Old Mont. Wards snow blower

I am new here and find the site very interesting.
I was given an OLD Mont Wards snow blower (2 stage) I no not know the model however it is extremley heavy and almost looks like a Troy bilte type.
Starts great but at odd times it will shut off . No black smoke but I do have flame from the exhaust at times . I need to replace the rope on the starter ( copied the great thread on replacement).
God bless.

i would start by pulling the carb and giving it a good cleaning. usually any old machine that has set can benefit from cleaning the carb.

The easy starting should eliminate the carburetor as being the problem. The flames from the muffler indicate an ignition problem. You have two choices: 1-replace the points & condensor OR spend a few extra bucks and replace the original ignition coil with a solid state coil therby eliminating the points & condensor and all the hassles that go along with them. This machine likely has a Briggs engine. What are the ID #'s of the engine? If it is an 8 horse the model will start with 19, if it's a 5 horse it will start with 13. The model, type and code will be needed. Post back with these and I'll provide the part number(s) for your two options.
