Showing off my 924044 (1032) rebuild

So, I bought a rusty old 924044 for like a hundred bucks, and a 13hp honda for another 200. New piston and rings in the honda, as well as an electric start kit. All the major bearings replaced in the ariens, sanded to bare metal and painted with engine paint for a nice durable finish. Painted the honda to match. Custom electric chute conversion using a power window conversion kit from Amazon. You guys were super helpful with me tracking down some hard to find part numbers. Thanks for the help! Anyone have any questions, or attempting to do something similar I may be able to help.

Nice build. I see you added the handle bar supports as well. That's one of the Ariens week point. Looks like Scott grips as well. Should of got a matching color. I'm waiting to do another Ariens 32 inch build again. Waiting for a reasonable price machine and time. Ill definitely be subscribed as I plan on throwing a decent sized Honda on my next build with a 12 volt start. Great job. Should give me some motivation. Off hand do you have a link to your e start kit and, know how many amps/ watts it puts out. One again Niiccee. Here's a pic of my old one she's long gone now.

This is the kit I used off eBay
https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F331657712014
It worked great, except apparently there are some minor differences in the hole size the starter goes thru on the side of the block. I had to use a dremel to open up the hole probably 1/8 inch to get it to fit.
Oh and the grips are mountain bike grips from Wal-Mart hahah. Couldnt find new originals, and snow was coming so needed something fast. They work!

Beautiful! I just did a similar machine,,, but mine only had a four blade impeller and an 8 hp Tech......I added a newer 10 hp, an impeller kit, tall chute, and chains. I'm getting ready to do a ST 10 32 with a Loncin 414 snow motor and all the goodies......

Thanks! No impeller kit, I bought one, but the metal the impeller is made out of is too hard to drill haha. And the clearance is under .25" so the place that makes them actually says don't bother. They are cool tho, I have one on my craftsman and it works great.

Tall chute is coming, as soon as someone near me is selling one cheap.

I plan on running a smaller impeller pulley, but need to do more research first. Namely, what size I need, and where to buy it. I'm clueless there.

most people that do the mod to spin the impeller a bit faster just use a bigger pulley on the engine . those are easy to find but dont over do it ! there are threads here on what works best with safety in mind.
