The HF engine on the other hand has a throttle, but no primer and parts aren't enclosed quite as well to keep snow out.

* I'm using the word "throttle" here to mean speed-adjustment control, not the throttle butterfly in the carb. The LCT engine unmodified runs at a constant governed speed which I think is 3600 RPM.

The listing definitely says the LCT has a manual throttle and I already emailed Small Engine Suppliers and got this photo back after they got a hold of the warehouse. I think that's what a ariens has for a "throttle" and while I read it isn't the best, it's better than a 10F start to wide open.


Personally I picked up the 1150 B&S for my old 1980 22" Tru-Test snowblower. And at the 7,200 feet of elevation it's still kind of weak in stock form. I used some parts from an adjustable main jet I picked up off ebay to make the carb main jet adjustable (stupid epa crap, I like my carbs adjustable!!) and haven't ran it since then but it should bring back a fraction of a HP I'm losing at this altitude. That's why I was looking at the LCT engine except I'd have to redesign the custom metal cover I made over the belts as the LCT is roughly 5" to crank center vs the B&S at 4". And if it was too much then I'd use it for my pressure washer as that 6.5 hp honda struggles up here.

I bought a new friction wheel for it and I plan on servicing the rear diff this coming summer.



Looks like your diff should have a grease fitting already! So pull the bottom off and get in there and grease it up before the season gets going too far and you can pull it apart in the summer.


Adding a grease fitting to my 1032D was quite a job so I'm jealous!

Interesting!

They must be selling a different model now from when I bought mine. Here's a photo of mine... the red thing sticking out above the fuel-shutoff knob is my homemade throttle. It looks lousy but works well!

It's just a different carb assembly and another sticker around it. Here's a video from 2016,
that should start about where you can see the throttle in action. I looked at different carbs and you'd have to get the right one and then get the knob assembly for the throttle/choke and it should be the same.



I do like your solution though! Sometimes it's more fun to do things your own way!!

Search amazon for this

You can see the black part on the choke shaft, that's the throttle.

narly,
Have you had a chance to use the new setup yet? Just curious, I threw a rod on my 1984 JD 1032 yesterday after blowing for 7 hrs on a fresh 22 of snow and was looking to get the same engine to replace the original engine. Got a lot of good use out of the snow king though!

Thoughts,


Thanks

I have not, unfortunately. It's still at my fathers house, and he hasn't been up at my place to drop it off. I don't have a truck to haul it to my house, so I'm at the mercy of him driving up for our family Christmas. He DID try it out with some snow though, and video called me when he did it. He said that it has plenty of power. I was down there last weekend and started it up myself and it runs butter smooth. The friction wheel was chewed up, so we replaced that - now it works like new. Here are a few photos that I took when I was there. He ran into no hiccups, just needing to drill new holes for mounting.

Just a couple quick observation, FWIW:

You should put in the remaining wheel stud bolts.

The cutting edge is worn way crooked, so you may want to replace that, as well as check your tire pressure and axle bearings/bushings, as well as the bucket attachment alignment.

Also the skid shoes look to be needing replacement. ( I have switched mine over to poly, as well as the poly wheel version as my metal wear out, as they work real nice, (JMHO)

Also, many years ago I tried chains on a turf tire like you have there, and immediately took them off as they bounced and shook the machine waayyy to much for my liking. I have nothing but XTrac or SnowHogs on my machines, which work just great.

That is a nice beefy machine you have there.

Thank you!!

- I believe that only three lug nuts go on each wheel, but I'll need to look at it better when it get it to confirm.

- I just noticed too that the cutting edge has uneven wear, I'll look everything over. Thanks!

- Yeah, the shoes just need to be adjusted down.

- My goal is to get snow tires for it and install them in the spring (and refinish the rusty wheels).

Thanks narly!

I pulled the trigger on the same engine today, should get next week.

Nice unit there, my setup is pretty much identical to yours, I also have the chains and like them, but to each there own. My friction wheel is also about ready for replacement, that’ll be next.

Thanks for posting the pics! There tough old units for sure!

We got kind of smacked over Thanksgiving holiday, 22” while I was out of state, ran this too hard and pow, it just rattles in the engine now.
Looking forward to getting the Briggs on there for the next storm...
