Ariens snowblower bearing support & model number help

I have an OLD snowblower that I need to replace the bearing support on and I would like to get some knowledge in order to do it right the first time.I am looking at the right side of the machine (standing at the operators position), it is a triangular shaped ''pot metal''/aluminum piece that bolts to the outside of the case and over the axle. I looked at it (it is cracked with a piece missing out of it) and I mentally can picture taking the tire off,but I think that I would need to pull the hub off but am unsure if the axle can or would pul off to get the support off. Also I do not know what the model number is. I got it VERY used and therefore some of the stickers are gone,how can I determine what model numer it is ? It is a very old machine ( I was told poss. early 60's?) orange body,white Techumseh engine, 4 forward speed one reverse speed,two stage, two levers on the side(one to engage the wheels and one to engage the tines), one lever on the handle(clutch). Thank you in advance for taking the time to possibly help me out..Dave

    Hello and sorry I did not write back. I was able to get the bearing support (triangular) piece from my local "Hector's" (very knowlegable parts guy) along with the copper/brass bearings that he told me I would most likely need.

    I guess what I was trying to get from this post was a more detailed "how-to" on pulling the hubs in order to get to the bearing support. (sorry I was'nt more explicit on what I was after)

    SO to answer your question..yes it was helpful to the degree of my fuzzy explaination of my question. So thank-you for your time in replying....Dave

    I have the same question/ problem. I have a 910995 (7hp Tecumseh). I am trying to replace the triangular bearing support and the bushing on the right side. I don't know how to remove the hub from the bearing so that I can slide the new bushing and bearing support onto the shaft. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: Ariens snowblower ST724 leaks gas from the carbourater

The little metal peice with the wire ataches to the float at the hinge part of the float, if you use yahoo type in tecumseh carburetor diagram then click on Parts and Diagrams and the web address is it will show you a breakdown of a carb and how it goes together. It may not bee your exact carb but they are all pretty much the same. It also sounds like you may need to rebuild your carb. If you get it back together and it still leaks, I suggest you take it to a small engine repair shop and have them rebuild it for you only cause you need a special tool for the seat and the float will have to be set.

SOURCE: PTO does not engage

if your belt was tight when you finished installing it and all the pulleys that it went around are free turning by hand and lining up reasonably well you should be ok.
to the clutch
are you good with a volt meter 12volts dc?

Find your connector close to the clutch
unhook it from the clutch
take your volt meter and engage your red knob (Have the key on and parking brake applied)check your voltage to the connector
Do you have 12volts dc?if so your clutch should work if not you need to trace the wire back to the red knob
check all of your fuses check all of your safety switches.

Or have a 12 volt source (a battery )and hook it briefly to the connector you found directly to the clutch connector pos. and neg. from your battery you should hear an audible CLICK if so your clutch is good if not you are losing 12 volts back toward the red knob
this is the best way to check the clutch while it is still on the machine.
if its the bad clutch get your wallet out they are expensive.
to remove it unlosen center bolt on the crankshaft
remove or move belt guards out of the way and whole assembly should slide right off, note any shims and spacers that may come down with it and their locations
put back the same way it came off and tighten center bolt to 55 ft.lbs.

I have an Ariens ST724 7hp snowblower (model:924075 serial 005629) that needs to have the starter cup, recoil, and the 4 bolts that secure the recoil replaced. The problem is all of these parts are NO

In order to order engine you must look-up the engine itself. If this blower still has the original engine then it is a

Auger replacement

Here is a manual for your snowblower. Yes, It's the same. . Go to page 30, it a parts diagram of the blower and housing.

You will need to remove the pulley #66 from the back of the unit, the bearing retainer #1, and the auger bearing bolts #18. The whole unit will then slide out of the housing. You can then remove the augers and then take the worm gear apart. That will get you to the auger shaft.

I have an old snowblower (ca. 1980's?) that runs like a top - the only problem is that the auger drive chain pops off the rear (smaller) sprocket in heavy snow, no matter how tightly (or loosely)

First remove the chain--- lay it flat on the floor --streched lengthwaze . grab either end and pull out and push back--- if chains length moves more than a quarter of a inch ---replace the chain. Next inspect the sprokets, if they are worn inward on the side they will let the chain drop on too far making the chain jump and rattel as it runs and this will throw the chain. Next inspect allignment of each spoket to the next sprokets with belt drive the belt will flex and this is not critical with chain drive this will load one side of each spoket causing the chain to jump off.

Cub Cadet Problems

Sorry it has taken so long to reply, busy time of year. It is very possible the wheel bearings are going bad, but you should notice it at all times. Some lawn and garden tractor front wheels are that way for steering. The John Deere lawn tractors are toed in for example. Wouldn't hurt to check the wheel bearings as well as the spindle bearings. They should all be greasable, and if the issue is better after greasing, you have found your problem. If not, let me know and I will see what else I can come up with, Daniel.

Cant start my old tecumseh snowblower there's a strap to pull. I tried to take the spark plug out, keep it close to the minus on the engine, but saw no ignition

This is an old trick which usually works.Pull the plug, pour a "Little" gas into the spark plug hole. Replace the spark plug. Pull a couple of times. If you have spark, the engine will fire. If it does, repeat this process several times. In doing so, the engine creates a vacuum, pulling the gas from the tank. If this solves the problem you have a blockage somewhere. Hope this helps. : )
