bye bye tec 8hp (Part Deux with pictures)

I finally finished my Ariens ST824 re-power. I wanted to add pictures to my other thread, but could not figure out a way of doing that. So here goes.

Everything went pretty much easy as pie, a few little things had to be changed but the major parts like pulleys, chute rotation control and holes in the tractor part were in the right spots. Very happy with the end results of the power fist 7hp 208cc engine from Princess Auto. Enough of the little chit-chat and here are the pictures.

I included a picture of the machine before swap. Next step... ilumination.

Nice job!

The Princess Auto clone seems to be a better alternative for snow use than the Predator....but here in the US I dont think Ive ever seen a "snow use" clone (at least not as readily avail. as HF)

Even has provision to hook up lights and handwarmers. AC 20w/12v. DC20w/12v if I am understanding correctly.

In the US you check for getting these exact same engines by checking if you know a Ducar generator dealer as he should be able to order some,
For winter engines Ducar have the 7hp, 10hp 302cc, 14hp 420cc and for summer engines like the Predator they have a many more even two cylinders.
If you can't reach a Ducar dealer I may have a link where you could order directly from China. PM me if you need so I can put the link here.

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

Hey good install and professional looking, now you're giving me the bug to install a 10hp or 14hp on mine. (1130dle Ariens)

Are you having issues with handlebar flex? Only the second time I have seen someone add those side supports.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Was like that when i bought it. Left them there since i noticed a welded repair on the handle bars. Makes for a very strong frame.

Nice work! That's the better version of the ST824, in my opinion. Taller chute and better tires than the earlier ones. The earlier ones have different decal on the front side of the dashboard.
