you will need links,i buy all types to have on hand,that way what ever way the chain ends you can join it,you will also need either a chain breaker or a grinder and punches,at least a good file and punches to drive the pin out to attach new link

I bought this type of chain breaker last year for my snowthrower on a popular auction site. It is sold for use on Go-Karts and Mini-Bikes. Solidly built, and it is steady to use.

Hey John,  I like that chain breaker!  I bought a more elaborate one for $14, works OK, but I was looking for something simpler, kind of like my bicycle chain breaker but more robust.  BTW, the bicycle chain breaker cost $29-but cyclists are willing to pay more usually :-)

Thanks Everyone. I got the one from Tractor Supply. I used a dremel to get the link off...fast and no problem.

Now I need the two sprockets as the bearings went. Any suggestions, recommendations for this? Rob

Try The Big Bearing Store or MSC Direct.  I have bought from both.  Both on line.  Search under "roller chain"

TSC carries them, but are they often out of stock.  Worth a try.  USA Bearings and Belts should have them if you want to order online.

I have bought bearings for the end of the drive shaft on a 79369 single stage thrower and the #40 roller chain sprockets at the big bearing store . Delivery within 3 days.  The sprockets at TSC are $20 each if I recall and this link is for the same sprockets made in China of course but well built.  Running for 4 years so far . Cheapest price I could find. BTW these have 17 teath while original riveted sprockets had 18 but as long as it is for a #40 roller chain not an issue.Get the correct diameter hole too. Mine as most are 1/2 inch bolt hole.

Sorry for the clumsy typing.  Blower w High Shoot # 79360 NOT 79369!  Also TSC sprockets have 17 teeth too.

      Previously had this listed with a wagon. Sold the wagon and dropped the price. 
      1984 Wheel Horse C-195 black hood edition
      19.5 hp twin Kohler engine
      3 point hitch (NO rear PTO)
      60" heavy plow
      51" mower deck (That's without the guide chute attached; not sure if that's considered 60". )
      36" Snow thrower
      original owners manual
      Wheel weights (Tires are also filled, gel I think)
      Chains on front tires and parts for chains on the rear (rear chains in picture are not available)
      An assortment of other part, including heavy bar for the snow thrower, a pull chair, spare oil filter, etc.
       
      The tractor starts and runs well. It has some cosmetic issues but not what I would call damage. It's big, powerful, and a lot of fun. 
       
      It starts, but the current battery is undersized, so while it starts fine in the summer, I've been using my truck to jump it in the winter. The easy solution is battery with more cold cranking Amps.
      The mower deck has been redone with some welding (heavy duty steel) where it rusted through. The center guide wheel it missing.
      The snow thrower works, but is currently missing a link on the chain, and the sprockets are worn.

      So I have a 312 Wheel Horse. I have the Snow Blower attached and it was working great. I was using it last night when all of a sudden I heard a bang up near the the blower. I quickly disengaged the PTO lifter the blower and backed up to see if I had hit something. After inspecting i found that i did not hit anything. So I started clearing out any snow I realized nothing was stuck and the shear pins were still good. The augers had the normal amount of play. So I fired it back up and tried to engage the pto again it kind of bogged down and stalled out the engine almost. So I drove it to where i had better light. I could not see anything wrong still so I decided to try to engage it one more time to see if I could see anything. Well it started throwing so I decided to test it out and it worked fine. Then as I was going along it just stopped throwing again. So I don't know what it is. I plan on taking a look at the gearbox when I get home to make sure that's all set. Just thought I would check to see if any of you have suggestions of what I could check.
