New To Me (Maybe) Toro CCR 2000

I'm thinking about picking up a used Toro CCR 2000 snow blower off of CraigsList. The ad says that it is a Toro2000, I assume s/he means CCR 2000. It also says that it starts, but doesn't stay started. I'm not even close to an expert on engines, but if I can get this for a song, then spending some time and a little cash to get it running might be a fun project.

If/when I go look at it, what should I look for?

I assume the problem is in the carb., probably dirty, are there any other likely culprits that might cause this problem that I can be on the look out for?

Being this is a two cycle motor, leaking crankcase gaskets or crankshaft seals could be a "possible" problem. Two strokes rely on compression AND vacuum to function correctly. Unless the engine has a cracked block or scored piston and cylinder wall, it could be a cheap fix. Hopefully the owner didn't run it and ruin it on straight gas.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

not sure about the ccr 2000, but the paddles on my ccr 6053 are a bit pricey up here !

most likely its a carb problem. make sure the scraper bar hasn't worn away and the housing around the auger isn't ground down

Smolenski, I've owned a couple of these Toros and the parts are really expensive unless you can find good, used parts. I bought what appeared to be a really nice CCR2000E for $US100 and ended up putting a couple hundred more into it and it still wasn't right. It was a huge error on my part even though the machine looked nearly new.

$50. I definitely will not pay that much for it though. A new carb. is north of $150. That would be a total of $200 and that doesn't include a scraper or paddles. At that point, I could buy new.

Thanks for the advice and warnings. I have contacted the owner, but haven't heard back yet.
