Inherited 4HP Ariens Snowblower

My Father passed a few years back and I inherited his old snowblower. It will need a tune up at minuimum before it will start. I ordered a new Ariens Deluxe which should be delivered soon.

I am thinking that this 1976-77 model 922024 4HP will be a good backup so I am having a trained tech look at it to determine whether or not it is worth bringing it back to life.

Here's some pics of the old girl.

That looks to be in great condition, well worth the price to get it running.

Sorry to hear about your dad. My dad is 81 and some day his '67 10m5 will be mine.. i hope that day never comes.
