Frederick Dunn: YOU are a craftsman! This was a great demo, I never considered shaping down my own key with the bench grinder. Snowblower key broke in the middle of a snowstorm of course, so making my own fix. Don't know what I'd do without YouTube :) Thumbs UP all the way!
Cassandra Rabideau: Right on , gonna pull that gearbox apart and see if that's the problem
Robert Davis: That old Ariens blower is twice the machine as my Craftsman 536.887992. Wish I had a new one.
Robert Davis: Donyboy73.... dam your good. Could you tell me if the 9 HP Tecumseh snow king engine has a cast iron sleeve? I'd appreciate any information? I've got one on a 2003 29'' X9 Craftsman.
Richard Gabelman: What kind of grease should go in the reducer housing?
sissy rahrah: Could you please give me advice on my Ariens snowblower , There was a chunk of ice that prevented the impeller from rotating ,I kept squeezing the handle on the handle lever then smoke came out of the side, I stopped cleared all the ice out now the impeller doesnt move at all, the engine runs fine and the the tires rotate good as well, I can only use it as a plow,, could you please tell me what I broke? Thank you
TheNoBSZone: I love these videos man. I wish all mechanics were as competent as you!
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.
pei broker: good one, thank you...
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.
Yuchin 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.
