Its not at home yet but is residing safely inside one of my service vans til I can get it home. These pics were from the CL ad, $75 and drove it up the ramp into the cube van. Got a quick look at it after Nick got back to the office, looks even better than the pics. Going to start with a good wash and get more pics up afterwards.

Seeing as its a Allis-Chalmers of the right vintage I am going to hold on to it as a part of my collection. Automotive tire Motor vehicle Thigh Gas Wood

Someone took good care of that one! Nice find Greg!

Happy Birthday Kathy!
It looks like its always been kept inside, dont even see many scratches.

It will be home by this weekend so expect some more in depth pictures as well as an approx age if I can see the numbers on the Briggs.

And thanks to all for the Happy Birthday wishes. Two of her sisters brought cards out tonight from 7 & 15 miles away, other sister sent a card in the mail this week, lives about 12 miles away. Kathy was kind of PO'd about that but she went off to play her dulcimer with some girls in the band so shes having fun doing what she enjoys on her birthday.

Looking forward to the pics!

Just in case you don't already know, the Mfg. no. for your thrower is 2025052. I'm guessing it was built somewhere between 1963 and 1966.

Uploaded some manuals that you might find useful, if you don't already have them.

Thanks Greg, You Are The MAN!!!
I had none of those, had done some searches with just the sno-bee name, but found very little. These three files will be a huge help. Thanks, thanks, thanks, thanks, thanks, .....................you get the idea?
THANKS

I got it. Glad to be of some help.
Greg you may be understating the value of the knowledge you share here with us just a weee little bit. I think you have been more than some help every time you respond to someones post. You seem to have an extensive knowledge of the AC and Simplicity brands.

Heres a few more pics. There is a bracket missing/broken that holds the hood on but other than that seems to be all there.


has a two speed transmission


Foot operated clutch lever for the auger drive (low on the left side)




And the engine plate for you old Briggs guys, not sure how to read the date from serial #.



I am pretty happy with it for the price, has a few oil oozers and the usual briggs carb drips but I think it has lots of potential. And of course now that its home the Boss is aware, at least its not another tractor, and I am still alive

That's really nice, for a machine as old as it is. Glad you're still breathing.
Thanks guys I am going to give it a power wash tomorrow and get a better look at things.

As far as Kathy goes I knew I would be OK. Heres a rough tally for her week at the Evart Funfest in July, she stayed from Tuesday night, Millie and I spent the nights there Friday and Saturday (I worked that Sat) then we all came home Sunday morning

We took the camper over two weeks early to get the spot she wanted rental:14days * $17/day
$238

She bought a new stand for her dulcimer
$125

T-shirt, admission, food and other necessities (at least)
$100

So I figure I got almost $400 of catch up money due me yet

I had one just like yours for about a month. I shined up the points and that Briggs was the easiest starting, best running engine on my place. I ended up selling it to someone who would enjoy it more than I and I didn't really have the room or a need for it. Made a few bucks on it too to pay for parts for my other toys.

Greg, I believe it would be safe to say that your snowthrower is a 1964 model. Your A-C is equivalent to the Simplicity model #990294 and is shown in the manual linked below as model years 1964 thru 1967.

Also, according to information found online and linked below, the 142000 series Briggs engine sequential serial numbers (like on your engine) were changed to the YYMMDDP code format beginning in August, 1964.
