Hi, Guys

I just purchased what I believe is a 1963 Ariens Sno-Thros. I got it off Craigslist for $140 and it seems to run Ok.. Maybe someone can tell me for sure with the following Numbers off the Frame and Engine.

Frame# 10M-L60D

Shoot Body# 7-10M

Engine# H60-750038
#3179-04090

Thanks in Advance=)

old machine are the best machines to me. i have 3 from '64 and one ariens from '72

you may or may not be able to put electric start with extra parts and work. it should be a tecumseh engine. the sheet metal cover the pull start is attached to covers the flywheel. try to look behind/under it to see if your flywheel has a toothed gear running around the outside. if so the electric start would be a direct bolt on. if not you would have to change the flywheel as well.

the older smaller ariens machines were the best of them all. just an opinion. the smaller old ones like a 4 hp 20 inch model i just picked up used the same enormous cast iron gear case as some 32 inch wide model. no wonder they last so long.

good luck with it.

Hi TD,

Thanks for the feedback on the starter option for my machine..I'll check tomorrow for a toothed flywheel. Also it does have as I remember a bump out formed into the sheet metal at the flywheel. I will have to uncover it and take a closer look in the am..

Thanks:)

For all things Ariens, check out Scotsman's website. You'll find most anything you're interested in there.
