my snowblower

this is my first and only snowblower. was going to get a better brand instead found this one for 150.00 in the middle of summer.
dont know if i got the pics right but it is a mastercraft 4/21 made by noma model# 60-3975-8 581523

in the last two winters ive:
changed both belts
changed friction disk
added those plastic side shoes
changed all fuel lines
home made spacer kit for impeller
new pull cord
synthetic grease moving parts
yearly oil changes.

ive done okay finding parts for the 4hp Tecumseh engine.
have had a hard time finding body parts though. im looking for a new scraper blade with no luck.
i think its kind of an odd unit. i would be glad to hear of any info on it
thanks.
Jay.

For a scrapper blade you might have to get a 24 in blade from Canadian tire or any dealer the cut it with a saw drill a hole or to and should work out good .

Jay, welcome aboard! Do you get a lot of snow in your locale?

that is a good idea. for some reason the one on my machine has slots instead of holes.
i dont know if its the original or if i should be adjusting it as well as the shoes. im sure i could make slots though.

not overly maybe 4 inch of wet stuff per snowfall.
however about 5 times a year we will get a foot over a day, that tends to equal a town of chaos.

That is how they are for adjustment. The cutting edge is a fairly soft steel and should cut easy. Take the old one off and match up holes mark new edge then hack saw or chop saw should be a easy fix.
