How'd your junk no support predators do?

I made a video of my 212cc predator on my 24" 10000 series ariens. Wow, between the engine and impeller kit I was able to throw snow across street. I did all the neighbors then loaded it up and did moms. I was thinking how great this works when it started to bog and run funny, oh crap! Turned out the governor linkage was icing up. Being that I was making tunnels with the machine can't complain.
Case of no good deed, moms neighbor offered some cash to get the eod stuff. No no pay it forward I enjoy this work..oh hey found your paper, it's the thing jammed in the impeller! Cleared it at home, nothing broke. Wish the Briggs on the log splitter would die!

SO the transplant was a success! You can always ad a little heat shield/shroud in areas where they need it....... a little massaging here and there and it's still a cheap but good running thing huh!

Forgot video! Yeah im going to looks at what others have done as far as shielding. I duct tape the lid from a holiday cookie tin to the top covering muffler, air filter and closing the gap between the tank, I've read on here I should make something for the side as well.

Used the repowered Toro 724 this week for the first time and zero issues. I do intend on fabricating something to make it more of a "snow proof" engine someday.

Talk about self propelled!! Just get another cookie tin, a little trimming and your done.

Work fascinates me.

Rob711,
You should do a tall chute upgrade to your repowered blower.
