Isn't there an adjustment using the washers between the flag and lift tube for leveling? Also the Dial-A-Height should be dialed out.

That's just for how high it lifts. Add washers....more lift. :)

Very nice score! As others said the wings are backwards OR upside down. 

 

Chain tension is very important. If the idler sprockets are worn down to a point they need to be replaced as well as the chain. If the chain should let loose it's not unusual to have to toss the blower. It can do a lot of damage. 

 

Chain and sprockets are are readily available and cheap! 

 

Good luck w her!

Also want to check the chain tension and oil after every use. Chain adjustment is done with the idler circled and speaking of idlers check them often for looseness. They get water in them and wear quickly but replacement ones are at TSC.

I don't see how this will adjust, it's does not look to be a slot to slide the idler in to add or release tension in the chain.
 

. To adjust, loosen the bolt that secures idler sprocket to left side housing. (Fig. 28). 3. Slide idler sprocket in adjustment slot until chain is snug, but not tight (Fig. 28). 4. Tighten idler sprocket securely

Yes, the lowest nut on the left (3/4" wrench/socket), you will need to loosen it up quite a bit if not all the way the slot is most likely rusted/painted over not much adjustment there 1/2"-1" max after getting the scale out of there tighten back up to "snug"/loose then use a "prybar" on the idler sprocket to move/add tension without getting the chain too tight approximately 1/4" deflection on the chain from top to bottom idler sprockets (you will need to remove the chain guard for access) rotate auger a few times double checking the tension till you get it right then firmly tighten the sprocket nut, Jeff.

Another "tool" to use to set the height are paint stirrers from Lowes/HD/paint store. The small gallon-can ones are 1/8" thick and handy for walk-behind snowblowers. For a tractor-mounted snowthrower/snowblower the five-gallon stirrers are about 1/4".

 

Great minds think alike John.  I use paint stirrers also, only the gallon size though :-)

This didn't come with a spring and I found a #150 punching bag spring on Amazon for $8.
We jacked the blower higher than the lifter bar would lift,

Attached the spring to the eye-bolt, that had the nyloc nut backed nearly all the out

Attach the bell of a 1/4" shackle through the other end of the spring, and the pin through an existing hole in the frame just in font of the floor board,

Tighten nyloc nut to apply tension to the spring

Lower jack and enjoy your lighter blower

(black is rust-converting primer I-H Red tractor paint is going on tomorrow)

      I have a C-161 8 speed manual.  We recently got some snow here in CT (about 8-9" for me) and because of the 2 inches of existing snow on my driveway from Christmas, I had almost zero traction.  (For what it's worth, went out about half way through the storm, when the wheels did hook up to the ground she plowed like an animal.)
       
      A friend of mine gave me a snow thrower a few months back.  To my recollection, he said it worked on his C-161 hydro.  I mention this because I don't know if there's a difference in attachment sizes.  Just looking at it, it seems as though the "arm" portion of the snow thrower is too long.  Even so, how the hell do I hook this up?  I'm usually decent figuring crap like this out, but this one has me stumped.   
       
      Thanks for the help.  All the manuals I downloaded were vague and only listed parts and part numbers.  No "install" instructions, best I can find.

      NOS snowthrower attachment, model 06-36SL01, fits 200-series WH tractors. NOS (new-old stock) never been used or even mounted. Needs work from having been banged around and stored outside for many years, some surface rust, belt is missing, pics tell the story. First $150 takes it. Email W1HYN@yahoo.com.

      Looking to sell my 2 stage snow blower.   I have owned it for the last 5 years and it works awesome on my 520.   I changed the bearings in the front, a new wear block for the chain and a new belt.   I haven't used in the last two years and its taking up space in my barn.  I have a new toy to plow my driveway with now.   All the brackets, extensions and tubes included to make it work.

      The snowblower is used and came with my tractor when I bought my 416-8 in 1989.  I've used it every single year.  Recently replaced the outboard bearing and had a new scraper bar welded to the bottom and the belt is basically new.  I coat the chain with bearing grease and spray the unit down with WD-40 for storage in the summer, its ready to use.  Asking $200 or OBO.
