I am the proud owner of a late 70's Ariens 832 (924024) and I would like to add a headlight. I have searched through the forum and havent been able to locate anything that explains the requirements in detail of how to do this. I am kind of a purist freak and would like to convert the unit to how it would come from the factory. The engine(HM80-155128D) looks all original and i am assuming it did not come equipped from the factory with the necessary equipment (flywheel/alternator?). That said, I havent opened her up to take a look either.
What i would like to know is...
1. Can this engine be used?
2. Can it be done simply and or relatively inexpensive? (I am pretty mechanically inclined and have handled a wrench many times)
3. What specifically (parts)do i need to consider to do this?
If anyone has specific part numbers and or pictures of the parts i would need i would appreciate you sharing with me. I am sure i have left out valuable need-to-know info so please feel free to ask
Lastly, i want to thank everyone in advance for your help. If you have responded to any earlier post on any topic, you have helped me out in understanding these great machines.
