Hey I'm new, thanks to Scott's Website I was able to find this great site. Basically in Winter when I'm laid off from paving I shovel this year I decided to get into the snow blowing business and do everything on my own. Got my first Ariens last year it was a friends grandfathers 1968 6 HP Deluxe. Works great everything original but when I pull the chord every time it gets stuck half way on the first pull and then the second pull is fine and it always starts on that second pull. I later Purchased a 1973 8 HP Ariens Deluxe, chord was replaced on it at some point and numerous other things and runs great so I use this as my main machine. I have a 1974 6 HPD also that some guy considered "Junk" That will be a summer restore project which I will film and put on here, but currently use it as a parts machines. I would like to keep the 68 as original as possible is their a way to fix or adjust the chord? Or possibly swap it with the 74? Sorry if this is a newb question I'm used to working on Mack's lol.
