I have an Ariens 10995 that I got from a barn estate sale. There was no gas or oil in it. No clue how old it is or how it was treated. The electric start works. Gas is leaking from the carburetor. The spark plug is wet but has spark. If I engage or disengage (forgot what one) the side handle, the front auger spins. The unit just doesn't actually turn on.

How can I replace the carburetor on this? Where would I get one or a part number? I think I'd need new cables and stuff too.

How do I get the motor off so I can just replace it with an entire new motor? Would this just be easier? What would a good replacement be?

Sharing details of the engine (make and model number, at least) would help. You'd also need that info to figure out the carburetor's part number.

The engine may have studs coming up through it from the main frame. There might be nuts holding it down. Or the engine might bolt down into the frame.

You can probably replace the engine completely, but that's a process unto itself. You'd need to check whether the engine has 1 output shaft, or 2. Then you'd need to determine the crankshaft height from the bottom of the engine, and the crankshaft diameter. In an ideal world, you'd want to find an engine that matches those, to minimize modifications/changes that are required. But I wouldn't jump straight to this solution.

How do I find out make and model? I dont see a sticker. I just realized the 10995 isnt it. I have pictures of the engine and carburetor that I took out. Would that help? Edit: looking through my pictures, I think I found the tag. It looks like the engine was made by Ariens. I can get the model number tomorrow. Although this sticker might be the same one that is on the other side of the unit.


The engine appears to have two bolts on each side and then one in the front. Looks like I could just remove those 5 bolts and swap an engine from Harbor Frieght with that same bolt pattern? Or is there more to it?

Post whatever pics you have. My Tecumseh engines have had stampings in the sheetmetal, as I recall, with engine model # and serial #.

The Re-Powering section of the forum may be worth a look:

As I said, yes, there is more to it than just the mounting pattern.

You could just clean that carb and replace nothing. It's a pretty simple process . . .

I have cleaned carburetors simply by first removing the bottom cup that is held by one custom screw. Next I stretched a copper wire that fitted into the main valve (jet) that is usually located right in the center when looking into the carburetor's bottom. Jammed the wire into the valve, twisted a couple of times and then reassembled the bottom. That worked for me without having to remove the carburetor from the machine.

Now of course if the problem is fuel leaking all over the place, well then you might have to remove it. Most likely though the problem could be a stuck float.

There a tools available to clean torch nozzles that will work.

Nah, you can pull the float and replace the seat from the bottom as well with just the bowl off. On older Tecumseh carbs, that 'custom screw' *IS* the main jet, and a single strand from a piece of stranded wire in it's small ports can really help as well.

The snowblower is a 1968 to 1972 Ariens 10,000 series.
Engine is made by Tecumseh. Engine looks original, and is most likely a 7hp model H70.

Hope you took pictures of the carb lever "trapeze". I leave mine in place always. I just "remove the carb only" and leave the lever assembly on the carb studs.

The engine plate is below the carb mounting spot to the right on the flywheel cover. As Scot mentions, the H70 engine data is on that plate, stamped vertically.
