Two output shafts! Now What?

Welcome from Massachusetts.
1996 Ariens ST724. Model 932027

Tecumseth motor gave up with big bang. Feels like no compression. No holes in case.

Started taking the motor off to order a new motor and found two output shafts. I looks like this blower is married to this engine!

What are my options. Is their a replacement engine?

If your cam and cover are still good, transfer them over to a different HSK70

Two-shaft engines are somewhat less common than single-shaft ones but they're not rare by any means... they're used on a lot of snowblowers.

I'd do some looking around C'list to see if you can find another engine like it. Or depending on how mechanically inclined you are, you could buy a single-shaft 7HP Tecumseh and swap the necessary parts from the old motor to the new one (I think the camshaft and end cover would do it).

Another option: just buy an older working snowblower off C'list. There are a lot of perfectly good ones on there for the same or lower price as a brand-new engine.

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

If you add a location to your profile it will pop up with your posts and maybe somebody in your area might see a twin shaft on Craigslist and let you know.
Good reason to add location to profile.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

If there are no holes in the case, why not open it up and see if the crank is still ok. If so replace the probably broken rod and your back in business.
