What a mess 10000 problems

I was looking for an a cheap Ariens 10m dog catcher series, that are becoming harder to find. Then I found this 10000. I usually don't even pick up blowers that look as neglected as this one but said what the heck for 30 bucks. Engine not running, one skid shoe bottom non existent, diff lock rusted frozen, chute crank bent,oil all over the place, electric tape on coil wire, but I need a project. I Figured this this thing is so ugly maybe ill never sell it and be blowerless again. I'm thinking of building a sleeper. It does have a new belt as of last year. These are some of my favorite machines to operate do to the ease of use. As for the sleeper part I want it to look OE and old but perform like a beast. No predator swap or extra tall chute, or Carlise xtrac as that will defeat the look. Im thinking, pulley change, clear coat rusty inner chute, maybe a tec or briggs higher hp of this one is long gone, studded or ag tires. Any ideas chime in and wish me luck.

Maybe some tire chains. That is a classic looking snow blower.

Heh, I've never heard of a sleeper snowblower It'll roll up to the EOD next to a smug (insert brand here), then send a rooster tail of snow 60 feet.

If a Predator is out, then sure, a higher-hp acceptable engine, larger impeller-drive pulley on the engine, impeller kit, slippery chute, and added traction. Maybe cut the front of the bucket back, if you wanted, to expose the augers for better snow chewing.

Admittedly, to me, a sleeper blower isn't a thing. I'd want it to just kick ass, I don't care if you can tell from a glance that it's not stock. The proof is in the performance, not in disguising the performance.

Are you sure the engine is shot? Yeah there's a lot of oil there but it's had ~50 years to accumulate.

If the engine is a decent HP rating (I'd say 6 or higher) you might consider rebuilding it. Just my opinion but it would be cool to keep the period engine appearance. Of course get the carb heater box... you don't want the linkages rusting. Or get a similar engine in better shape from someone here or C'list.

The other stuff sounds pretty easily fixable... those machines are pretty basic and parts are still readily available.

Oh and personally I wouldn't change the engine pulley unless it's got plenty of HP, like 8 or more. Otherwise you're going to risk it stalling in heavy snow. Also on those machines the engine pulley determines both the auger/impeller and wheel speed so it might end up going annoyingly fast.

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

Impeller mod, valve job, new head gasket, refresh the ignition and carb ...that stock engine may surprise you!

I have an H50 on my 910 and it has exceeded my expectations by a mile. ...albeit my expectations were pretty low to begin with

Got alot done in a few hours. She is running. Carb cleaned, valves were slightly out of spec, oil changed, repacked impeller bearing, added impeller kit, clear coat on the chute, painted inner impeller housing some funky orange color I had on hand, added some used shoes I found laying in a pile, cleaned up ignition system, greased augers, and gearbox, got the diff lock working smoothly. Thing starts on half pull. Feels nice and strong too. Put it through an 8 inch dense already blown rain soaked slush pile and the little Tec just sang along. I forgot how much the H series carbs were more of a pain than the HMSK.
