Well here's an opposite thing to yours ... hah. Got the 30+ year old snowblower running today. Hasn't run in years. Fresh oil (had to use a heat gun to get it to drain it was so cold and thick), gas, and a whole bunch of yanks and a few carb cleaner sprays and it fired up! Tires are bad and leaky, and it needs some minor other work, but it runs strong. We may get a 1-2 double storm set this week and I'd rather not break my back like I did last week.
