All you can do is keep looking until you find the leak is coming out from somewhere.
have you looked at all screw on tops make sure the seals are ok on them.

Have a gravel driveway bought a Ariens 24 Snow Thro adjusted skid shoes to lift machine, is the scraper blade also adjustable, it is throwing a lot of rocks?

Yes, they are all adjustable. Loosen the hardware, Find something to use as a shim... a few paint can stirrers.. put them under the Scraper to lift it about 3/8" then tighten the hardware. See how that helps the stone throwing. Gravel driveways are tough for Blowers and Plows...It's best to actually leave snow on the driveway to pack down and form a Base. Then the next snow will be stone free.

Tecumseh 8hp snow blower. Hi started the snowblower this year for the first time with no problems. The oil was changed and the level was fine. I cleared the driveway and after about an hour turned it

not sure i understand you correctly but if it turns over to a spot and stops. it is on the compression stroke. that means the valves are out of adjustment. reset the valve clearances and it should be as good as new. or take the spark plug out and see if when you try to start it it shoots out gas out the exhaust that means you have a bad needle or seat in the carburetor. it will need to have a kit put in it. it is easy to do and cheap.
