I have an Ariens S-16H that I have been working on and needs some electrical work that I do not want to get into.  Is there any recommendations on a local repair shop that would do honest work and a reasonable price?  I can go from Sunbury to Berwick, I am near Bloomsburg.  Thanks

That is the universal problem for everything now. That is the problem because most things now are throw away. I fix everything myself because around here you pay $75 an hour for someone who usually knows less and couldn't care less. Cars are $100 per hour. 

 

You could down load the manuals here(3 free per day). Get a wiring kit from a sponsor or go to HF for some of their wiring supplies. We will be here to help you if you have questions.  Good Luck, Rick

Be more than willing to give you a hand, but your a little far. What wiring issues are you having?

Welcome to the forum.  I am over towards the Benton/Jonestown area, like many I fix everything myself so I dont know what local shops are good and which ones arent, sorry.  Post up your problem use pics if necessary and we maybe able to walk you through it.

Welcome to the site! I think if you can find a shop that has been around a while, they would be a good one. Ariens had a fairly simple wiring, if you decide to do it yourself. Back in those years there wasn't too many safety switches to deal with.

Nothing major, just at the end of getting the tractor running.  The Electric clutch is not getting power and sometimes tractor will not start unless you jiggle all the wiring around in the dash.  I am trying Steve's Small Engine repair located outside Bloomsburg, PA.  I am running out of time and would like to get the snowblower on it for winter.  Hopefully they do well, I will post when done
