SCRAPER BAR
The scraper bar is not adjustable, but is reversible. After
con sid er able use it may become worn. When it has worn
almost to the edge of the housing, it can be reversed,
providing additional service before requiring replacement.
Replace a dam aged or worn scrap er bar.
TO USE DRIFT CUTTERS (See Fig. 19)
Use the drift cutters to cut through deep snowdrifts that are
higher than the front of the snow thrower.
Loosen upper adjustment nut enough to allow drift
cutter to be raised to highest position and tighten nut
securely. Repeat for opposite side of snow thrower.
When not using drift cutters, loosen adjustment nut,
lower to storage position and tighten nut securely.

ADD GASOLINE (See Fig. 20)
Fill fuel tank to bottom of tank fi ller neck. Do not over-
fi ll. Use fresh, clean, regular unleaded gasoline with
a minimum of 87 octane. Do not mix oil with gasoline.
Purchase fuel in quan ti ties that can be used within 30
days to assure fuel freshness.
WARNING: Wipe off any spilled oil or
fuel. Do not store, spill or use gasoline
near an open fl ame.
CAUTION: Alcohol blended fuels (called gas-
o hol or using ethanol or methanol) can attract
moisture which leads to separation and for-
ma tion of acids dur ing storage. Acidic gas can
damage the fuel system of an engine while in
storage. To avoid engine problems, the fuel
system should be emptied be fore stor age of
30 days or longer. Drain the gas tank, start
the engine and let it run until the fuel lines
and carburetor are empty. Use fresh fuel next
season. See Storage In struc tions for ad di tion al
information. Never use engine or car bu re tor
cleaner products in the fuel tank or per ma nent
damage may occur.
