1970's Ariens, My first post

Hey all, just bought my first snow blower a month ago, an early 70's Ariens 4hp 20", from my research I believe a 22000 series.
Model #922999 serial #006880. It's missing the handle and a couple parts that turn the auger on and off but other than that it's in pretty good shape.

It ran good until the main belt broke which I replaced and now I just can't seem to get it running right.
I cleaned the carb and the bottom screw is turned to between 1 and 1 1/2 and the mixture screw is about 1 1/2 turns as well. I think the governor is off though but I'm not sure what it is supposed to look like. I'm trying to post pictures but apparently I can't since I haven't posted yet.
Is the governor supposed to be straight up and down at either full throttle or throttle off? Thanks in advance for advice.

Hi
Welcome to the forum. If you haven' t disturbed the governor arm yet, don't. It is most likely not the issue anyway. There are some good videos on YouTube that explain how to set up your carburetor. The carb may need a rebuild kit installed or maybe just a good cleaning. MH

Thanks, I messed with the governor some, so it may be out of whack. I've tried tuning the carb and I cleaned it, but it was pretty clean to start with and did run good before the belt issue.
How many posts before I can post pictures?

no location given for pricing, but you can bolt up a honda ohv clone ( 6.5 hp) with just a bit of work, on the cheap. add impeller kit......and you would have a little beast that runs quiet and starts easy. jmo

Ok gotcha, yeah I need to finish updating my info. I'm in WA state. I really don't think this one needs much to get it right, I just don't have any experience with governors.

a $99 predator hemi would be real nice on that machine. but i do agree with taking the effort to make it work with the existing engine

If it comes to that, I wouldn't mind doing it. We'll see how it goes with this first!
