Make sure you swap the left and right wings as their on the wrong sides. Good price and with some paint will look great.

Thanks for the tips guys! I wonder how long they have been on the wrong side. The parts breakdown shows they are on the wrong side too. :notworthy:

Any of you guys ever work on one of these blowers? I need to know what is the best way to take the auger of, I have everything just about taken of. But the auger, and the shaft and pullys, that drive the auger. They are going to be tuff to get off. I think maybe the bareings maybe rusted on,are they pressed on. :notworthy::thumbs:

you have to take the pin out on the shaft opposite of the handle side then drive the shaft out,once you get it moving it goes ok the bearings are inside the auger shaft which will come off when you get the 3\4 shaft pounded out,the bearings come out of the auger pretty easy,then you can work on the auger alot easier,when i rebuilt mine i found getting the pin back in the 3\4rod the hardest part,its alot easier to paint the body and inside alot easier,good luck

Well I got the auger out today.(thanks to Don for his advice)It will need new bearings for the auger, they are ball beartngs. The seals are shot. Here are some pictures of todays work.

The auger needs some straighting, a few rough edges ground off.

good job getting her apart,if there is a bearing shop near you try them for the bearings,they are pretty standard and not too expensive.

Got the parts all painted IH Red. Had to do a little jugling to paint them. It's about 30 degrees out, so I warmed them up by the wood burner,took them outside painted them one at a time, brought them back in, hung them by the heater to dry.

Great Work on that blower!

I just want to offer one piece of advice. The exterior gear (on the left rear of the blower, on the end of the pulley shaft) that drives the chain and auger should have a guard on it. On my first tractor and snow blower this guard was missing when I bought it. Long story short I got a glove to close to it and lost the tip of my left pointer finger, from the cuticle to the end. I turned the PTO off every time that night, except the last time. Made a guard immediatly after that, but it was too late. :notworthy::thumbs: Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!

The old guards are a simple piece of flat bar bolted over the gear and chain. I believe I have seen a larger guard covering the entire gear around the shaft, could even be made of plastic, not sure.

There's even a guard for the chain in the front of the blower from the top down around the bottom. That is also flat bar. I just don't want to see anyone else make a stupid mistake.

Still your doing a great job. I just replaced the chain and the two bearings on the pulley shaft of my snowblower. It did'nt go as easy as I would have hoped but it runs smooth now.
