  1. #40 Chain. Use 1/2 link or add extra link?

    Backyard Round Table: L & G Tractor Related Topics
    Got all the possum guts cleaned out. Found that does not work for a chain lube. Will go back to White Lithium grease. Have it all back together. Hard to see that idler sprocket. Took some pictures to try and see what it looks like when I enlarged them. Notice in one picture the top of the...

    Threw me off when I first noticed it this morning. No idea how it got dropped in here. Not even in same folder as tractor and snow blower repair.

    Took some pictures of the full link and 2 master links. First picture just to give you an idea of the close quarters when working on this. Image of new full link and 2 master links. Image shows how idler sprocket sits in there. Looking at above picture this morning I can see the...

    Looking over everything today I found the 45T sprocket on the impeller shaft is wobbling. Never thought to look close. Trusted the guy that did it. Was a new back road machine shop I found. Thought I was going to like this place. But since he messed up the shaft too, I do not think I will be...

    Seems to me to be the problem also. Or at least one of the problems. Cotter pin is weak. This last one I went through my stash of cotter pins and found a thicker one that fit through the hole. Thought I had solved it. But something is putting pressure on the side links to expand them apart and...

    Got everything lined up. Put new chain, master link, and half link on. All went well . Blew for about an hour and stopped for the day. Went out today to finish up. Almost finished and chain broke. Only ran snow blower about 15 minutes. Half link came apart again. What am I missing...

    Snow turned out to be less than expected. Only had 4" out there. Dry stuff with a ice crust on top. Blower ran really well. Was pretty happy. Much quieter than before. But still some chain noise. Winds really came up. 40 to 45 mph gusts. Decided to leave the exposed driveway until winds died...
  9. Chain sprocket 17 tooth instead of 15 tooth

    Backyard Round Table: L & G Tractor Related Topics
    Finally got the blower all back together. Getting the power transfer shaft this sprocket is on to run true was a real bear. Frame was a little bent and a little twisted. Hung the blower on the tractor today, and it runs smooth. Much quieter than it was. Will be out testing snowblower tomorrow...
  10. Bearing spins in carrier

    Backyard Round Table: L & G Tractor Related Topics
    Added bonus to this carrier is the 2 pieces snap together around the bearing. Base has dimples, larger half has holes the dimples sit in. Going to make it much easier when working blind underneath the frame. No more trying to hold the 3 pieces in place while trying to get the washer on, and...

    No way to adjust distance between sprockets on this blower set up. Not possible to get the chain to wrap around to the next tooth. Made up a tool to help, but best I could do was get the the last chain roller to hit the top of the next tooth. The half inch deflection seems right. More was too...
  12. #40 Chain. Use 1/2 link or add extra link?

    Decided to go with a half link. One full link was too much. Too much slack. Half link then a master link. Spins pretty quiet.

    I think many of us have gone over to the dark side. The white back ground was just too bright.
  14. Bearing spins in carrier

    Backyard Round Table: L & G Tractor Related Topics
    The old one does have curvature built in to hold the curved edge of the bearing. The new one has more curvature built in. I also think the new one is a better design. Will be a bit harder to bend. And will grip the bearing better to keep it from spinning in the holder. Metal thickness is less...

    Backyard Round Table: L & G Tractor Related Topics
    New bearings came in with carriers. Decided to go with new one. Will keep old one in the spares for the snowblower box. New one went in OK today.

    Getting my snowblower back together. Tried the chain tonight. Had one pre cut from roll. 32 links, same as old one. But I had changed the lower sprocket from a 15T tooth to a 17 tooth. So chain a little short now. Chain on as tight as I could pull it. Picture of lower sprocket with chain on...

    Was not meaning to insinuate we lost people because of the move. Although It may be part of it. Change is not only inevitable, it is necessary. Quote by Frank Zappa. My experience is pretty much limited to a few forums or sub forums. But did want to know if others had noticed fewer posts...

    Is it just me or has the number of new posts dropped off since the big change? Seems to me there are not as many people posting lately in the forums I get alerts for.
