Electronic Ignition was introduced on many engines about that time frame. I would need to have model and type numbers from the engine to fully determine that question. However, have spark is still the issue. If the unit has a switch installed on the operator's console, it should be disconnected at the engine so that any safety switches are not masking or causing a problem that is not engine related.

Let's investigate a few basics first.

a) How have you determined that there is no spark?
b) Have you used a type of spark tester?
c) What is the condition of the plug. Brown or dark brown is OK. Black or silver is NOT Ok.
*If you do not have a spark tester,
a) remove the plug, and with it connected to the wire,
b) find a portion of metal around the cylinder that you can ground it on, and then pull the rope.
c) If the plug is black, you may see spark, but you should replace the plug.
*** PLEASE NOTE ; if there is excess fuel in the cylinder or on spark plug, it can catch fire, so be carefull to cover the hole with a heavy rag so that any fuel cannot be exposed to spark plug durning test !!!!

Get back with me on how this issue works out.
thanks, rwvanlue

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.

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.

Craftsman snowblower will not start


Dump out the old gas and put in new.Try a spray of starting fluid into the carb. If it will not fire on the starting fluid there is somthing wrong in the ignition system. Pull out the spark plug and clean it with a wire brush. If it still won't fire the points and condensor need to be replaced.

Ariens snowblower 1979 how to test for spark


The coil needs to be just close enough not to rub. Wrap a piece of hard copper wire on the threads of the plug and ground the other end to the engine. Pull the handle and watch for spark.
