Picked up this ariens off someone for $20 for my next project. I'm a little confused on the numbering. Would you say this machine is a 1967?
How do you get 1970? Does the 1st digit in the serial represent the year? I know for a fact the engine is a 1969. Must be a 70' Areins with a 69 7HP tecumseh engine correct? I know for a fact the engine was built Tuesday July 8th, 1969.Based on the serial # this is a 1970 model.
Good luck with the restoration, would love to see some pics as you go through the process.
