2013/14 Ariens Platinum 24" Several issues to deal with

I have a few issues with this unit... engine says 2013 but not sure if its a 2014 model. Model 921028

1. At idle the engine runs fine but when you go full throttle it pops. I took the bowl off and everything looked clean. I plan to dig deeper to see if anything else dirty but I have the same problem with a toro. looks all clean but surges.So If I find nothing then what?

2. to pull the auger and gearbox out of the housing does the shaft and impeller need to come with where you need to split the machine in half or can you disconnect the gearbox from the impeller shaft?

3. Under the belt cover I have a problem with the small flat idler puller digging into the metal housing/platform that engine sits on. It also looks like that pulley doesn't like up with the large pulley or wheel below. This belt and pulley system again is closest to the engine and drives the wheels.

any info would be great . Thank you

The machine would likely be considered a 2013 per Ariens's print catalog, it was made for winter 2013/2014. Some would call it a 2014 model. Regarding your question about the auger and gearbox the machine would definitely have to be split. I attached a Youtube vid. I suggest you look at vids from Repair Clinic, Donyboy73 and Alex S, some good vids out there that go over these processes well. Best of luck and keep us posted.
