Last summer I picked up this old beast for $20 at a garage sale. Im familiar with Moto-mower show-sharks but ive never seen a green and white one. its got a white Kohler k141. Anyway I just got it running and moving and it pumps the snow out like no other. Its probably going to replace my simplicity s4 as the daily unit.

Nice to see it still working. Might want to upgrade those tires though. Wouldn't be stock but you'd get a lot more traction with the newer style.

Ya that would probably be a good idea. It does pretty well now but its biggest limitation is traction. I wonder why all these old blowers had such small wheels?

Hello Gentlemen !
I also have been fortunate to have had a very good friend of mine who has since passed away, give me a
Moto-Mower Snow Shark II !
It spent the last forty years of it's life sitting outside in the elements !
UGH !
So much rust !
Rusted chains, rusted flange bearings, rust on top of the rust !
However, I am a distributor for a product called
Primrose Chain and Cable Lube !
A few days of soaking in it, and they are like brand new !

However, I am missing the inner drive sprocket.
If possible, could anyone tell me what the sprocket size is ?
Shaft size, number of teeth, etc.
My unit has an 8hp. Briggs and Stratton engine.
And boy, do I ever agree with you about the tire size !
Too darn narrow, too darn small, and should even consider tire chains !
Any input, advise, parts, you name it, I can use the help !

Maybe some chains will help as another option.
