    Does ok on the front of cars. I guess it depends on how thick it would be.

    I've always sprayed the chute with Pam, WD40, silicone spray, etc prior to snow removal. Other than straight up slush, I've found the spray approach rather effective at preventing clogs.

    gorilla tape is holding up real well for patching holes that rocks & gravel have worn thru the auger housing on my Honda, so well in fact, (I'm on the 2nd season) that if it does wear out, I will just fix it with more gorilla tape

    I've tried multiple things over the years including teflon spray and spray car wax, the silicone seems to work the best on the plastic chute on the MTD. The steel chute on the TB might try the wax again.

    As I've pointed out I-don't-know-how-many-times, I have a 20 year old Craftsman 7.75HP/26" that I regularly beat the piss out of to this day. Granted, I plow with the ATV the first few storms to help sweep up my woodsplitting mess and an occasional quick clean-up after the smaller snowfalls. But that fuckin' piece of shit still starts by the third pull, even after sitting all summer. It has an electric start, but I've never once used it. In fact, I couldn't tell you where the cord is for that if my life was threatened. My chute is still good (gravel and crushed stone driveway on a dirt road, plus my woodsplitting mess) and the deflector stays put - although it's very much a manual movement held in place by a wingnut...

    I do the recommended maintenance at the end of every year. I've only been through one friction wheel (I still have an extra on hand), and only did the belts once. It's bailed many a neighbor out plenty and done our road a time or 328 as well. Not to mention the time it's spent on the lake helping to clear a one-mile track...

    Re: Snowblower

    I would like to think that if I didn't buy my snowblower for a mortgage payment.. All of this rain would have been snow.

    So you're welcome for this heat wave. Snowblower

    Those were manufactured by Murray in Canada. They are still sold as Simplicity, as Briggs & Stratton acquired both companies (only the Signature Pro is a simplicity design). So you should be able to get most parts there.

    There is huge commonality among friction wheels, I think everyone copied NOMA, not sure though.

    I genuinely like the fact that at 4:02 am you’re thinking of highly modified snow clearing machines.

    Only thing I admire about Trump is his bank account, and even that shows to be really wealthy you have to choose your parents very carefully.

    I gotta be blatantly honest with you: I really couldn't care about any of this. And any part I've needed can be had simply enough by going to craftsman.com. Seriously, I'm not sure why this would matter...

    I was given a Murray Brute 827. I had to source some parts that were discontinued. I ordered up some craftsman parts that fit with no issues. The parts fiche looked exactly the same even though the part numbers were different between brands.

    Re: Snowblower

    My 20 yr old Yard Machines finally nope'd out of it's first storm last night. Would. Not. Start. 120v electric start has never fired it up for me, but gave it a try and I'm pretty certain the starter is fried. I have spark, I have some compression, suspect pilot circuit in the carb is gummed up. Given it's behavior in the past couple of years I'm guessing the valves are starting to recede too far into the block and I'm running out of clearance. No adjustment available, you have to replace the valves once they tighten up, assuming your seats aren't gone too, which this motor apparently is known for eating. Diag tear down this weekend, may repower the machine with a Harbor Freight Predator motor or just retire it.
