Ariens innards fix

May be good for some to see what's in there. Probably too much DIY for most, me included with lack of tools to go this far. It does show what happens when things are let go too long though.

This guy, mustie, is multi-talented and I really admire his motorized bicycle fabrications, amongst other projects.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I'm always amazed at how willing some people are to just keep right on using something that obviously has serious problems.

Then,when it won't go anymore,they get it fixed and scream bloody murder at how much it cost them.

Luckily,the owner of that blower has someone as nice as Mustie who will try and save them a buck by repairing parts instead just replacing.He's quite a gentleman,I'd like to have him as a neighbor.

Have to agree with you Grunt,
I ended up watching quite a few of his vids and I like his style.
Gotta like any guy with extra auger buckets hanging in the background!

So when the snowblower is in neutral and you engage the clutch, it twists against the rubber drive gear?

This makes me less comfortable that he reused the old plate that didn't have a smooth center after the lathe.
