Picked up a Snapper 2160151 from a local lady who said it has a broken crank. Anyhow we brought it home, no broken or even bent crank but it will rip your arm off when you pull the string. A little closer look and low and behold, no blade on it so of course it pulls your arm out of the socket. Anyway I tried looking on Snappers website for a parts breakdown and came up empty handed. It's got a 6hp Tecumseh on it if that helps. All we're working with is the shaft, the blade adapter thing and blade are long gone. Do you guys know anywhere to get a parts diagram for this mower or if there is another piece of equipment I can steal the blade adapter from? I tried to use one I had laying around from a Murray but the shaft on the Snapper is to large in diameter. I would assume many will fit but I dont know where to look. Thanks

6hp and steel deck, not sure what series it is as the model search on snapper.com turned up nothing. I never knew they came with Tecumseh motors but I guess they did. Every one we have had previously had a B&S or WR. How would I figure out which series it is?

Cool looks like I see the part I need, 1 question though. How would I know if it needs the 1/16 or 3/16 spacer?

So is everything all good now? Does the blade adapter have a spline? I have an adapter for a Tecumseh, but it's for a spline shaft.

By spline do you mean that little notch in the shaft that aligns with the protrusion in the adapter?

check to see if flywheel key is also sheared. this happens easy on this engine. snapper used tech engines for some models. should say big 6 on the shroud. me and my neighbor have this same model. that splined blade adaptor looks like it came from an ariens
