I bought this with attachments and went to put on the snowblower...

It is missing some parts, and these are obsolete (no longer made or sold by ariens, so I am told so far).

I can make these parts, but some I need the measurements for unless I find someone willing to sell me them.

00351820 Bell Crank (can't find this and would have to make it possibly, but need measurements)

The pivot rod 00350830 I can make easily being I have a original one (two are needed) and the clevis pin 00313810 I also have one, but two are needed.

These are just some of the parts I need "so far". Washers and cotter pins are easy enough to get from the hardware store.

The lift strap 00350840 for the bell crank is surprising still in stock and so is the clevis pin.

I hope that I didn't buy a nightmare and spend all winter trying to machine these parts, due to I don't have that great of a shop.... simple tools.

Please help if you have these parts or know where I can get them.

Thank you,
Jason

Post some pictures!

If you need pictures of anything, how it goes together, or just to see the same setup let me know. I have a YT12 with a 36" Sno-Thro on it.

Thanks guys!

So far haven't done much due to work and other projects. I do have some parts being fabricated for the ariens at the moment and after thanksgiving I will get busy on both of them to be ready for the pending winter.

By the way the parts I am having made from ariens... Ariens gave me the blueprints for those particular parts to give to my fabricator. The company is very nice about this and only ask that you either destroy the blueprints after you have accomplished what you need or just don't share it for mass production. Very cool!

This is for only obsolete parts no longer stocked or made.

The Ariens I plan to do later on a full restore in the next year or two. The Lawn General I plan on just using it to be a snow blower unit so far.

I have looked at other threads and seen the other restore projects.... Very inspired!

Nice looking machines!

Here is mine...

Just got done doing a lot of things to it. Installed a new 12.5 Briggs Intek to replace the Kawasaki that it had, was shot and not worth repairing. Added a rear light and a 27w LED flood worklight on the crank support to get more light over the blower.

I also just got done putting on wheel weights and chains.

I also have Amber LED strobes on it for visibility, i do a lot of early morning and evening snow removal for myself and others.

I wouldn't mind having that rear tiller... I have a 38" deck and 36" blower but thats it so far. If i can find a used tiller around here i will add that to my arsenal. Would be nice to make a little extra cash tilling some gardens in the spring.

Thanks for the welcomes guys!

I also posted some pics, well tried to, said the post needed to be approved or something, so should show up eventually.
