Rebuilding another 10/32 ariens

Starting on another ariens 10/32 rebuild.
Sadly this one will be lots of work as it has had a hard life, lots of worn stuff. I'll keep pixx as I go as to help others that want to do one of thier own machines.





Augers were a bear to get apart, then gearbox was bad. After teardown it was a bad inboard bearing, which also took out the impeller shaft seal.


Ariens 24" 910962 7HP
Ariens 24" 924117 Modified Pro 342cc / 15.50 GT.. Currently Under Construction and testing trials commenced .......
Ariens 32" 924044 Modified Pro 342cc / 16.50 GT
Ariens / Troy Bilt 36" Frankenblower 16HP
~~ And Lastly ~~
Ariens 32" 924??? Double auger & impeller 14HP v-twin BEAST !!!
Plans are being drafted, parts are accumulating in the pile......

Are you sure the autopsy you have done will not sway you from taking it to the happy hunting ground?

Are you going to keep the original engine? I picked up the same blower last year...sans engine....and will restore this winter. I'm trying to decide on the power unit....maybe the 13 hp Predator?

the 13hp predator is an awesome engine for that blower but requires longer belts, belt cover risers and the engine basically sits on the edge of the frame. i got mine as a "fresh off the truck" special on ebay for 160 bucks brand new and it has more power then you will ever need. it also opens up a way for you to build your own custom electrical system like i did with mine, there are pics of her on here somewhere

It's an Ariens....... NEVER !!!

Always worth rebuilding. I'll take a 1980 10 / 32 rebuilt by me over a 2018 machine anyday. I'll have less than a thousand bucks into it and it will be better than you can buy.

Hey Cranman, I bought a 414 ( 12.5 hp ) LCT engine for this project. This will be my second one with this engine, just a few mods to make it work. Last one came out nice, performed flawlessly

Your right of course, I wish I still had the first 2 Toro Snow Pups I bought I should have just had them repaired and I would have four of them in my stable rather than the two pups I have now.
