1960 Ariens 10M H45-2077

This is my second attempt to show my First Series 10M. I am in the process of restoring it as best I can. It was an early conversion from the original gear drive to the friction drive we all have today. The original shift "dashboard" remains as part of the name panel that spans the bars. MH

Very nice motorhead, would love to grab a 1960 myself somewhere down the road. Good luck with the restoration, I'm sure it will come out great. Can't wait to see pix. Does the engine run? Based on that skid shoe doesn't look like it's had too much use..?

It's amazing to see all those original labels intact. I too would like to add a '60 to my collection one day.

The 4.5 hp Lauson does run. After my rebuild, and before I attached the carburetor, I sprayed some carb cleaner down the plug hole and gave her a pull...she motored right up and sounded nice. The carburetor has been cleaned and reassembled. Had to make a bowl gasket. Haven't found any info on the carburetor, let alone parts, which are "no longer available." Missing links (2) had to be made from wire stock. WestminsterFJR was kind enough to fabricate a copy of his choke link which neither of my 2 Lausons came with. When that arrives, the carb goes on and the engine is done. Just a few more spots to paint, and the engine goes back on the tractor unit. MH

Looking forward to some progress pics. Are you painting the engine? There are some areas I would like to touch up on my engine / tank. Any recommendations on a close match to the off-white (cream) color?

Yes, Ken. I have painted the engine. I removed all the sheet metal when I did the head, valves and carburetor. I added a brass extender for the oil drain, too. My paint choice for the off white was a Lowe's paint/primer all-in-one. It is under the "Valspar" label. "Gloss Lovely Bluff" 85004. I do a lot of painting of outdoor power equipment. I find some spray paints up to the task...others really not. This product goes on smoothly, dries quickly to a nice even gloss. I can put 3 coats on inside of an hour on most days if it is above 50 F. outside. I have used paint indoors, but wife not crazy about that! The orange I use is Chevrolet engine paint...also have used Rustoleum and Magic at times. Problem with the orange is that many of Ariens metal parts are galvanized, and don't take paint that well. I have tried using etching primer but it still isn't very effective. I do see galvanized primer available but only in large quantities. I will post some more pics as soon as I get a chance. Never really spent the time organizing my digital library of photos, and now I have to because locating stuff has become a problem. MH

I like Picasa. It is free from Google and gives a nice layout to preview everything and it can be separated by folder.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Just my 2 cents...another good off white is Krylon indoor/outdoor gloss in "dove white". Goes on great, dries fast and holds up great. I used it on the axles when I did the convert to the diff axle, the nameplate, the fuel outlet, and oil drain too.
