  1. 6.5 B & S will only run with choke 1/2 shut ??

    I'm with @953 nut with the Seafoam. It will not only displace water but it will also clean any small deposits that may have been missed in the carb cleaning process.
  2. 520-H

    Looks great!!

    Hope you have a great day!
  4. I think that I would just stretch out the lower spring until it was the same height as the other one. May be use a port-o-power wedge to stretch it?
  5. 1960's snow thrower

    A #40 and #41 chain have the same pitch, the difference is in the thickness of the chain. A #40 chain will work on a #41 sprocket, but a #41 chain will not work on a #40 sprocket. Measure the thickness of your sprocket. A #41 sprocket will be about .225" thick. A #40 sprocket will be about .30" thick.
  6. Happy Birthday Koen!!

    hope it's a great one!!
  7. Happy Birthday Bob Ellison

    Hope it's a great one!
  8. Pretty good drone pilot

    Cool pics Squonk!! thanks for sharing If you get a chance, I recommend taking in a Gambler's game Jim. $9 to $18 per ticket & some times a game breaks out in between fights.
  9. Simplicity 8 HP tractor - Can it Snow blow?

    If the thrower is a single stage it should have enough power, I don't think it would work with a 2 stage though.
  10. Hi From oHIo!

    We're always glad to help. We will want some pictures as you do your restoration.
  11. My last name is Achterberg, in school it was soon shortened to "Achto" by my friends. This shortened name has been with me a looong time.
  12. "Clyde"--Dad's 953

    That's great news @WHX12. I hope to have the bugs worked out of my Raider this winter. Maybe next year we can get that whole field done.
  13. The time has come.

    Glad things went well for you. May you be granted a speedy recovery.
  14. Whats your Winter Project

    Hmmm My 701? 867? the Franken mutt? I think maybe my Raider 12 plow mule will be the victim this winter. Hope to make this one a trouble free dirt turning machine.
  15. "Clyde"--Dad's 953

    Awesome seeing Clyde & Dad in action together!! What a wonderful gift.
