Let me explain how I found this so you can find things
1) google for "ax 369cc engine manual"
2) scan down the hits hoping to find the manual itself and watch out for links back here to this forum... go to page #2 if necessary
one of the hits looks like this...
www.snowblowerforum.com/forum/general.../87785-ariens-platinum-24-sho.htmlFeb 13, 2016 - 10 posts - 6 authors I have experience with two Ariens AX engines and they are reliable ... LCT's service manual states that the 369cc engine puts out 10hp (plenty ...
3) You can see he will be a good person to PM or maybe the link will be in his post... let's go see.....Chase the link back to this forum
4) Speed scan the thread visually looking for the post that google found
6) If you don't have a serial number for the search ... PM the member and see if he'll help Cardo111
Otherwise just hope that the right people are reading and responding.
Wouldn't it be great if there was a searchable thread containing lots of manuals
I try to post some when I find them but I'm not religious about doing that
If you don't get an answer any time soon that ping Cardo111
Finally, when you find it... how about posting onto your own thread for the next person
It's great if every question has a clear answer to end the thread.
I didn't give you the manual but you at least know how to get it if all else fails.
It bugs me that these companies require you to have a model and serial just to find something
Not all do, but many do.
If you have not bought it yet.. how can you do that?
They should just let you browse if you want to shouldn't they?
Thanks, Stuart. I actually did locate that site prior to my post but since I don?t have the machine just yet, I don?t have a serial number to plug in. I did PM Cardo in hopes that he has a PDF copy that can be sent to me. I?ve heard very good things about the LCT?s, which is very encouraging. I?m also planning on using the manual more as prep tool than a research document since I?m 99.999% sure it?s what I?ll be purchasing in November. I want to know as much as possible before it gets here.
I was able to get the owners manual for the entire machine from their site but for the engine itself, you have to have a serial number. And because I haven’t actually made a purchase yet, I don’t have one. Unless I missed something, which is entirely possible.
If you use google docs or some other web storage... you should be able to put it there, make it public and insert a link here pointing to it
If that's gibberish to you... PM me and you can email it to me and I'll do it for you.
Need to put it away for the 'summer' but service manual PDF does not give a general maintenance checklist.
Is there a list/link somewhere you can point me to?
-Oil change (of course)
-Non-ethanol fuel stabilized (I add Stabil whenever I fill up the gas can at the pump)
-Remove wheels apply...
I just picked up an Ariens 932006 Sno-Thro that had been sitting at the curb for a couple of days. Hopefully I can get it into operational condition again.
It's definitely rusty and crusty. The discharge chute and throttle cable are rusted in place, for example. However, the engine is free...
Does anyone have the instructions for removing the right hand track wheel in order to access the two grease fittings in there? My book says refer to the service manual. I didn't get one of those
First time Ariens owner. Just did a post season maintenance interval on an Ariens Platinum SHO 24. I had a lot of difficulty reinstalling the bottom cover. Specifically, the 4 hex bolts that screw into the side clamp nuts were a bear to get in. Is there some simple trick I am missing?
