This is the second thing that came in for cleanup from the recent flood around here. So glad I'm 50 feet higher than the river. Murray Snowblower with two stroke. What a mess. It's going to be a long Spring and Summer. The best ones are the ones that sit for 6 months in the Summer heat, after the waters go down. Can't wait. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3QZi7DYWYM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJ-jvi1pWS0

Just this morning had a customer bring in an OLD generator that had been under water. It is a Tecumseh with points. I cleaned the water from the tank, the sediment bowl, and took the carb apart and blew out all the water, filed the points and of course cleaned the water out. Changed the oil, and it runs great. Put lots of Iso-heat in the new gas.
Yeah, I had a ginormous (Paul Bunyan sized) Stihl chainsaw that cleaned/dried up and ran earlier today. Very happy owner! Very unhappy shoulder from pulling. Even got the cheapo Poulan chainsaw going this afternoon. Three for three...just jinxed myself.
