Drive & Auger Clutch Levers

Hi there,

I have an Ariens ST9-24 (Model 924093). The lever mechanism is supposed to work as described here:

Drive Clutch Lever And Auger Clutch Lever - Honda Power Equipment HS1132 Owner's Manual [Page 17]

I noticed last year that when both levers are squeezed, the drive clutch lever does NOT lock the augerclutch lever down as it's supposed to. I have to keep the drive clutch engaged at all times in order to keep the snowblower moving. Does anyone know why this is happening? Thanks.

You are going to have to look at the interlock system and see what isn't catching. Something might need adjusted or something might be worn out or broke. I recently got an 80s machine and one of the pins holding the interlock to the dash was broken. I drilled it out and replaced it with a bolt.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

the interlock system figures in a spring, latch and trip plate look under the dash to see if it is still all there.
