Cane across a old dynamark 8/24 with tecumseh engine for $100, says it just needs a carb rebuild but not sure I want to venture into it as parts may be hard to find, hmmm would be nice to have a 24in though, Cosmetically looks real good and looks like it's been indoors and taken care of but oh finding parts would be tough, what do you all think I should do, take a chance or just save my pennies for a bigger machine after the winter is ending and everyone is having buyers remorse lol (love those good deals)

Well..there is only one question to be asked: Do you want an old Dynamark? ;) yes or no.
If you think its cool, and you want to take it on as a project, (and it wont be your one and only snowblower) then go for it!

but $100 is probably too much..
any older (1980's or earlier) Non-Running snowblower really isnt worth more than $50 IMO..
the "non-running" part is key...because you wont know what is wrong until you buy it..could be minor, could be more..

If everything worked, it fires up, auger and impeller turns, transmission works, etc..*then* it could be worth $100..
but in a non-running state, its a gamble..IMO its not worth $100 unless you feel confidant a carb-rebuild is probably all it needs, and if overall condition is good.
$100 isnt bad, but only if you think its in decent condition and you think its *likely* it really only needs a carb rebuild.

I dont know anything about parts availability..other members might be able to advise you on that.

Yea I'm deciding to pass on it, In the pics it looks in real good shape and the engine and starter are even still all black lol look well taken care of but I'm wanting a decent main unit for use, I have a old Snapper 6/22 that runs great and started first pull a few weeks ago but when the plow goes by it really struggles in the deep stuff and the little old guy (my 75 yr old neighbor) Well I think his might be a MTD but is larger and has little trouble in the stuff mine struggles with, But I still try and get the heavy stuff moved for him none the less, and he's thankful and since I started helping him his wife seems to be a LOT friendlier lol They used to be the neighbors who looked the other way when you were there lol. Well hoping to find either a decent Husky or airions at the end of the season so my little Snapper will hold out another winter.... (That just sounded wrong there)
