Is anyone in the market for parts for a 1958 Craftsman snow thrower before it goes to the scrap yard.  I bought it for the cleated steel wheels for one of my crazy projects.   It is all there and the B/S engine turns free.  It will be available until spring then it has to go.   The tag reads 538-82121.  Need more info, let me know.

 

Dave

I don't have a picture of mine now because it has been torn apart but it looks very similar to either of these.  Mine does not have the front roller wheels.  It looks more like the top pic without the engine cover.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Dave

You asked for the type on the B/S engine.  See pics.  I have never seen anything like this before.  It seems to have a waterproofing kit on it.  Notice the spark plug cover and the air cleaner cover.  Maybe that is why they put a large cover over the engine in the later models.  See earlier post.

My father bought one new along with the Sears SS12, used it for years in southern Ohio and here in Western Ma, i recall the tracks it left behind in the snow.

Dave, Williamsburg, Ashfield and Westhampton,

 

We have meet already several times at the local fairs, i seen your collection, did not see you this year because i missed all the shows exsept for Bernardston and i was only there on Sunday for the tractor parade with the Squire 9 GT.

 

No worries, we will meet again.
