Ariens Point Of No Return

I'm in the process of a rest mod of my 1974 924series 8\32. After the teardown,Im very pleased with the condition of this unit. No major surprises yet. With the help of the forum members Im pretty confident about this rebuild. Here is a list of some of my plans. Please anyone feel free to chime in on any tips,tricks,advice, good vendors, etc. I know off hand i will need a reputable vendor for a piston and ring kit. The engine is also leaking oil from somewhere. So a gasket kit as well. The only vendor I've found so far is on eBay and he seems pricey at 100 for piston and rings.

Long chute mod
Possible plastic inside chute depending on advice
From worm to star drive chute
Relocation of chute control RH side
Adding a stator for amp output
Carlisle Xtrac
Impeller kit
Bearings
Auger gear inspection
Full cosmetic overhaul as well

Thanks and stay tuned guys. Ill need the help and expertise.

I just got my 1973 922008 back together, it was covered in oil when I got it. The leak was from the breather gasket. I replaced it and it doesn't leak now.

Would need the engine numbers to do some looking but I found a piston and rings for an 8hp Tec for $35

It'll be the best thing you ever did, and the machine will run forever afterwards.

what kissfrog said, the piston/ring price is high at $100. you can get it for about $70 shipped. looks like $35 plus $25 shipping. I'd ask the guy to reduce the shipping. those are small, light parts, can ship USPS for about $10

That seller has the shipping to me at $9.00, That would be a 44.00 piston kit.
Sounds reasonable to me.

you probably wont even need the piston, usually you can get away with new rings and a light hone to bring the crosshatching back

BUT . . . you need to search for parts using the engine numbers so you know it will fit.

I didn't get much done yesterday. I spent my free time under the hood of a Chrysler.
Today I was a little better with time management. I the star chute star drive kit I got from Jackmels. I also relocated the chute control handle to a more user friendly spot.

It was alot of.measuring and aligning. I didn't want to drill any unnecessary holes. Also does my chain have to much slack. Is it suppose to be tight or loose fitting. It appears it might have been rubbing the belly pan.
