sinngle stage CL score!

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.

      Hi all,
       
      i am looking for a diagram on how to mount the lift assist spring on a 75' c-120. i have looked around and cannot seem to find one. i have tried to mount it on the main crossbeam located near the end of the lift rod and doesn't seem to offer any assistance. After working with that snowblower for and hour becomes quite difficult. i am also wondering if anyone has ever done an effective mounting of an electric wench as a means of lift? Thanks in advance for any help you could offer. CA-120 special model # 133619

      So long story short I scored a two stage snowthrower for my 520xi in the off season and hooked it up to my tractor and finally got a chance to use it this past weekend after we got a storm that dumped about a foot of fresh now.  First time out everything was going good and the snowthrower was moving snow like a beast, I did notice though when I got to the berm at the end of the road the blower would shake and vibrate pretty good when going through it.  I thought it was just normal operation since the snow tends to be more compacted from the plow, I just made sure to go nice and slow when I got to the end of the driveway and was able to clear my driveway and the neighbors without any issues.  Fast forward to the next day and I fired up the tractor to clean up the driveways as we got another couple inches over night.  Was able to finish my driveway but halfway through the neighbors when clearing the end of the driveway the blower shook and the suddenly stopped.  I shut it down and looked around and noticed the belt was broken, I didn't think too much of it as when I put the blower on the tractor the belt was showing some wear but when I saw how expensive the toro belts are I decided to run it as it looked like it would make it through another season no problem.  Once I got it back in the garage I removed the belt and that's when I noticed that something didn't seem right, the spring loaded pulleys on the right side of the pulley box were hanging below the blower frame, I took the chain and belt cover off the blower and noticed there's damage to the main belt pulley on the blower as well.  I pulled the pulley box off and noticed that there's groves worn into the metal from the pulley and what looks like some belt rub.  Anybody have any clues on what caused the belt to fail?  I'm including pictures to hopefully give some clues to those who have used these blowers extensively.  I followed the manual while installing the blower but I'm wondering if maybe I don't have something assembled correctly or am missing some crucial part.  I'd really hate to spend the money on a new belt only to have it blow because I didn't correct the actual issue.  I will say all the bearings seem tight on the blower and there doesn't appear to be any play in the shafts.  I look forward to any insight you guys can offer, thanks.

      Hi, I am looking for any and all parts for a B-115. I am still pretty new to the wheel horse game, though I am willing to learn a lot. I need some help finding a Briggs 191707 8hp motor, vertical shaft. I prefer to have this motor so I can hook up my stock wiring harness and be good, but I am also fine with taking in another motor that is equal or greater power. I am also looking for snow removal attachments as well, mainly a b-series snowblower/plow. Any help that can be given would be great! Again fairly new to this (had 1 wheel horse before and I messed it up bad) so I need some extra help with these things.

      For sale is my good condition tall chute snow thrower for the classic garden tractors(300,400,500)  Sold my last classic and only have an Xi so it's time for this to go.  Only trades I'm interested in would be for Xi attachments.

      Up for grabs is a super 44" 2 Stage Snowblower, with ALL the hardware to install. I will include Wheel weights, and a nice set of chains too. I believe it was bought new in 1997, the owner was elderly a wee bit older than me..... and unsure of when he got it. The Tractor was a 1990 that it was on.It fits 300-400-500 Series Wheel Horse Models. The numbers on the blower are in the pictures. I enclosed a few pictures, and I have rotated the entire assembly.. Please ask questions, I will be more than happy to assist you. The unit is complete, and is very tight. Last used in 2014 he expressed to me.
