got This Snow Blower Today

Recommended Posts

Coming along well, Chas!

Glad to see I'm not the only one who has to preheat my parts, run outside to paint 'em, then race back in to hang 'em up to dry!

Happy New Year!

I went to our local TSC Store today, I picked up a couple of machine screws for the shoot on the blower with lock nuts. I wandered around a little bit checking thing out I noticed they have a lot of roler chain different sizes in 10ft lengths,sprockets.bearing, I will get my new chain there when the time comes. Any body happen to know the right length of the chain before it has strecthed.

Here are some more I did a little sanding with an electric grinder with a sandind disk, really had the dust flying. Pounded out a bunch of dents.

The PO must have had a rocky driveway. a couple of the auger blades were bent. Got them straighten out. :thumbs:

Took the snowblower shell to a fellow that rebuilds old truck and cars. I asked him if he could repair the holes in it and fix the blade part. He said thats a piece of cake. Here is where he started.

Looks like its certainly coming along. Great Work! :thumbs:

I never thought about using POR-15 on a snowblower before. I think it would work the best on the auger, chute, and inside of the the blower around the auger. It is tough stuff. I used it on my mower deck rebuild. But just on the underside of the deck.

See here Deck Rebuild

Read and follow the instructions carefully, it dries like rock and is nice and slippery.

Good Luck! :banghead:

Got my POR 15 fhe other day! they sent me a catalog of all their products 55 pages worth also elaberate directions to. I will paint the blower when the weather warms up enough to paint outside. The recomend painting with a brush you can get a better layer down, they say it gets so hard you should put saran wrap on the lip of can, if you don't use it all or you won't be able to get the lid off again.Here is a Picture

I think it also says somewhere that if you get a drop of your own sweat in the paint cup or can its ruined. Just use small amounts and it will do great. Good Luck!

Nice job Chas. Personally I don't think I'd waste the POR-15 on the outside... the exterior of the thrower doesn't (or shouldn't B) ) get the abuse that the interior moving parts do.

So you used the POR as an undercoat? Then painted the red over it? Or does the POR come in red? One more here - where did you find this POR?

Thanks Chas! I book marked it. Interesting they even have floor covering for garages, wonder if it would hold up to welding and torch sparks? I'll have to check.

Duke seeing as you have used the stuff, how much would it take for three decks [underside] 60", 48" , 42"

Well As Far As The Paint Goes I Would Say About A Qt Maybe A Qt And A Pint. I Would use the hardnose version as it will take more abrasion for a deck. Make sure you use all their steps, marine clean, metal ready, This Frame was done with it back about 18 years ago this is when I had no gray hairs! B)

I bought a quart can of POR15 for use on two 36 inch rear discharge mower decks for our B-80 tractors. I cleaned them real well with wire wheel brushes on a drill and used a strong power washing.

I put two coats of the clear POR15 and than did two coats of the hardened paint that POR15 sells. If I were doing it again (which I plan on doing on my 32 inch wheel horse Lawn Ranger mower decks) I would buy pint cans to do these jobs as the POR15 is difficult to presere even when you follow the sealing instructions.

This stuff looks and acts like porcelain!
