Re: 190-341 snow blower does not fit on gt 1554
City Boy, Thanks for your information, I just purchased a 190-823 blower off crag's list for $600. It was brand new still in crate, about 4 or 5 years old. The last owner had never installed it had since sold the tractor he bought it for so had no use for it. Following your posts I was able to quickly unload id from my pickup sliding it down ramps and get it set up and installed. As you discussed I had to cut off the U-shaped pin sleeves. I used a 1/2"x 1" bolts to attach to frame but will be looking into some pins as they were almost impossible to start nuts on inside of frame. I checked and see the 190-032 version has a different pin design, I may order those. The control bar on the left side is rubbing on the hood, which I haven't addressed yet. Comparing the part numbers for the rod between the 190-823 and the CUB version 190-032 I noted a difference, but the $50 price tag prohibits me from buying a new rod, I needed I will bend it as I plan to eliminate it in the future anyway. I would like to add some motors and actuators in the future. Maybe next year if funds permit. When I fired up the blower I had a problem with the inside end of the auger fins hitting the bottom of the bucket, both sides were hitting, but only one of the fin ends on each auger, I assumed this was a manufacturing flaw and ground them off so they cleared. Thanks for your great posts they were greatly helpful.
