    Electrical Trouble in the Snow

    For all grounds I always use star washers and dielectric grease between wire end and ground. Never had a problem afterward. Don't be stingy with the grease...

    44" 2 stage blower

    I wanted to check mine also and couldn't get the Allen plug out. So I pulled the plate to check the gears. Looked new. While I had the plate off I drilled and tapped a 3/8 hole in the top to fill and check. Used 90w gear oil. Filled to about 1/2 full. Use screwdriver or wire for dip stick. Works for me... Hole in top of box not in plate. If you do this make sure you drill hole where the bolt or plug does not contact gears...
