FREE Snapper Snowblower Found In Ditch Will it Run?

Makina dhe automjete

I found this Snapper 5HP snowblower in the ditch left for dead on the way to the shop for FREE. So, of course, I couldn't pass it up. I checked with the previous owner and the Gal said it just stopped running some time ago, and they couldn't get it running again. Think this old machine will come back to life and run again?

    I had a similar experience with an old push mower. The neighbor had hit a tree root with it and it wouldn't run so it was sitting at the curb in the trash. I was going to save the deck, but thought I would take a shot at getting it running first. Turns out the keyway for the flywheel had sheared so a 50 cent keyway and probably 15 minutes with the wrenches and she was good to go. I took it back and my neighbor was just getting ready to go spend $350 on a new one. It's all about the way people were brought up.

    You can order the right carb off eBay for $10.56, I know this because I ordered one 2 weeks ago, (Carburetor for TORO 421 521 Snow Blower Carburetor & Gasket 632107 632107A C-16) then the choke and shield fit back on. I’d be glad to buy it and mail it to you if you put it on that lady’s snowblower for her. Let me know.

    Get the serial number off of it, and you can research online and find out. The serial number on a Snapper is just like the VIN on a car. It will tell you what model year that it is.

    I've seen a video of someone micro-tig welding the float pin post back on a carburetor. I didn't know there is such a thing as micro-tig welding, but there is. Might be worth it to repair a vintage motorcycle carb, but probably overkill for this application.

    There is a great trick to make those throw snow an slush like a mother. All you need is some rubber flaps (can be made out of an old rubber floor mat) some self tapping screws and some washers. All you have to do is screw the flaps to the edge of the 2nd stage impeller to take up the gap between the impeller and the drum.
