I had to buy a few parts from mfgsupply.com, and so I was already paying for shipping I figure I'd get 8 pins for $.86 each.
But unless you already have a significant order size, ordering just shear pins from online might not be worth it if you have to pay the typical shipping cost.
Been using snowblowers for 25- 30 years and have never broken a shear pin. My time is probably coming. I even wrapped up a floor mat and didn't break one. It's a wonder the gears didn't go south on me.
( I need to get an extra set for my Ariens 5520)
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?
