Question Wierd Ariens Q

Model 93027 7/24

Trying to help fix the neighbors snow thrower and cannot find the proper parts and service manuals. The neighbor is 90+ and tore it all apart including pins and bushings...... Got it all back together, new belts, friction wheel, bearings....Only thing remaining is forward motion. To go forward I have to put it in reverse and to go in reverse push it forward.

All the parts manuals show 2 seprate pully's off the motor. This unit has only one pully for both vbelts. Any help for the proper manual or suggestions.

Thank you
Merry Christmas
Ken

I know this might seem a bit crazy but it sounds like you have the platter turning the wrong way or possibly the control lever linkage 180 from where it's supposed to be and it's working backwards.

Ken,
there is no model 93027..I assume you probably mean 932027.
If so, here are your manuals:

Owners manual:
http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/032299D.pdf

Parts manual:
http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/PM-32-93.pdf

Service manual:
http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/00040900.pdf

As Joe said, its almost certaintly a friction disk adjustment issue.
we have heard of this same problem before..(putting it reverse makes it go forward, etc.) Its a matter of the controls to the friction disk not being adjusted correctly.

yes 932027

thanks but the docs still show 2 separate pulleys and this has only one pulley with 2 groves for the v-belts.

Is 932027 the correct model number?

Is it possible the owner replaced the engine at some time in the past? The drawing of the engine in the service manual appears to show a 2 shaft engine, with the tractor movement shaft running off the camshaft and the auger etc running off the main driveshaft. If he changed to a one shaft engine, the main drive shaft would be driving the tractor mechanism in reverse. Just wondering. MH

Makes perfect sense.
In that case would a longer belt with a twist in it work ?

I have heard of people doing this. In theory it works. In practice...not sure. I have a twisted belt on my Ariens Gt20 mower deck that has been fine, but it's a really long belt in my setup. Blower belts are much shorter. MH

Just checked and there is not really enough room as the belt would rub against itself.

If the blower came with a twin shaft motor and someone replaced it with a single shaft, the drive will run backwards. The 2d shaft is geared to the crank and runs in the opposite direction as the crank. Put on a single shaft and the gearing would be reversed.

Not an easy thing to fix without alot of time and $$ IMO.

Page 4-15 figure 6 of the service manual looks like it's supposed to have a twin shaft motor from I can see.
