What would you do?
The last few winters I have been struggling with the Tecumseh 7 HP s on my trio of Ariens 24 " snow blowers. I spend more time tinkering with the darn things , than I do blowing snow. I am tempted to find a modern day replacement engine. Subaru Robin sell a snow blower optioned 7 hp for I'm guessing around 400 $. A real good industrially rated engine. It comes with a 120 vac starter too
Something Chinese for 1/3 the $ ?
Rebuild the Tecumseh ?
Buying a new snow blower not an option. The Ariens' were made with metal here in the USA.
