TroyBilt 26" blown 10hp no wheels or rust $25, good deal?
Is I worth it? TroyBilt made by MTD, not terribly old, has a light - I don't care, 26", blown hole in Tecumseh block, no starter, no wheels, looks in good shape, no rust on auger or body, in an area where you may use it 1-5 times a year.
I would either put on an old 8hp Tecumseh or a 212cc Predator engine. I was saving the 8hp for a mid 70s C3 Yardman 24" that had an exposed auger in front and a bit on the side, I was going to use for heavy or frozen EOD left in the middle of the night from the town plows. Opinion too on the use of the 8hp or Predator?
I thought the TroyBilt would be worth more for a flip with a new engine, while I would keep the Yardman and use it occasionally.
