It is winter in Ohio and we have a few more months of snowy weather ahead of us. If you are fortunate enough to own a snowmobile, you may find that it needs some maintenance. The Upper Arlington Public Library has a database that might help you with that chore. It is the Small Engine Repair Reference Center. The section on snowmobiles contains “Fundamentals” as well as illustrated repair instructions for 65 newer models, 6 vintage models and a large number of older models dating to the 1960s and 1970s.
If you do not have a snowmobile, but you do have a snow thrower that’s in need of a tune-up, the database covers those as well. Besides a section on “Fundamentals”, there are illustrated instructions for “Adjustments”, “Lubrication”, “Maintenance”, and “Overhaul” for 26 models. In addition, a handy Metric Conversion Chart is available. Models covered date from prior to 1990 to the new ones.
Next spring, when the time comes to do yard work again, keep this database in mind. It contains valuable instructions for riding lawn mowers, walk-behind lawn mowers, rotary tillers, string trimmers and yard and garden tractors.
