First post... first time snow blower owner... full disclosure, I'm a tech nerd (make computer chips for a living) and very much not handy when it comes to engines etc. I try, but not always successfully.
Anyway... Just bought a used 2690 XP (model 31AM73R3711, which I think makes it a 2011 or 2012?).
I'm considering two modifications and have a question about one:
1) impeller scrapers (or whatever people call them... drill some holes, add some heavy duty rubber to clear the impeller area and not let wet/heavy snow get caught in the chute).
2) LED headlights.
I think my neighbor (who is pretty mechanically inclined) will help me do the impeller mod.
I've done a tone of research on the LED headlights, but electrical and wiring is definitely not my strong suit.
I've ordered nearly all the parts I need to do it (bridge rectifier, capacitors etc. etc).
So here's the question: my blower has 2 wires coming out of it:
Red for heated grips
Yellow for headlight
Can anyone confirm that the yellow is DC directly and what's the voltage?
I plan to try to measure it but again I thought I'd ask here before I google "how to use a multi meter".
Sorry if this isn't the best place for this post... I can/will move the bulk of this post to modifications forum/section and especially the LED mod, the thread on that is great!
thanks to all!
