Ariens Repower

Just a hypothetical question here. If I were to repower my 74' 7hp 24'' Sno Throw with another engine if mine goes south (highly unlikely I'd say!!!) could I go with a bigger engine? If so how big and could the running gear take it? I just got to thinking that if the motor ever went I'd just repower it and add some power to it since I already have a good base! I was thinking a 10hp Tecumseh!

I saw one with an 11HP Honda. I put an 11HP Greyhound on my 77. There have been quite a few people putting newer Briggs on them and I saw one with a newer Tecumseh.

Yeah I just was curious cause if it does ever decide to give up the ghost I think I want a bit more power but even todays Ariens blowers don't seem to have the same amount of steel in them like mine does! That is why I was thinking I'd just repower if the engine ever fails although it probably won't be that easy!!!

How big did Ariens get with the horsepower ratings on their Tecumseh motors? Is 12hp the biggest or did they actually have more?

My Ariens ST1336 LE is a 13 HP Tecumseh with a 36-inch bucket.
