Well today I have an update. The unit that had the newspapers run through it has passed on, died.
Since the impacts we knew it was bad and wanted to pass on fixing it due tO it being old. So since that day it actually has vibrated and basically broke 1 bolt after another that holds the engine to the housing until today while working in wet leaves it began to kill the engine.
They said it started up , run 30 seconds and died then they started it back and it continued to act the same way while they finished the job, they brought it to the shop to swap and I checked te machine, oil in the engine so why is it locked up?? Then I see it , the paddle wheel had rubbed the back wall enough to ware a spot in the housing, and with the fan against the wall it is locked up,
I considered drilling out the bolts but it's just not worth the effort.

Mulch them up or buy a new one. Off season is a great time to get a good deal.

What is it with the darn phone company who every year seems to toss the phone books onto the sidewalk the night before it snows, just so they get sucked into my snowblower?

I have several hundred feet of piles ready to load and it is just nasty out. I will be out $ 7 grand by the time the loader and trailer comes in. I have a 2 week wait best I can tell , when ever I order it.
