Hi there...I'm new to this site and was hoping the experts out there could give me some pointers on a Snapper Hi-Vac I just bought. I searched the forums for this info and came up empty-handed. The Snapper I bought used of course. It appears quite old and is the Hi-Vac variety with a steel deck. I can't tell what year or model it is, and to complicate things it does not have the original engine (it has a Honda HRC216 on it that starts first pull every time.) The self-propel system does not work at all. It appears fairly simple to work on and I am fairly handy so I plan to work on it myself. The belts are there and though old, I'm guessing they are not the issue. I know many of you out there have rebuilt these and it's these experiences I would like to tap into. Please give any advice/pointers/things to look for/tell me off for posting incorrectly, etc. I thank you in advance for all of the sage advice.
