Just Sold the 2 828s

Just sold my 2 828 Yamahas, had a old school guy here today wanted them real bad, he already has 2 older 624 yamahas, and few 828's ,but the 828 yamahas he has he modified the engines, took stock ones off and put a 13hp engine on one and the other one he put a 15hp engine on it, you should here and see that thing throw the snow, the engines came from princess auto, people say they are no good but he had no trouble with them they are honda knock off engines made by Powerfist, he's going to take the 2 yamahas and put 15 hps on them , hes an old school Yamaha collector so with a bit of convincing me and the dollar amout he offered they were gone in a flash, told me to bring my new egg beater 624 yamaha to him and he would put a 13hp on for me, lol

If the engines were terminal, then I might understand the swap. But a running machine...?

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Don't suppose he slows down too much at EODs. Wonder what the weakest link is when you up the power like that. He must be going through shear pins like crazy!!!
