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.

Need a carburetor for old Ariens snowblower. Number on carb is 510121 but can't find anywhere?????

Carb was probably bought in from a specialist manufacturer by the engine maker along with the ignition equipment and the maker of the snow blower in turn would have likely bought in the engines.
Few manufacturers bother making stuff for themselves when others can do it better and cheaper.

If you want it to be authentic I suggest you get in touch with Ariens with details and pictures of your snowblower and ask them if they have anyone there with a long white beard and a memory to match who could tell you where the carbs were sourced. It will be a matter of playing detective and following a line of clues.

If you aren't bothered about authenticity there are a number of generic replacement carbs that could be made to fit and jetted to suit and if it is a governed engine the governor could probably be made to fit too.

How do I replace the carburetor on a 1995-98 Ariens snowblower? Very hard to get to!

No you do not need to remove the engine. How hard it is depends on which engine you have. First is it a briggs or Tecumseh. Then tell me which model, number and I will let you know.

As far as the bolts you should be able to match them at a small engine and lawnmower repair shop and as well if you take the old recoil they might be able to get you what you need.
