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.

      I got hold of a Wheel Horse snow blower model 6 6212. It has the crank with cable to direct the shoot. Everything is there but the spool the cable is wound around. Can someone tell me the dimensions of that spool. Diameter and length. Thank you.

      I have a 42" Snow Blower for Sale.  Includes the lift tube and flag.  This was used most recently on a 1979 C-161, but it will work on many other models.  I used it for over 10 years here in Michigan and never had a problem clearing my drive way, even in the worst conditions that we ever had.  The wheel weights were made by Wheel Horse as well and have the company logo on them.  Also included are tire chains and the carriage bolts to attach the weights.
       
      Hopefully somebody in this community has a use for this.  I no longer have the space to store it or a tractor to put it on..

      I have a one owner 1979 Wheel Horse for sales. Also included is a 48" mowing deck and a 42" snow blower. Tractor is a hydro static drive model with hydraulic lift. The original Kohler K341 is still in the tractor. The tractor also has wheel weights and chains. I also have a full set of manuals.

      The engine runs strong, but it does burn a little oil. Hydro drive seems to be pretty strong.

      I used the tractor to mow grass and throw snow at my last house and it did both jobs very well. I have moved and cannot store this equipment. That is the only reason I am selling it.

      If you have questions please feel free to drop me an e-mail and I will do my best to answer them.

      Thanks for looking.
