I have an older Ariens S22 that I was given a few years back. When it was given to me it ran, but it wasn't perfect. The two biggest issues were a fuel leak and a chute that wouldn't rotate. At the time I only had a small walk way to clear, so I put it in storage and figured I'd fix it later on. Having recently moved further north in New Hampshire it was clear that the little Ariens wasn't going to help me, so I snagged a deal on a working Honda. But I'd like to still fix it so I can give it to a buddy who needs a snowblower. So I changed the oil, put in a new plug and replaced the old fuel line that was cracked. The belt looks to be ok and seems to have tension. I assumed that the fuel line was where the leak was coming from, but it looks that it's leaking from the carb. I plan on diving into the carb threads shortly, but welcome any suggestions. What I can't determine is how the chute mechanism should work. According to Ariens there should be a spring and a metal bearing that rolls along a metal plate with indents for the bearing. This is how my machine is currently set up. But I noticed the diagram on ereplacement parts for the S22 shows that the machine uses a spring with a rivet. The ball bearing has been giving me some hassles when I try to get it line up, so I wanted to know if any one had any experience with the rivet they suggested, or any other suggestions and insights on these types of chutes? You guys have been a huge help in getting my Honda in near perfect running condition, so I welcome any advice. Thanks in advance.
