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)

Any idea what this part is? it looks like a lower retention ring on the bottom of the chute. perfectly broke off with the part number on it. the chute now has 1/2" slop at the base, are there barrings to look out for in that area?

nice looking unit, my response is  LUBRICATION IS KEY , on this . I use LUBRIPLATE CHAIN AND CABLE SPRAY,  its made for brutal applications. I spray before use and after. never let that gear to chain dry out. also lube the double pulley spring tension frame , this will insure that the spring tension is smooth and constant on your Kevlar belt. found that just going over all metal drag contact points with lube, like chute guide wheels and mounting point to blower ,along with the auger adjustment rod , makes things effortless. wheel horses are always starved for lack of lubrication, don't keep that mind set going. been there , pete

Before I switched to all hydraulic lift tractors, I had three springs (garage door sections) on my blower lift.

The green Chevy is my F.I.L's does run but needs some attention and the yellow Ford is a neighbor's who he was supposed to fix the brakes on 3 years ago but needs to lift the radiator cap and drive a new one under  :think:...

Never thought of that.     I have repaired a few that this would have been a better fix.

      Hey guys, @wheelhorseman, @WVHillbilly520H, brought this stuff home today. Big question did wh make a gooseneck trailer like this? Really hope so, paint looks right and came out of the same lot as the rest of this. Owner swears he had blade and blower on the 414-8 Which means it'll fit my 312-8. He talked me (or bribed) me into taking tractor with me. Got the weights and chains too. $440 for all of it. Tractor runs but has fuel delivery problems.

      Hi guys,
       
      i have a 44” 2 stage snowblower on my 520h. I was wondering if anyone has had an issue of it feeling like it’s jumping or skipping in heavy snow? I can’t figure out if it’s the auger gear or the drive chain skipping. Obviously I’m on it when this happens so it’s tough to diagnose.
       
      Thanks Guys!

      Nice old snowblower with all the parts. It has been modified to fit on a tach-o-matic which is how I used it. worked great for sidewalks and tight spaces. I do have the bracket to make the snowblower original as s een in the pic

      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.
