Ariens belt confusion

Hello
I have an Ariens 924032 - 008001 ST 724 purchased on Sept 7, 1977.

I went to the http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/PM%2024000.pdf

If you look on page 21, part 9 belt is 72108 for that year blower and model number. see attachment for page 21

In my book(owner's manual 24324C) it says part 9 belt is 72083, same as page 31 of http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/PM%2024000.pdf see attachment for page 31

That said, is my machine part 1977 & 1978 on the blower side??? The small belt for the tractor is okay as 72098. And I do have an old bill for a 72108 as a replacement belt. But I now wonder if it was the wrong belt from the beginning or my book has a print error or apache does?
Any thoughts......Thanks

There's only a 1/2 inch difference between the 2 so just a matter of adjustment at that point.

72083 = 1/2 X 36"
72108 = 1/2 X 36.5"

I'm coming up with the 72108 or 07210800 on the Ariens parts site with that serial number.

If that's the right serial number that should be the very first machine built after some update as 008000 is the cut off.
Might be the other site has the two belts listed because they don't break it down by serial number ??

Thanks 72108 is large belt and 72098 is small belt by all I looked at too. I guess my book did not get corrected.
Any suggestions as to genuine Ariens or aftermarket belt brands? I often remember people saying Gates belt were very good?

Thanks

I use the gates belts and have had no problems. I usually have to order it in (over the phone) and Oreilly will have it same day or next.

I live in Canada, but in a border community to the USA. No O'Reilly there but Nappa and Advanced Auto. Also auto parts dealers here would have them too. We have to determine cost as it is often cheaper to buy many things in Canada, sometimes cheaper before even considering exchange rates on currencies. I will look into it.
Happy New Year

An automotive V-belt will not last on a snowblower. You have to get the W series.

A W belt is made to flex both directions so it can go around tentioners and idlers.

That is a very good reason for you to add your location to your profile so I don't waste a lot of time supplying links in the US that aren't of any use to you.
