Today I finally mounted the 44" blower, cab, wheel weights, and chains back on the 816 for the winter. And practically guaranteed that there will be no blowable snow for me this winter.:)
Ha! I did the very opposite. For the first time in years I decided not to mount the cab and blower on a 16G. I am going to chance things with a 24" walk-behind blower. I was thinking that would up the chance of SnowMageddon!

:p

I was gearing up the other day. An all onan plow team, and short run and one year wonders. 450 only made from 69 to 71, 817 only made in 77, and my beloved 818-T only made in 78

So, you switch tractors depending of you just push the snow straight ahead, or plow it to the left or right?
LOL no not how it works. Use the 818-T mostly as it sits back at the house. If im in no hurry I'll use the 817, or play with the 450. Not like I have 12 different things to move snow with lol

was snowblowing with my L8 convertible and Gravely slowed down and stopped like it was running out of gas. Tried to restart,,would turn over but not start. Tank is 3/4full. Where do I start ? Thanks!

Is fuel getting to the carb (gas turned off, fuel filter plugged, tank port plugged [might have a screen in there?])?

My other thought would be a stuck valve or carbon under a valve. Have good compression still? After checking the above first.
