SOURCE: I need help with older Ward's snow blower

have you checked to see if you have spark to the plug? If not you may have sheared the key between the flywheel and crankshaft. It is made of aluminum and could have sheared for this reason. This happened to me.

Hi, The blower spins at full speed? If it does the belt, pulley, and shaft are good. Look at the shaft from the fan to the gear box while it's running and that shaft should be turning at the speed of the fan.
If the blower spins at full speed and the auger doesn't the most likely problem is the worm gear transmission from the blower shaft to the auger shaft.
A good way to visually inspect this is: With the machine turned off and the spark plug wire unhooked go to the front and try to rotate the auger by hand. If the gear box is good you will only be able to move the auger less than an inch. If the box is bad you will be able to move the auger a lot farther. While you are there recheck your shear pins.
You can also remove the blower drive belt and have someone turn the pulley by hand while you watch the auger. Put resistance on the auger with your gloved hand. If the box is good the auger will move smoothly in you hand. If it is bad, it will ****, move roughly, or stop.
While the other person is turning the pulley and you have some resistance on the auger look closely at the shaft running from the gearbox back to the blower. On some models there is a connecting sleeve and the roll pin that connects the sleeve to the shaft and gearbox will break.
If the gearbox is bad, it will have to be replaced as a complete unit.

Parts not available for Ariens ST724 7hp snow blower?


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.

Banging sound in drivetrain


Sounds like something is broken. Even a shear pin in the drive wheels would do it. Get it repaired before more damage is done.Also check drive belts.

Auger does not engage on Ariens Model 924121 sno- Thro


first check shear pins in the auger ( try to turn big auger by hand, engine off)
then if they are good then try to turn impeller by hand, engine off
youll need to turn it a few times before the larger ones turn, but thats what you want
if they dont turn then you have sheared the gear box gears
be sure belts are good tooo

Try removing the belt and turning it by hand. If that doesn't work, you may have blown something into bits inside of the gear case.

If the belts are intact, then NAPA or a hardware store should be able to replace them. If they are shredded, then you should order them from Ariens. Good luck!

I have a ariens 24 "sno tech it will not throw


The most common cause of this is the drive belt is worn. If you remove the cover (usually plastic) in the middle of the snow thrower and look at the belt closest to the blower assembly. This is the blower drive belt. (Your operators manual will show you the location and how to remove the cover if you are unfamiliar with your snow blower)
With the engine not running, have someone depress the drive lever and check the belt. You should only be able to depress the long side 1/2 inch or less. More than that the belt has stretched and needs to be replaced. On some older blowers you can adjust the tension pulley, but most made in the last 15 years, you can't.
The belt may be frayed on the edges or glazed causing it to slip (it is shiny on the sides of the belt)
You can get parts (the new belt) through your local Ariens dealer or jackssmallengines.com

Looks to me like your second stage is not working. If the auger is turning fine, look and see if the secondary thrower is turning. Probably a shear bold on one or the other is broken. Easy fix, but do not put your hands in there when the machine is running!
