    2078 hours and a few more pictures. I believe it is a 50" deck based on a tape measure as the ID tag is missing. The deck has also had some welding done on it.

    I think the only way to get the snow removed from the area "over the hump" so to speak, is to lengthen the front lift rod to allow the blower to ride on the skid shoes. Is this on a manual lift 200...

    Well, I took just about everyone's advice here and pulled lots of parts off. All that's left behind is a small pile, mostly frame and fender pan.

    My rear tires are filled with about 7 gallons of fluid each, plus 100 pounds of iron plus chains, say 160 pounds added to each wheel. I used to leave my tiller on the back, but now I have a homemade...

    I didn't even think about the steering box, good idea. Front rims might be OK, but all the tires are bad, and the rear rims are chewed up too.

    As far as parting it out, I might put up what's left...

    I used the threaded rod in order to get fine adjustment. The original had a few inches of thread. I find when I switch from blade to blower, it needs a bit of length adjustment to really dial it in.

    I wouldn't adjust the tension with it running because of the safety aspect. I know that if the belt tension on my 332 is too high it spits the belt straight out the front.
