Default 1970 Jacobsen Snow Jet 20"

I just aquired this, what seems to be a really nice, snowblower. I found a parts manual on ebay and I now know what I need, but I can not find anywhere to buy parts. Does anyone know where I can find parts for an old Jacobsen snow blower?

Hi,

I also have a 1970 Snow Jet. Currently everything looks to be there, but the fuel tank is leaking. Anyone know of the part number on the tank and if there is an available replacement out there? Any help is much appreciated.

For my B&S 6S, I sand blasted the tank and filled the holes with solder. I found that flux and heat control was important. Getting a good bond and making it look pretty seemed to be contradictory, so I had to do some light filing of the solder to make it look presentable. The filler neck had a bunch of holes in the threaded section, so I filed just enough to let the cap thread on. It seems to work okay, but I get the feeling allot of these caps didn't fit well even on the new tanks.

Thanks for the response Kirk. I thought about patching the holes, but at the same time the inside of the tank is completely full of rust. I cleaned it the best I could using a handful of 1/4-20 nuts and some solution I concocted. But the surface rust on the inside is still there. I may still try to remove the rust using electrolysis.

I know the engine will run - after cleaning the carb and giving it a shot of starting fluid it did indeed fire for a second (I know, not a good idea on a 2-stroke, but it was just a test). With any luck, I'll get it going this week.
