    Not sure if you have all seen this machine or not but if wet sticky snow is your problem this week and your blower seams to run outta steam when you really need it to perform then this little gem may be your answer? She is a little loud with a normal 92db at idle and considerable more with rpms. She started life as a 454 ci and puts out 412hp and 430of torque so it will handle ANY snow you put in front of it [or anything else!]

    Look at the exhaust port spacing.

    Most of the time, my Ariens fills up with snow before it bogs down, so I don't know how that big, inefficient, expensive, and loud engine would help. With that huge differential in the center, I doubt that the snow can even efficiently get to the impeller.

    Yes. They changed the port spacing to get the intake runner lengths as consistent as possible.

    Buick distributors were up front. Olds/Pontiac in back like Chevy.

    Appears to be a big block Chevy with the wrong headers. Look at the front of the heads, nothing else is cast like that. And the factory square-head plugs screwed into the ends, never seen any other with those same plugs. Also, distributor in back and oil filter location are clues.
