Adding 12 Volt starter to 924024

Hi,
I'm adding a 12 volt starter to my vintage Ariens 924024 8 hp 32 inch snowblower
Anybody done it ?
I have the starter,button,solenoid sourced and can make the wiring,all I need help with is the stock Ariens tray and cover.
My year unit never had the optional choice of a 12 volt starter,I want to try one.
Anybody know if a Ariens 52422200 tray from a st1128 or 1336 will fit ?

Any other ideas, if I've missed anything is appreciated.
PS I know sticking with the 120 volt starter is better but I want to try a 12 volt for fun.

Thanks in advance,

Ariens 924024 8 hp 32” now a 10 hp
Ariens 910008 7 hp 24”

1 am here in Massachusetts, just came in from the shop and saw your post. Tomorrow I will take pixx for you and some dimensions, I just removed a 12volt system on an 11/28 and installed a 110volt setup, refurbished the blower for a house warming gift for my newly wedded daughter. I know she or my new son in law will not maintain the battery, so I saved myself the headache of " It won't Start " . The battery tray is just bolted through the bucket on the right side by 4 1/4" bolts, and the solenoid mounts underneath the tray. Easy setup once you see it.
I also have a local ariens contact for used parts, I'll check with him to see what he has, and how much he wants if he has something to sell.

Found this pixx of it on my phone. Know your machine has the older teardrop style bucket, but I'll see how it fits on that style as I have several project blowers with that style. The plate with the solenoid is sitting on top where battery sits.

Hi Shaw,

That's great,if your parts fit up against a 924024 32 inch bucket,throw them in a box,I'll take them all.
If you want to sell them.
I have not purchased anything yet,just making a list

Thanks for your help,
Ian

Out of curiosity, what's the starter you plan on using?

I'm thinking of doing something similar to my ST1032.

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

No reply yet from my buddy, but found thelse new parts reasonably priced. From the diagram it's parts # 72 through #82. The tray will fit your teardrop bucket perfect, I tested my tray on that style bucket.
Hope that helps......

ELaw: More functional that just adding weight lifting plates to the auger bucket to stop it from riding up, eh? I still have my ST1032, so please post up your battery start mod pics.

Thanks Shaw,
I was using another Ariens model number,and would have ordered the wrong battery tray .
Who knew Ariens had used 12 volt starters on at least 3 models
I will order Monday,I appreciate the help.

Thanks!

It's the starter itself I'm most interested in... I'm going to do my own thing re the battery. Basically I want to fabricate a mount and put an AGM or possibly even a lithium battery right on top of the bucket where a weight would normally mount. So the battery would function as a weight also. I'm sure in Ariens' stock location the battery weighs the front down a little, but I suspect not much as it's so close to the wheels.

1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
