I just picked this little beauty up! I'm amazed at what nice shape it is for being a 1973! I bought it for only $75, because the engine won't turn over. It has spark and good compression, so I'm sure the carb is plugged up.











It's a baby compare to my new Cub Cadet!

Thanks! I took the carb cover off last night. One of the linkages was not connected, so that may be why it wouldn't fire. The carb looked really clean inside, but I'm going to clean it up and put a rebuild kit in it anyways.
The engine has an oil leak, the lower half is covered in oil/dirt mix. I bought a gasket set for $20, so I'll change them all out.
What's a good source for new belts? I tried a brief search online, but didn't find any.

Congrats on the new blower! Man look at the difference in the augers and gearbox. The old ones were just built to last compared to today.
