Head Gasket

I've gone to the dealer twice so far for a head gasket for my Ariens 924116 ST 1028 HMSK 100. He says he can't find it because there are three different types and need the exact model number. I wrote down every number on this machine including frame and shroud. I'm I missing some place I should check?

How much engine info did you get? For instance, my Tecumseh OHV is an OHSK100 221608B. Just calling it an OHSK100 (the OHV version of your L-head HMSK100) wouldn't fully describe it. My engine info is on the sheetmetal shrouds on the engine.

jacks small engine has the breakdown of each motor, yet hmsk = h=horizontal, m=medium frame, sk=snowking , without a oh which means it's a overhead valve you should have a flathead snowking which uses a 36451 gasket part number on all 3 listed models using jacks part search

Thanks but it doesn't look like that number lines up I'm assuming the hm listed is suppose to be hmsk I don't know. I punched in 924116 018396 and didn't see anything.

I'm pretty sure I got a parts list & diagram for my engine somewhere (not at home, so I can't check). If you can find that for your engine, you should be able to confirm the head gasket number, even if the dealer is unsure.

You just need the model and spec # from tecumseh engine. If its a Hmsk100 i see 2 different head gaskets listed 34923a or 36451. But with out the spec # its a guess. Always look engine parts up by the engine # the lookup from the snowblower makers can be wrong.

the link i posted above if the op adds the spec number he should be ok. as we know it's not rocket science to find a part number,, op remove the starter button and get the rest of the spec off the engine cover click on the correct one in the link
