Ariens 10000 series Friction ...

I have seen a few posts in the past with people not sure of how to attack the changing of a 10000 Ariens Friction Disc.

I have just done one on a 10M6, and figure I would try to explain it, along with a few pics. It really is not that difficult if the lower rod is not rust welded in its casing.

* Put it in service position and take off belly pan, and remove right side tire.
* Remove the linkage cotter pins from the right side of the Friction Carriage Assembly rods, and then unbolt the side linkage bracket from the main case.
* Remove the center cotter pin from the lower Friction Carriage Assembly tube, and slide out the rod from the right side. (this may be rust welded in its casing, in which case you may have to use Trizol and heat, with some light tapping on the outer casing to free it, while also turning it from the outer end protruding from the casing)
* Remove the 2 upper rod clip pins, and slide out the upper rod, allowing the spring on the front of the housing from being released, as well as sliding the sprocket off the chain.
* Assembly is now out of machine, now spin off right friction spline slide shaft nut, loosen the other (left) side (4) 3/8" nuts from the bearing holder, and slide splined shaft to the left, thus freeing the actual disc unit.
* Now on some , for some reason, it is easier to notch slightly the old Friction Disc, as well as the new one, to get them off and on the Friction spindle easily. (Look at attached photos) Some discs will slide right over its slide assembly bracket without any notching.

Assemble in reverse order, making sure the Friction Disc Carriage Assembly has the hook clip for the neutral position lock tab in the upper position.
