ariens gear set wanted
i have an ariens 10000 series with stripped auger gear set. it is a 7hp with a jam clutch and 24 inch gearbox, the model number is worn off so i dont have a model number for you guys. if anybody has an auger gear set they would be willing to sell/give away, please contact me at evanm[email protected]. any help is greatly appreciated
i got a chance to tear her down today, here are some pics, to make matters worse, when the augers presumably hit something, the power was presumably transferred to the engine causing it to throw a rod.
both failures were probably assisted by the thin black gasoline contaminated oil in the crankcase and some idiot filling the gearbox with grease
i think the guy hit a brick or something and the force from hitting it ruined the gearbox, and the force from the impact was transferred to the engine and broke the rod, but thats just a theory. there was a lot of carbon buildup in the head of the poor little h70 and it fell into the cylinder and caused scoring, so even though the block had no holes in it it would require an oversize bore and rings, carburetor replacement, and a bunch of other stuff i dont want to deal with. the left side auger had a bolt in it and the right had a shear pin so thats probably what caused the failure. as you can see there is absolutely no usable portions of either gears left, if you know somebody who can source the two i would appreciate it
