com for my snowblower which I bought used in February and which I'm going to start restoring pretty soon. I am still waiting for them to get here. Total cost was $125. for all the decals. As soon as I receive them, I plan to disassemble the whole snowblower (and take numerous pictures while doing so) and send everything to be powdercoated in the original color and them when it gets back, I'll reassemble it and put on the decals for the final touch. Should look great! I might post some pictures of "before vs. after" here on the site...

Hi everyone…It's been a while but as promised, here are a few pictures of my "Brute" snowblower which I'm restoring myself. I took it apart earlier this year and sent everything to the powdercoater to be sandblasted and coated in it's original color. Now it's time for re-assembly but I'm far from finished!... but I'll post more pictures later when there will be more progress.

Claude.

P.S: I didn't replace the rubber friction wheel as it looks good… but maybe I should have?…I dunno...

@toofast,

Looking good … I am in the process of doing a restoration on an old 10M4 Ariens (10000 series).

From what I can tell from the photo, that friction disc looks fine.

I also used Vintage Reproductions (clickitandstickit) for a couple decals … a little pricey, but what the heck, I went this far, why not …
