Hey everyone, Im Cody. I live in Two Rivers Wi. which is a little town on the shore of Lake Michigan. Im new to the site and also to the world of snowblowing. Im learning pretty fast on what it takes to use and care for a vintage snowblower. As for the snow blower, it is a 1986 (I think) Gilson, it has a 10hp Tecumseh and 32" cut. It was given to me for free by my neighbor last summer, he was going to take it to the junk yard. So rather then let him scrap it, I took it off his hands. It hadnt bee ran in 2 years or more he said. So in October it took a trip to the small engine shop where the carb was rebuilt, it runs like a dream now.

In the past few weeks I have completely striped it down and replaced a few worn parts and am in the process of giving it a new paint job. You can check out the photos here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/gilsonsnowblowers/photos/album/598665182/pic/list

And I also have what maybe a very dumb question posted on the forum here: http://www.snowblowerforum.com/forum/snowblower-repairs-maintenance-forum/538-track-drive-conversion-question.html

I look forward to talking with all of you and discussing all things snowblower.

Thanks for having me here,
Cody

Welcome to the group Cody. Old machines are great, and free ones are even better! Hope to hear more from you in the future.

My daughter went to college at Grand Valley State University in MI, just west of Grand Rapids. That when she learned about "lake effect" snow. She could not believe that they did not cancel classes even when they got 12" of snow overnight !
