5 hp should have 20 oz.
When checking,
1) fill the oil to top of threads (if the inspection cap is threaded into the side of the block close to the bottom)
2) if it has a dipstick, wipe the stick as you remove it, re-insert *do not screw it down, just allow it to set on top of dipstick housing.

*note: you cannot overfill unit on an inspection cap
*** you CAN overfill on a dipstick. Any more than 22-24 oz, the engine will blow it out the valve cover breather hole.

First I would take out the spark plug then try tugging on the rope. If no success take a ratchet and a deep well socket that fits the nut on the flywheel tighten and loosen the nut with out restricting the flywheel does the engine turn over? Does it move then stop after you loosen the nut? If it does then check the oil. If it is low or none in there then the motor froze up and needs replacement. If this was no help check in the shoot for obstructions like a newspaper stuck in the auger or the thrower.

I didn't realize that my Ariens 522 2 cycle snowblower is a oil/gas mix. I filled my tank full with just gas and no oil. Can i just add in oil and manually mix it?


Yes, you can. I thought it was a chain saw, but you can shake a snowblower :>) Put the oil in stir vigorously with a spoon.

I changed the category.

On a 1973 Ariens Snowblower with a 7hp Tecumseh motor what is the proper way to check oil level? Do you screw the dip stick all the way in or let it sit on top of the oil fill hole?


To check the oil you screw the dip stick as far as it will go. Before you start take the stick out and wipe it off then insert and screw it in to the bottom then take it out and check it.

Just a matter of the output shaft. If the height of the engine is slightly different, that can be adjusted by buying different sized belts But the Length and size of the Shaft that the Belt Pulley will be put on is the critical item
