So what's wrong with it?
Won't start? Stalls out? Only goes in reverse? Augers run backwards?

Give us a hint, and I'm sure someone here can help you.

AH, if it was not running well or its just dead;

1. shut the fuel tank off
2 remove the fuel drain bolt from the fuel bowl
3. drain the fuel bowl
4. replace the fuel bowl drain bolt-hand tight
5. pour some sea foam in the tank
6. start the engine and let it run
7. let it run until the fuel tank is empty
8. pour in fresh fuel and a bit of seafoam and shut the drain valve off on the tank until you need the snow mule for the next snowfall

I hope this helps if its running poorly or not at all.

Oneacer:

Oh yeah.....I have to catch that one every year around this time. One of my favorite movies. I guess mostly because it reminds me of my own childhood. Even though the story setting pre-dates my childhood by maybe 7 or 8 years, there's still so much that I can relate to, and it still provides a lot of laughs!
