WHEELS, AXLE AND REDUCTION DRIVE
WHEELS AND AXLE
The wheels are held onto the axle with locking pins. To remove a wheel pull the locking pin and the wheel will slide
off.
To remove the axle:
1. Place the unit in upright service position.
20.Remove the bottom plate.
21.Remove both wheels.
22.Drive out roll pin.
23.The axle will slide out either side.
NOTE: Make a record of the positions for the washers and flanges for reassembly.
To install the axle:
1. Slide the axle into the main frame from either direction.
24.Place bearings, washers, and spur gear into the axle in correct order.
NOTE: The spur gear can go on in either way. The nylon flanges must enter into the bushings from the inside out.
25.Insert the woodruff key into the axle and slide the spur gear into position.
26.Move washers into position and drive the roll pins into the axle
27.Replace wheels.
SPROCKET AND CHAIN
A friction wheel is driven and provides power to the axle shaft. Power is transferred using a chain to a sprocket
assembly. To replace the drive chain remove both shafts.
To remove pinion shaft:
1. Place unit in up right service position.
28.Remove wheels and bottom plate.
29.Drive out the two roll pins. These two pins are different in diameter. Make note of which pin is in each hole.
30.Slide the shaft out towards the end with the grease fitting.
NOTE: The components on the pinion shaft can all be removed. The hex shaft must be removed (at least partially)
to remove the roller chain.
To remove the hex shaft:
(see Friction Disc Replacement on page 30).
To install pinion shaft:
1. Slide pinion shaft into the main body with the roll pin hole closest to the end away from the pinion.
31.Put the washer, flange, and pinion over the shaft. The shaft should be through the center of the chain.
32.Position the shaft with pinion and other parts in place.
33.Select the correct roll pin for the hole on the shaft and drive it into position.
34.Drive the second roll pin into the shaft.
35.Grease the pinion using the grease fitting on the end of the shaft.

CHUTE/AUGER/IMPELLER
AUGER/IMPELLER REMOVAL
Place unit in the belt service position.
1. Remove set screw holding auger driven pulley to shaft and remove pulley.
36.Remove three nuts holding bushings to housing on each side.
37.Grasp auger assembly and pull gear case and auger/impeller assembly free of housing.
38.Remove bearing flanges.
39.Remove shear bolts and remove auger from shaft.
40.Check all parts for wear or replacement.
41.Assemble using reverse procedure.
SHEAR BOLTS
WARNING: Stop engine, remove key, wait for
moving parts to stop and remove wire from
spark plug before leaving operator’s position
and attempting to maintain or inspect auger.
IMPORTANT: Use only Ariens shear bolts for replacement. Use of any other type of shear bolt may result in severe
damage to unit.
Occasionally an object may enter auger/impeller housing and jam auger, breaking shear bolts which secures auger
to shaft. This allows auger to turn freely on shaft preventing damage to gear drive.
To replace shear bolt:
1. Slide auger outward against roll pin and align hole in shaft with hole in auger. The holes in shaft for roll pins
and shear bolts will line up.
42.Drive the new shear bolt through hole (if shear bolt was broken this will drive remaining part from shaft).
43.Secure with nut.
DISCHARGE CHUTE
WARNING: DO NOT put hands or feet near
or under rotating parts. Keep clear of
discharge opening at all times.
WARNING: NEVER direct discharge of
material toward bystanders nor allow anyone
in front of equipment while unit is in operation.
Be familiar with area of operation.
To remove discharge chute unbolt the chute positioning assembly from the discharge chute. Disconnect chute
cable, deflector cable and hex shaft. Tip discharge chute forward and lift.
NOTE: Chute must rotate freely. If chute does not stay in position while throwing snow or if chute does not rotate
freely, adjust the cable under the control panel so the chute lock fingers engage or disengage the locking gear.
GB - 43
RUNNERS
CAUTION: Adjust auger/impeller housing
height to clear gravel or crushed rock
surfaces.
Runners should be adjusted as conditions require. Raising or lowering runners controls distance scraper blade is
held above surface being cleared.
When operating machine on gravel surface, lower runners so the housing will not pick up gravel. On concrete,
blacktopped or packed down snow surfaces, raise runners so that scraper blade scrapes clean.
Position unit on a flat level surface. Adjust runners by inserting a spacer of desired thickness under center of
scraper blade, loosen hardware, slide runners to flat surface and retighten hardware.
NOTE: Above method keeps housing level by adjusting runners equally. Uneven runners make machine difficult to
steer and results in uneven clearing.

GEAR CASE
ALUMINUM GEAR CASE
1. Remove auger/impeller and gear case from housing referring to Auger/Impeller Section.
44.Removesix bolts that hold right and left gear case halves together.
45.If flange bushings need replacement, first remove seals from outside of gear case halves with a screwdriver.
Flange bushings can then be pressed out from outside in with a bearing driver. Bushings are very lightly
pressed in.
46.When replacing bushings make sure the flat on the flange of bushing fits in the inside notch of the case.
47.There are two special washers, one on either side of bronze gear. If burred or worn, they should be replaced.
48.Holding bronze gear on rake shaft is a groove pin. When driving out, drive in direction of least resistance. The
flat on bronze gear face will fill the hole in the side of the gearcase.
49.Remove bronze bushing from front of worm shaft by sliding it off. Replace if necessary. Notice that a flat on the
bushing flange positions the bearing inside the gear case.
50.Behind rear bronze bushing is a seal which fits into a groove in gear case. It should be replaced at time of
repair.
51.Rear bushing is a larger diameter than one in front, but are identical in design. Replace if necessary.
52.If replacement of thrust collar is necessary, drive out groove pin towards direction of least resistance.
53.Inspect worm shaft for burrs or black coloration. If either show up, replace shaft.
54.Prior to re-assembly, apply Locktite 118 on gear case half. Reassemble. Make sure the flats on the bushings
are in their proper place.
This case requires Ariens L-2 P/N 00008000 and should be half full.
After assembly is complete you should be able to turn input shaft freely.
Auger/impeller gear case is lubricated with Ariens L-2 (P/N 00008000). Check lubrication by removing filler plug.
Lubrication should be even with hole with unit
sitting level. It may be necessary to insert a wire into the hole to check level. Unit will not be damaged by
over-lubricating but may cause leakage.
CAST IRON GEAR CASE
1. Remove auger/impeller and gear case from housing referring to Auger/Impeller Section.
55.Remove four bolts from side case.
56.Remove side case and gasket.
NOTE: At this point bronze gear cannot be removed.
57.While holding input shaft in one hand and using a mallet, strike case until bearing cone pops out of the case.
Bronze gear can then be removed from case.
58.After bronze gear has been removed input shaft can then be removed.
NOTE: It is not necessary to remove end cap from case.
59.To remove worm gear and bearings, simply remove bolt and washer from end of shaft.
60.Assembly is done by inserting bronze gear and worm gear at same time.
61.Using adjustment wrench, tighten down on adjustment plug until input shaft is snug.
62.Replace side cover using a sealant on threads of two bottom bolts.
Fill gear case with L-2 oil until level reaches bottom of threads in filler hole.
Check oil level periodically. Oil level must be up to oil fill hole. Change oil every 25 hours or once each season,
whichever comes first. Fill with Ariens Special L-2 Gear Lubricant (P/N 000080). Use approximately 5 oz.
