JD 170 Snow Blower - How do you remove auger from blower housing?
I am breaking my JD170 blower down so I can remove the rust and repaint. The blower chute is going to get sand blasted, but I am going to wire wheel the blower housing because I would have to wait until the sandblasting place was doing an outside job.
I have everything removed except for the auger.
One on side of the auger there is the gear that drives the auger shaft. It had a set screw, but it is still stuck on there good.
There is also bearings assembleys on each side of the housing, one assembly is hiding behind the gear I just mentioned.
I am not sure what order I should be tackling this. I don't want to bugger up parts if there is a better procedure to break it all down.
