Hi, Just picked up a 2 stage, 44 inch toro snow blower attachment. Going to run it on a 1991 416-8 wheelhorse. Wondering how well it will handle the bigger blower. IT is quite heavier than the 42 inch single stage currently in use. The 2 stage has some rust in the blower and shute area. Should I blast and paint first or just give it a try. I know wet snow seems to stick to the shute of the single stage easily. I do use PAM no stick or silicone most times. All I am missing is the one spring assisit that goes on the lift arm under the tractor. Got the big one that goes between blower housing and front of tractor. Any body have a part # for the lift handle spring assist?
Thx
Al

Spring #90106 replaced by Toro #4629 and they want about $25 for it.

The 4629 spring is 7-1/2" between the hooks. The coil is 1-1/2" in diameter x 5-1/2" long. There are 24-1/2 coils and the wire is .220" diameter. You may find an alternative at a hardare supply or rob the one from the tiller which is the same spring.
