Many Thanks to micah68kj, for posting that Craig`s List ad, for this snow blower. Thought I would post a few pictures of it as it stands now. I will not really get to it, until next spring.

I am replacing 4 of the 5 drive chains. They are directly exposed to the snow. I am using Nickel plated chain to help slow the onset of future rust. I ordered and got the new chain this past week. Also got a new 8 tooth sprocket for the Foote transmission. The sprocket is what broke on the previous owner.

Overall, it looks like a mostly cosmetic restoration. (with maybe a few upgrades) ---- Think I will retain the Kohler engine. It looks really good on there. --- John

Those double deckers are scary looking in a small-animals-have-been-known-to-vanish kind of way. :eek:;)

Congratulations on the purchase. I had a Crary Bearcat that had all of the drive inline like that. Belts, gears, chains, clutches, what a beast. Enjoy it!

Thank goodness you are going to keep that kohler! That machine deserves to kept together if at all possible. It would change the whole look of it with a modern engine on there. She's a beauty, congrats. Gets my vote for the most intimidating snow blower out there!

Very happy you got it, John. I've seen some of your restoration work. Even if you don't do a complete overhaul on it I know it at least has found a good home where it will be maintained well.
I was kind of hoping you'd wind up getting it.
