I know it's a 2 stroke and all, but you should be able to get that thing to burn much cleaner....with more powerHere she is singing.
I filled the crank case with motor oil to make sure everything was coated before firing it up. It was puking oil all over and smoking like a tire fire, but when it hit the power band it was running really well.I know it's a 2 stroke and all, but you should be able to get that thing to burn much cleaner....with more power
Wow that auger is really moving and it sounds great. Will be interesting to see how it does in snow.Here she is singing.
One of the unique things I found was the cylinder that’s blocked off has the the crank case filled with red oil (transmission fluid?). It looks to have both drain and fill holes drilled into some bosses.
The oil in the blocked off side is just there to lube that side of the crank. It’s sealed off from the other side. The other side gets its lubrication from the premix.That is one bad-ass snowblower! Those tires are awesome. Seeing how fast that auger spins, it's going to be a great slush-pumper too.
I'm speculating whether or not that blocked off crankcase has been re-purposed to be a lubricating oil reservoir. The red oil would then be 2-stroke oil. An oil pump or maybe just a small orifice is used to meter oil into the crankcase of the active cylinder...
Do you want to sell it?
The auger has a disc that cuts the snow as it moves forward. It’s missing the one on the right hand side (likely from striking an object). I am planning on rebuilding the auger and cleaning it up before putting away for the summer. View attachment 210012
Antarctica too far of a drive? The people demand a video 😂🤣I can’t control the weather and it’s killing me!
OK, a few questions:Action? - here you go!
I plan to do a walk-around video sometime soon too.
You caught it. The ratio is like 3:1 and the impeller is around 1500RPMIs the auger gear standard 10:1 reduction?
