New to me Ariens 8hp 924024
Here's what I discovered so far:
1. Will need a upper fuel tank plate #34154.
2. Carburator linkage- The PO removed the sheet metal shroud (which I have). The carb. is one, I will need help sourcing the choke knob etc. Basically the stuff the PO removed in order to get the shroud off. That's what I'm missing.
3. Linkage- Drive linkage is disconnected at the control panel. I think the pieces and parts are there, just need to sit with a manual and figure it out.
This is my second day of ownership so I'm still figuring the machine out and downloading / printing manuals, parts lists etc.

|Jackmels||It May Not Have the Original Engine on it, so Engine's YOM does not Necessarily Correspond to the Snowblower's YOM. I thought the Square Buckets appeared in 77, but I could be mistaken.|

Great find, I have been using a 924024 for 6 plus years.
Try it with the 8 hp or put a newer 10 hp on it.
Excellent machines, work great,rarely break.
If you need any help , PM me, I have had mine all apart and had lots of fun with it.

I was thinking *all* 1979 Ariens had the aluminum gearbox..
was it only the 24" scoops then?

Thanks for the engine data! That gives us the full story.
That says the engine was assembled at Tecumseh on the 262nd day of a year ending in 7. In this case, we know "year ending in 7" can only be 1977.
The 262nd day of the year is September 19th.
Thats fairly late, but we know from the bucket its not a 1979 model year, so it must be a 1978.
(You were right!)
The engine was made in Setember 1977, shipped to Ariens, who placed it on the snowblower, which then went on sale in October or November 1977, as a 1978 model year snowblower.
So, you have a 1978 model 924024. Nice!

Your engine's birthday is Sept 19,1977. Made on line D @ Tecumseh.
