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.
I have Obsolete Tecumseh and Ariens Parts Available. PM if Interested.

its always possible, but in this case I see no reason to suspect its not the original engine. The engine paint, condition, hp/size, model and serial number are all a perfect match to the snowblower model. Im totally convinced its the original engine.

Square buckets started in '79.

I use the same machine as a backup...like Jack I put a 10 hp and tall chute and impeller kit.....They are really nice machines.

Ian Ariens 924 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.

sscotsman Thanks for the engine data! That gives us the full story.
7262D
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!
