Traded my trusty old Snapper 622 with a coworker for a 2410, Well it wasn't as good shape as I was led to believe but the co-worker isn't the brightest when it comes to machines so I don't think he intentionally did it. He said the valves were out but wow this engine was a mess, All alum is white and crusty, rust coming through all the sheet metal on the engine, Real strange thing is the blower itself barely has a scratch of rust???? AH well time for a repower. Today I pulled off the engine with plans of bolting up the original engine off my Sno-Tek rebuild as I repaired it and it's good to go. Then when I pulled off the pulleys umm well... WTH it's got a 7/8 shaft and every other chinese engine 208cc and smaller have all had 3/4 inch shafts. The rusty engine is a 179cc by the way. Wish I could have kept it stock but a upgrade to a 208cc will be good. Now I just need to go nutty trying to find some usable pulleys that will line up the belts right. Note to self, Buy any cheap engines sold here LOL Another member sold the 179cc off there 2410 here and I wish I would have purchased it, thought about it but didnt think I would have had a use.
