History
My father purchased this snow blower new in 1968
Photos of restoration process of this snow blower.

I did a valve job, replaced carburetor, muffler, head gasket, axle bushings and impeller bearing. The auger bushings were in excellent condition, so I didn't replace them.

The machine was disassembled, degreased, primed and painted.

This was my first attempt at a restoration and I found it a very rewarding and enjoyable experience.
