I bought this from a guy this year and am planning on getting it running and restoring it. I am going to need help doing that. Most won't understand [in this throw away generation]. It's an exciting time. I've only got one project as I set out a bunch of stuff for the metal collectors. A nice old Simplicity Snowthrower that I did not want to throw away but now I don't have to worry about it anymore.

The 924 series twin stick machines are a good unit. Well built and easy to work on.

All spruced up, with some nice XTrac tires and Poly skids, that unit will give you many years of reliable service.

I have to wonder if folks store this stuff in thier swimming pools or what . . . I don't think I could get a machine to rust like that if I tried!

Its the fact that many people store these outside in the elements .... most try and throw a tarp over them, some don't even do that.

The guy I bought it from had a small engine repair spot and stored a lot of that stuff outside in the back of his tire shop. He's older and wanted it all gone. I picked up a bunch of stuff for a reasonable price.
It's a complete tear-down in my opinion...

Speaking of that the wheels are locked up. Any suggestions on what it is? I haven't even looked at it yet to determine what the cause is...

These are really nice to work on. As you check things out, note and pay attention to how things operate ... It will give you a good understanding of things. Also a better understanding of what might be wrong when something goes haywire.
