I just got back from a 60 mile ooh ride to pick up a couple of blowers from a guy that is a junker...a 73 22000 series Ariens, complete, no spark...good compression , and a Jacobsen Imperial 26 with what appears to be a 7 or 8 hp Tecumseh......starts on ether so I'm sure will run again with a carb cleaning. The Ariens is such a cute little thing....how is the performance? any feed back on the Jacobsen as far as performance or desirability? I just love bringing these back from the dead! On an unrelated note, today I put a older greyhound Chonda that I had on the shelf for eight or nine years on a POS Craftsman 5-22 that I picked up with a blown motor at the town recyling center yesterday....looks great with the new motor, and everything works well, but Murray certainly didn't spend much effort making a quality product! I bet the Craftsman will sell easier then any of my Ariens or Toros ...People that are looking for an inexpensive blower don't recognise the quality in the classic machines!.
