I pulled yet another old Wards (orange & white) snowblower out of the weeds
and brought it in to work on it. Parts of it looked familiar but parts
didn't. I played around with it a while before I saw a dog-tag that I had
put on it. It was one that came from a brother several years ago that I
never ran - not the one I thought that I had run year before last. It's a
GIL - 490B, 7HP, 1972. I won't waste much time on this one - probably just
use it for parts.
Changed my mind. Talked to brother and he said it was running when he
passed it on to me - so my nephew talked me into the challenge. I had taken
it out to my power equipment graveyard but I'll bring it back in, fill the
cylinder with Marvel Mystery / kerosene, take the carb off & clean it,
replace the gas tank, fuel line & fuel filter, take the recoil off and clean
it & lube it, clean off the flywheel - and see what happens.
