Hi. the guides are still available, you might want to also mic the valve stems too. I have a G14 and a 1556 that both need guides and valves. The stems are wore about .006".
I been wondering about the big mufflers. Was it a heater core to heat the cozy cab? Glove dryer? I like to use the deck to clear leaves, I am afraid this one will blow em out of the way.
There is no sticker on the deck, all the parts diagrams I have seen show 2 ski's, this one only has one, Also has a ton of metal to the right of outer blade, at least 18 inchs from the blade tip. The shell is 55 inchs overall. The chute (which is barely in the pic) is welded on and looks factory, could have been added on by some skilled worker though. Can anyone id this one?
