Hi I recently acquired a older ariens sno-thro it’s roughly a 1980 924050 model. It has the sticker on the heat box that says pull to choke. Does this mean that the choke is behind the cover if so will I have to pull that before every operation to choke it and unchoke? Thanks for the help in advance!

Yes, there is usually a thin wire rod that attaches to the choke lever on the carburetor, and attaches and comes out on the engine pulley cover.


I just replaced a new carburetor on my 924, and used one with a front facing choke lever, with the bowl drain and bowl adjustments, so I just modified the heater box and attached an extended lever to the choke linkage ... I,m going back down to my workshop, I'll snap a picture and post it.

Here is that photo I mentioned about the 924 heater cover choke mod:
So in the meantime I will need take that off to do the choke. In your experience how long should I run the engine until it’s good to turn the choke off? Also mine is extremely loud is that normal or should I get it checked out?

Depending on the weather, the choke will be shut off usually pretty quick ..... the engine will tell you when it starts to falter.

It could just be a lose exhaust, bad gasket, or bad muffler. I don't know what loud is to you? ... I always wear ear muffs.

You can either replace the muffler or wear ear plugs
