Ariens 924073 1032

Hello i have an older mid 1980s ariens 924073 with a 32 inch bucket.It also has 6 impeller blades. I see alot of machines out there with 3 or 4 impeller blades. I havent tried the snowblower yet in the snow but i think it should be nice to throw snow. Any ideas on how a 6 blade impeller is???

924073

Hi Tom! i have been waiting for the snow to try her out!! I bought new bearing for the impeller,wheel bearings ,both belts ,made a cover for the Carb so it doesn't ice up from what i also read. Installed new drive wheel for the transmition and i put on new chains on the tires. I will update my photo maybe tomorrow with the carb cover and new chains on. I had to torch the bolts to free them up just to get one of the wheels off but i got it!!
The engine does run good but i still want to replace it in the future....maybe a Briggs vtwin 16Hp !! some of the briggs V twins have a built in fuel tank...just have to keep my eyes open for one!! maybe next years project!
Hope it snows soon!! what are you using this season for blowing snow??.....john

same machine as last year, a 1960s moto mower but i gave it a semi restoration like you did yours. all new chains (there are 5) all new bearings, clean and paint. double stacked auger in front and a paddle style impeller spinning the same direction as the augers.

have a second identical machine that wears its old worn paint and scars well.

both have cast iron kohler engines. both are 24 inch wide by 24 inch high intake.


but i am itching to try a blower i overhauled for my parents house in commack. a 10 hp 32 inch bolens. went through it and now its just waiting. if it performs well i will tear it down and restore that one as well.

Nice looking machines

Couple of good looking machines there. Built when they had some guts and material to them.

I'm working on #8 myself right now, it's a 10 HP 32" 3 stage:


Here's a few but not all that go along with that one that I've rebuilt this last year so far:


These are machines (both yours and mine) that should outlive all of us given normal maintenance so well done on some great machines.

PS - one thing I've always wondered is where all the engine heater boxes and slidpans disappear to? I've had machines that were missing both of them, makes no sense.

In my opinion... Its because thats the first part someone takes off when it has a problem, and either they get it running and put it back together or they give up and it sits, and the parts get separated...

Seems like that's how i always find them to... Not running, torn apart, can't find where they laid those parts, etc..
