Original barn find 1965? Ariens 10-m6

Hello there!

Picked up my Uncle's original Ariens snowblower last Monday after he tipped me off that he was no longer interested in it. Upon taking delivery, I immediately tried to start her to no avail, but it had compression!

Off to the store where I picked up fresh oil, new plug, carb cleaner, and a gallon of 93 octane gas to try and revive it. After a three hour session and some carb tuning, she fired right up!

Now I found this site due to some research and came across Sscotsman's website that deciphers the different vintage Ariens models. Great site by the way!

My only question for the forum is I am just curious about the year on this beast. If I read correctly I have a 1965 built on the 22nd of October. The model stamp reads H60-75003E and serial is 5295 12062.


Anyways glad to be apart of the forum and looking forward to helping and learning!

One minor problem friends. For some reason , when I run my blower, the screw that controls the fuel pressure vibrates itself out and a steady stream of gas comes pouring out. The precious owner had a nest of thin gauge wire wrapped around said screw. There has to be something wrong with the screw, I'm just wondering if this screw is replaceable or if I should just rig up another homemade patch to keep it from coming out.

put some jb around it to hold it in place or get a new gas tank. the threads are probably worn if its loosening itself. you could also try loctite but the gas might stop it from working right

How about a light spring. Just enough tension to keep it from spinning out.

It isn't for fuel pressure it is just a shut off valve.

To me it almost looks to be threaded into the tank...

Welcome Will,

As Shryp has said it is a fuel shut off valve and looks similar the first pic he posted. All the ones I have seen on Ariens machines have wire mesh filter (looks like a drinking straw) that goes in side the tank. These are easily found for $9 - 14 just about anywhere. Or if you can't find one there is a replaceable rubber o ring inside that can be found at any hardware store for a few pennies. The one I have pictured is slightly different than the one on your machine.

Replace that fuel line while you are at it. It will save you down the road.
