Which Model do I have?

How do I attach my pics of my presumably early 1960s Sno Thro? I think this is one of the 1st Ariens models since it has the single lever for both wheels and augers. Model number is worn off. I need to replace the friction disc after this season as it has some cracking and wear showing. Can someone please tell me which model I have or at least narrow down? I don't see an option to post an attachment. Not sure how to post a URL to my pics.

I'm gonna guess you have a 10M-L55. This would be an early 60s model, judging by the half circle bucket. I'm guessing 10M-L55 because the tag on your engine has a serial number that says H55, which should mean "horizontal" and "5.5 hp"

I'm sure Scot will chime in and correct this and likely add more helpful information. If you haven't checked his website out yet, be sure to do so!

Heck of a machine you've got there!

My machine:
1979 Ariens 924039 (24", 8hp w/ differential)

Thanks sir. I will see what Scott says. I plan on degreasing and re-painting it to make it look like new. Hopefully I get a lot more years out of it.

Stang called it! I agree, that's a 1961 model 10M-L55.
thats the only known model with that big square heater box.
nice one too! looks like its in very nice shape..
(could maybe be a '62, but its most likely a '61)

Info about the "first series" :
The Ariens 1960's and 1970's Sno-Thro info site.

Here is the owners manual.
http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/st-62.pdf

(Its likely that the 1961 and 1962 10M-L55 were completely identical, so the one manual will cover both years)

BPJ, send me an email to: sscotsman at yahoo dot com
and I will email you back the Tecumseh engine manual.

Scot
