Ariens belt and throttle control question

Hey guys, I am a bit of lurker around here. I have a 1972 (I believe) Ariens 910008 that has had a bit of a rough winter. Throttle linkage stuck shut, engine seized (but I got it un-seized! whoot!) and the chute ring cracked in half and fell off... rough season. But I purchased someone's half finished project so I will get it the rest of the way... I hope.

Anyways... I am on erplacementparts.com looking for a replacement drive belt and throttle control for the blower and noticed the following part numbers...

Belt:
07204700 - $19.72
07210800 - 25.02

Throttle control:
06908500 - 49.93
06908600 - 47.42

Anyone happen to know what the differences (besides) price on the part numbers above?

Here is a shot of the throttle control:



TIA!

Well in case anyone is following... here is what I found...

This is what the 06908600 throttle control looks like...



So looks like I need the 06908500.

And the belt differences are...

07204700 - 3/8" X 36"
Ariens 72131 72157 07204700 07212600 07213100 Replacement Belt 3 8"X36" | eBay

07210800 - 1/2" X 36.5"
Kevlar Belt for Ariens Snowblower 72108 07210800 Exact Size 1 2" x 36 5" | eBay

So looks like I just need to pop the belt cover off mine and measure.

Just in case anyone has the question in the future...

According to the 10000-series parts manual I have, you want the 72047 belt which in the new numbering scheme is 07204700 (so the first one you listed).

And the 06908500 throttle should be correct.

It's funny, when I got my '71 machine it came with a belt that looked just a little too wide and sat a little high in the pulley. I bet it's that other belt you found.

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

The joys of equipment that is older than me... out dated part numbers. Thanks!

You want me to put this plastic throttle control with the sealed cable on a vintage, classic, antique, heirloom Ariens


Not a bad idea and the 48" sealed cable alone is worth the seven bucks.

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

just use the cable and keep the original handle, or paint the casing white. then letter it with black paint

I am planning on just using the cable, that way I am not looking at the control wonder why it is backwards next winter when I forget.

Thanks again guys.
