    Yes, it all depends on what kind of bit is, and how old it is. This will be pretty cool to get this going, though! Does it run?

    Oh, is this the one that had no front wheel? I think you posted a shot of it on another thread, if it is the sae one I'm thinking of. If it is blue, I'm thinking Parker. They used to be light blue years ago.

    Yes that was the blower, but here is mower for the people that havent seen it. The fan was red but it was really wore so that is why there is primer on it now.

    The picture of the discharge is were i think a piece is missing, the flap on the outside flips up to blow but should there be something across the front of it when i have the outside open?

    looks like an old school billy goat. The piece thats missing is supposed to open up to allow air flow out the front. Once those break we normally just have the piece welded shut

    That's not a Billy Goat. That's a repainted original Giant-Vac. I'd bet a 4-bladed welded steel fan. They are now marketed as a Giant-Vac "Classic" but it has a different fan now. The little tab above the discharge in the 1st photo is where the spring for the forward discharge attaches. That and the front cover and wishbone are the dead giveaways for me. It's my job and in my blood to recognize blowers, vacs, loaders, etc. and their respective manufacturers.
