1971 ariens 24" 10000 series - pulley size?

Hi guys - I'm out of town, so I can't measure. Sounds like father in law finally blew up the old Tecumseh on my blower. There's a harbor freight and a tractor supply in the town I'm in, so I can get a predator 212 and a pulley. Wondering what size pulley I need to get for this blower? (Other than 3/4 shaft size...)

I figured it would just be easier than trying to pull the old one. Plus I also need the adapter sleeve cause the Tech has a 1" shaft.

You have to be there to physically swap engines so why not just measure?

No, not entirely. I'm just basing what I read on here. People refer to buying a sleeve on eBay to allow the original 1" id pulley to fit the 3/4” of the Predator.

If the 10000 series engine is stock, then I'm pretty sure your shaft is 3/4. the original pulley will come off with PB Blast and a couple of tie rod forks.

Use the original pulley, they are not that hard to come off. Worst case penetrating oil and a puller and maybe a little heat, but they usually arent that hard to get off. Their are two allen bolts you have to loosen/remove. You can rent a puller if necessary at an auto parts store for a deposit which you get back when you return it. Your 1971 Tecumseh engine has a 3/4 shaft, I already put a Predator on two of those machine's. So your all set, all you need is the engine. The one other thing you will have to do is cut the old mounting bolts off the base and drill thru them and add longer bolts, about 1.5 inches long. Everything else falls into place. You can also order an adjustable main jet for the Predator which makes it runs smooth without choke in the cold air. Remove the air filter from the airbox, you wont need it for snow removal. I recommend you get the hemi Predator made by Loncin, its a slightly better engine than the non hemi. The hemi has an aluminum OHV valve cover. You will be able to see it when you look thru the carrry hole in the box at the store to see if its a hemi or a non hemi.
You will have to cut the chute rod get an extra length of it and use two universal joints to divert the chute rod around the OHV and up to the user. While your at it add a taller chute and that snowblower will throw snow as good as any modern snowblower, better.
