I am not too up to date on the age of newer looking machines, but it looks plausible. As for the engine it looks like a Tecumseh L head based on the fuel tank.

Thats a pretty decent price, at $300. I would be asking around $400 for, if it was mine.

Yea, sounds like the jets need cleaned. Does putting the choke on slightly cure the surging?

at full throttle and no load it is not that unusual for them to surge. Does it still surge if you put it in gear and hold back on it putting a load on the engine. Beings that it is used a good carb cleaning is still a good idea. Carl.
