Ariens

Looks like you have one with some good bones there. Some TLC and paint and it will be ready to go. Only thing I noticed is the tires are reversed but that's easy to switch out.

Thanks for sharing.

might have the carb cover.. I have couple but not sure if they have the 2 slots or one. I'd have to go look. Both are off older ariens. Use to have the same belt cover too.. But that may be long gone.

Nice save, keep it out of the scrap yard! Does it run? I would consider a nice period correct h60 to upgrade that baby if not. Bucket and augers don't look too abused...you have a great platform to build on there. You could even swap in a differential axle from a later model, takes some effort but makes moving the beast around a lot easier without the wheel locked together.

thanks for all the helpful replies.

yes I saw those tires backwards, and it must have been an attempt to gain more traction in forward direction with the knobbies grabbing on the outside. does that actually improve traction ? looks like it may.

any spare parts that the machine needs, I'd be interested in, just send me a PM or email or post here, with price needed, and of course I'd pay the shipping regardless.

the engine has a ton of compression so I think it will run. it's actually in pretty good shape, a lot better than the last Gilson and Cub Cadet blowers I picked up. those turned out to be major projects. this one looks a bit easier, hopefully.

I'm going to pull the cover and install the electronic ignition on it right off the reel. yes, I'd be interested in up-gunning it to an L60 or larger original type engine only, if it has the same crank height and output shaft diameter and is a true bolt in, USA made engine of that vintage.

here are a few more pics after I pressure washed it while it was still in the truck bed.

holy cripes it runs !!

I thought WTH give it a shot. removed the plug, cleaned it with engine spray cleaner. put a plug wire end on, Accel copper core from a car set of wires. pulled the cord about 10 times, holy cripes the darned thing started to spark. installed the plug, sprayed it with starting fluid, it rumbled a few times. added some gas, put the choke on full, it started right up and idled. this machine sat for over 30 years somewhere. somebody took the care to drain the gas, and shut off the petcock. there was some rust in the tank but I'll clean that out later. I'm really impressed that it runs, wow !
