922024 Ariens

I recently bought an Ariens 922024 at auction. Tecumseh HS40 motor. Overall good shape and it was well cared for by previous owner, needs some work on the carburetor. I noticed that there is no filter or cleaner on the air intake, is this normal for that model or do I need to find one?

Thanks

There should be an air box covering the carb with no air cleaner.

The filters are removed on most snow blowers, because of the chance that they may ice over.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Thanks. That was my assumption but this is my first snow blower so I didn't know for sure.

Tires are a little worn, and might slip when you use it. A good sign, is the amount of grease around the auger axle. This might mean that it has been lubed well in the past. I would grease it, and make sure that the augers are free from axle.

And if you haven't I would recommend a drain and fill of the liquid lubes. I will let others chime in with the specifics of what you need.

Thanks. I plan to lube auger just need a grease gun. Plan to ask for one for birthday since long term forctas has two weeks of warm weather. Checked engine oil and transfer case oil and both look good. Engine oil was light brown. Belts are in good shape which surprised me as I figured if anything they would would worn. I am going to replace tires this weekend.
