Ariens questions

1980 st724 model 924048 ser. 007049.

I noticed 2 things. The chute has zero resistance and the knob just flops. For the direction adjustment.... is there a preload screw to tighten it up?

2nd question is this model has the axle/diff lock. The lock at the hub works but see no engagement. I tried a few tricks but nothing seems to work... suggestions?

Sounds like a missing or broken roll pin in your chute rod control setup, or possibly broken u-joint.
The differential on those machines have three positions where the lock pin will drop into the locating hole and engage the positraction feature. Look closely at the rim where the lug bolts are and you will see the three holes of which i speak of.
