AIRENS SNOW BLOWER TWIN SHAFT ENGINE REPLACEMENT?

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys- I'm faced with refurbishing an Ariens 2 stage snow blower for friend- BUT- he would like a "NEW" engine-OHV, etc. I thought Predator- but then I discovered the snow blower has a twin shaft Tecumseh H-35 on it. Anybody ever successfully substituted a single shaft engine on these? Figure 8 the belt on the blower wheel drive- but then you still have the 1/2 speed problem? Thanks for any help- Al

The second shaft is the camshaft extended and is usually used for reverse Any engine will work just would not have reverse without it.

Thanks Howie- the camshaft pulley is used to power all the wheel drive ( forward & backward) the disc drive selects forward or reverse- without using any second shaft- the snow blower would not move. I think I have it figured out- but will have to trial & error it first- Al

Also the second shaft9Camshaft driven) turns at 1/2 speed of the regular crankshaft-without some sort of way to slow down the new engine out put for wheel drive- you would need track shoes to keep up with it!
