Greetings all..this weekend threw this girl together from parts scattered around. A 1973 chassis and bucket, 1974 handlebars, 15-5-6
snowhogs from a 932 series machine, and a GX140 Honda from who knows where.....new scraper, skids ,belt, and impeller kit.....come on snow! Check out how nice the taller Sno-Hogs go on the 10000 series machines....I've got a couple of twinsticks that I think would benefit from them as well.

Yes...the swap with the early Ariens and the Honda/Predator is seamless...no more then 15 minutes tops. In this case, because the motor being replaced was an 8 hp....I had to add new bolts/studs to the other bolt pattern...but already drilled on the tractor. My favorite swap is to the 924 series, but the 73 and 74 Ariens 910018 and 910019 swaps are really cool as well.

Hey CC...I don't think I'd bother with swapping a Briggs onto the 10000 platform, but I don't see why it couldn't be done. The 36 and 32 934 series Ariens were drilled for the Briggs bolt pattern as some of them came with Briggs stock. I've got an ST 1136 with the Briggs I've been meaning to go through, but haven't gotten the gumption up for it yet. The Brigg's I've had seem to have bigger horses then their Tecumseh counterparts....may be a torque thing or maybe imagination.

I only would if I had a perfectly good running Briggs and Stratton engine lying around doing nothing. The new OHV engines run great and I have a mini bike with a Predator 212cc engine and I had to add some steel to the front of the frame down low on the frame and over the handlebars because it was an wheelie machine. The new OHV Engines can be bought for a decent price and performance is usually better than a tired old flathead. Have you seen any new flathead engines anymore? OHV engines are a technological improvement and they simply breath better because the exhaust and intake gasses can go directly into the head rather than being forced to make a 90 degree turn back into the block.
