40$ Ariens Sno Throw re-hab Part 1
I picked this up to get a good parts pool going. This is my 5th classic Ariens. The best engine I had threw a rod. I managed To finish the season with the back up I had.
The starter, had been robbed , but I had the dead engine to get stuff from. The gas tank is rusty, I found a good one.
The Ariens has been outside for a few yrs. The engine is a Tecumseh HM 70. No spark, so I pulled the fly wheel. The magnets were rusty, so I cleaned them up with sand paper. I slipped the fly wheel back on and shot some carb cleaner into the carb. It ran a few beats. I took the carb off and put it to soak in some old gas. The carb needs a good cleaning. It looks like it was overhauled prior to being laid up. The augur box is in good shape. More later, once I fix the carb.
