identify and require parts for Bolens

I have this old Artic 75 snowblower that was given to me. I have had it for about 2 years now and try to keep it in good working order. This year the friction disk gave out on me. I am having a hard time trying to identify the model, finding the right part, and if possible some type of manual. Any help would be appreciated.
The only thing I can make out on the tag was under Model 7503 and I'm not sure if that is even right.

Huggyd, here is a little info I found for your machine. Unfortunately, I could not find the friction disc using part number 1720 859 according to the parts list.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Yes, the Bolens Artic 75 line was contract made by Ariens.

Here are pictures of the inside of the tractor half of my 1969-70 Ariens 6/24 - it is nearly identical to the inside of the tractor half of your model. My tractor model is #10960 and my bucket model is #10995. This should help you in the future tracking down Ariens parts...

Ok thanks

Any Idea what I'm in for? I am a hand guy and have all the tools, I think I'll need to do the job but have never changed these out before. Should I be setting aside the day to complete the task??

The majority of Bolens snowblowers are *not* made by Ariens..most are MTD's. But this one does happen to be an Ariens!

specifically an Ariens 10,000 series, made in the 1965 to 1974 time frame.
