Interesting. According to the quick skim of the manual I found here, your PTO comes out the back.
Most people installing a Predator have chute crank clearance issues because their crank is on the left (drivers) side. Your chute crank is on the other side, but your engine faces a different direction than most, so you have a conflict on the right side. Is that correct?

Hi dbert. Yes you're correct. Have picture above. Would be a lot of work moving the handle and crank.

One quick thing to check on your engine. It may be something simple.

Could be rings.
Could be the valve is just dirty and stuck open.
Could be the valve is out of adjustment and just needs filed down a little.
Could be the valve spring broke or the keeper popped off.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

I'd give it to u for free. It came off my 68 ariens that was given to me. It ran ok, I removed the carb and muffler but u could swap those from yours. I repowered with a hf clone.

I put a 4 HP Honda on mine - also a 7020. It fit like a glove. I did have to relocate the gas tank. Otherwise, bolt holes lined up, same shaft size, same shaft height and all. I can get a pic for you if want.

Thanks. A picture would be great. Have this blower all ready to go. Just the motor has me stumped.Is the 4 hp powerful enough? Thanks so much..

Its probably a little weak. I didn't get a good chance to try it out last winter. I'll get a pic on here in the next couple days.
