1968 Ariens ready for restoration!

I have a 1968? Ariens Tractor & Sno-Thro attachment that has been passed along in our family since it was new. It runs great, but I had to upgrade to an electric start. All original except the skids.

Tractor model 10970, Sno-Thro model 10995, Techumseh 6 Hp model H60-7500-3H. Engine has new magneto and tune-up. Uses no oil.

Would like it to go to someone who will keep it running. See pics attached.

Free for the taking. Located in Kalamazoo, MI

Click Forum on the top bar.
Choose a section. (Repairs and Maintenance or maybe Ariens brand)
Click the New Thread button on the top or bottom of the list of discussions.

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

43128, 260 posts and you don't know how to start a thread of your own ?? Shame on you :-)

N-Gus welcome to the forum. I would post that in the classifieds section too. That is going to run out your door for free. I'm just a bit too far or I'd come get it.

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

I've developed a shoulder spur and can't pull like I used to. Had to go with an electric start.

Your engine has the holes taped in the block and the sheet metal that covers what I would guess a toothed flywheel. Why not just add an electric starter and keep it as a back up machine? It is a part of your family.

OR, get the spur repaired and pull away.

Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)
Toro (51984) Hand Held Blower (For the light stuff)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
