Did this video help you?

Jerry Foulk: Dony it looked like the gear teeth were worn on the drive pressure side and because the gear looked symmetrical I would have turned it over so the unworn side of the teeth would be used and extend the operating life. In fact if it is not too much trouble I would have flipped he worm gear as well.

Warryck Scown: ' half moon key! lol.. 'wood-ruff' is the correct term for this key.. good as vid all the same..

Matthew Clements: 1. That is called a Woodruff key. 2. You are making a key and not a keyway. The keyway is the slot that the key goes into on both parts....

Mike Spain: 00 Cornhead grease world well when the seals are shot in an old gearbox. Got a ‘77 Ariens 24” snow blower still kicking. Built like tanks.

Roadking 2003: That's a old timer

Kris Hillis: I just aquired my first snow blower Craftsman 10/32, and I thing you are gonna be my go to move when I have a problem cause you know your stuff.
I could use a manual and can't find 1 anywhere for my model-C950-52379-5 It's made in Canada don't know the year either.
Think you can help? Thanks and keep the videos coming they're great.

Timothy Walsh: Great video thanks for sharing.

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?

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.
