Last winter we got whacked with storm after storm and EVERY storm my old snowblower broke. So every storm I have to fix it AND move the snow. . Most of the parts came from my local dealer or next day via currier. One storm was too big and too bad. That's when my drive cable broke. Previous storm I replaced my drive-wheel which no doubt contributed to the cable's demise. So I'm standing there in the garage looking for a cable... Or a spring (or a gun). Holding the busted spring in my hand it reminded me of a certain spring that I've seen before. Specifically it looked a bit like one of the springs from a Sprite rear drum brake. All I had to do was slide the Sprite spring down the cable where it came to rest on top of the busted piece. It made the cable longer, but I was able to take up the adjustment on the other end of the cable. I was right back in the battle with the blizzard! And that's how my Sprite got me through a Blizzard...
