Just brought home a twin-stick teardrop 924

This one had been for sale for weeks and was even mentioned on a recent thread here, but no one bought it.

This morning, I saw it listed for even less than the previous ad and I could not resist. I brought it home this afternoon.

Overall, it is presentable and will need a few things like the muffler, scraper bar, skid shoes, for starters.

It's a 8hp with a differential: Model number 924026, serial number starts with 03xxxx = 1978 model.

Good looking machine. What kind of plans do you have in store for her?

Thanks,

Those are nice machines....like you saw, they are getting cheap. I stopped buying them cause of the hard time reselling.

Ideally, I'd like to have the original engine back running (it does have compression), maybe install an electric starter and a taller chute for it....

I remember you posting that steal deal.

Glad that chunk of old iron went to someone who can appreciate it!

Great machine, I buy all the 924 series I can find.
With a differential and electric start,they sell right away.It’ll outlast most new ones.

Good find

Ariens 924116 10 hp 28”
Ariens 924024 8 hp 32” now a 10 hp
Ariens 910008 7 hp 24”

I just sold mine yesterday. I loved the differential and auger engagement stick instead of hand lever.

The first order of business was getting the old muffler off. It was missing one of the 3 mounting bolts and the remaining one was a bear to remove... but I got it off. I also was able to remove the 3rd mounting bolt that is on the cylinder head.

I had a parts machine where I scavenged a much nicer muffler from.

That muffler was TOAST!

Next up, the carburetor cleaning.

I just finished up a similar 924039 last week. The original carb was a complete wreck so I bought one of those adjustable $10 Chinese carbs after an unsuccessful rebuild. I did make a few mods to the replacement carb. First I swapped out the bowl gasket and main jet gasket with new OEM Tecumseh parts. Next, I had to reuse the original choke shaft and butterfly to mate up with the old style ring pull choke hardware. Oddly, the bosses on the new carb were drilled but not tapped for the screws that secure the cover so that was fixed too.

Aside from the carb, all the usual stuff- brand new fuel line with shut off valve and filter, new shoes and scraper bar, new plug, oil change, greased augers, adjust speed control linkages, lithium grease on hex drive rod, etc. At least the friction disc and belts were all good.

My biggest headache was with a failed interlock switch. I decided not to spend $40 for a new switch and simply disabled the interlock. I can reconnect the wiring to the magneto kill if the new owner is willing to engage one of the interlock levers at all times to keep the engine running.

I paid $100, have at least another $50 in parts and hope to sell it for $225 in the fall. It's a good thing I don't count my labor because I'd probably make more working at a local burger joint.

Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.
