Robert Waid: nice improvising. i had to make a round key way for a pump on a wood splitter once. stilling working to this day.
dave andrews: Kudos. Love your Videos. I'm an Electrical Guy so my Mechanical knowledge is limited. Your very informative videos have gotten me out of a few situations. BTW-I'm a "Tightwad Yankee" up here in New England.
Eric Cheng: Do you recommend use tire chairs on snowblower?
SuperDagod1: When draining the gear box lube out, what type do I replace it with? Thanks Rob
Bonnie Hoenow: Donyboy73...I'm real stuck...been working on this for at least a couple of years...Ive been going thru auger belts so regularly on my mtd 10.5. I've replaced the bearing, impeller shat and both pulleys. When I spin the auger pulleys by hand I can still see a definite run out on the pulleys which I'm positive is causing the premature belt wear and ultimately throwing the belt(s) off again. I'm stumped... would you be able to offer any suggestions...I've certainly researched your videos but of course have had no success. Thanks.
Jake6995: I have a question for you. I have the gear case almost apart but I can't get the worm gear out. The rake shaft, dust cap, and side cover are off. The bull gear shaft doesn't want to come out as it interferes with the pinion gear. Any help is appreciated.
Scott Price: I'm just trying to figure what parts to order for the repair.
Scott Price: could be.....what. If the Keyway was ok and the Worm Gear chewed up wouldn't you get some sort of motion from the Auger and conversely if the Keyway was missing wouldn't the Auger spin freely?
donyboy73: yes it could be
Scott Price: I have a Noma 824. The impeller turns but Auger does not. Would this either be the Gear is chewed up or the Keyway missing/broke?
2cyclemix: Good job on cutting and shaping your own keyway. And not much snow? That's more than we see here in the Southern U.S.
koertje: I would weld it.
I am a lazy bastard.
donyboy73: @VILLAPRO71 ask liamautomechanic
donyboy73: @mmichaelc thanks, make sure to subscribe
mmichaelc: Your video is well made and you go step by step on the repair great work!
donyboy73: @thumasta666 , good idea, i thought we lived in a freezer here in winter, lol
thumasta666: next time, try putting the shaft in the freezer for a couple hours, it will shrink the metal and allow it to go in easier :D
donyboy73: @gstebb62 i forget if it was bearings or bushings, but i do know that the casing has separate oil seals
donyboy73: @gstebb62 i would have to see a video at least of it
donyboy73: @gstebb62 how about the auger bushings at each end of the shaft?
