9hp tecumseh question

Hello All,
Earlier this year I picked up a simplicity snow away 9 from a friend for a good deal. He never snowblows his sidewalk because it is all heaved. It needs a carb cleaning because it will only run on full and half choke, but thats not my problem.

The problem is that there is air blowing out from the "back" of the engine(towards the chute). I dont think its normal, so I figured I would ask you all.

Also, where can i find auger case grease?

Is the air from the exhaust, or something else? If it's something else it might be a blown head gasket and would possibly make a whistling noise.

For the chute use Fluid Film as spray on as it works very well and as for the blow at the I agree with Slowrider22 less the whistling.

Good Luck

Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.

Are you sure it's not just the cooling air coming off the block, being created by the flywheel fan? I mean, if a head gasket leaks so bad you can feel the air, it doesn't seem to me like the engine would start....?

As for the gear lube, I bought some off eBay. It was a tube with an MTD label. Holy moly, it was expensive though, at $20!! There must be a cheaper solution....

Where do you get it? Napa looks at me like I'm from Mars when I ask for it.

It does seeem like it could be from the flywheel fan. It seems to be coming from the top of the block from around the fins. I was wondering it was normal for the flywheel fan to push so much air.
Thanks!

the flywheel fan will push a good amount of air as it is needed to cool the engine.

I think the problem is not a problem at all than! Thanks guys!

Also, there is a light on it, and its not working. Are there common problems with the conncections? I really dont want to tear everything apart to fix it if I dont have too.
