Perhaps this should be moved to the Ohlsson & Rice section;

All the information you may need for the engine is there, have a look at the carb rebuild thread to start (if you haven't already found it).

Webhead sells replacement carb diaphragms (send him a PM), also don't forget to clean out/replace the old crumbly air filter foam so that it doesn't ruin the engine if it gets sucked in.

 

These augers aren't that common, I can't believe you got given it :jaw: , I've been trying to add one to my collection for quite a while without success.

That's a real nice find, not too many of those are seen.

You will definitely need a new diaphragm. These small engines don't enough vacuum and pressure to pulse a stiff diaphragm. 

here's a link to another one. The shaft is threaded for attaching a drill chuck.  Thought I posted a video of it running to but...
