Even though the local dump implemented a no scavenging policy, sometimes over at the scrap metal pile, I can't help myself. Couple weeks back two coworkers and I spotted this old Ariens and tossed it in. It's from the late 60s or early 70s and from the looks of the paint on the auger, it wasn't used much. First up getting the motor running, no spark. So clean the points. Then clean the carb and on a Tecumseh carb you need a rebuild kit because there's plugs you destroy pulling them out, unless you're lucky and I wasn't. Go online for a kit, 15 bucks, new carb 21 bucks. Yeah I got the new carburetor. Thing runs great, even has electric start! I'll put a new belt on it, just to be sure, oil change and a few odds and ends, then it's going to my oldest daughter's place. She's got a cheap newer one her neighbors gave her now. This old thing will be a big improvement for maybe 50 bucks and some dinking around. They just don't make um like they used to. .
