before installing a new carb clean out the gas tank, the gunk in there can clog up your new or old carb. it happened to me

ariens from early 70's

so i went on a site that another member had posted,apache.ariens.com and based upon my serila no. machine i have is from 71 or72 so thats cool, these things are built tough,hmm maybe ive been missing the ariens boat all this time. anyway, ill clean out the tank as another member suggested and give the carb a good cleaning,but machine looks ok otherwise,its only a 4hp with 20" but thats ok by me for now.someone painted over all the decals which is a shame,ill hunt around and see if i can get some, saw something online but they wanted over 60 bucks for the ariens dedal?? duh. thanks for the iput here already guys, much appreciated

princess 208cc clone

ahaha, nwcove ,i think i see now what you meant, this motor the clone is only 139 bucks,great deal,its their powerfist model,hmm interesting ,will check and see if any nearby stores have them.might still be worth rebuilding the old ariens 4hp though.at least i could decarbon the cylinder,my unit is a snow thro also,i guess ariens made these little smaller hp machines for lower snowfall areas,pretty smart fellas in WI they are.

If you use starting fluid or just put a little gas in the carb will it pop and run a bit ??
