Hey guys, recently picked up a used snowblower that's in need of some tlc. I'm trying to get the auger gearbox assembly out of the housing and have run into a snag. Does anyone here know what holds the impellor shaft in the gearbox behind the housing? Any help would be very VERY appreciated!

I believe you already have your answer from the other thread, but...

When I repainted mine 2 year ago, it just came right out once you remove the bolts holding the auger in place (i.e. both sides of the snow blower housing.) The impeller is pinned to the auger gearbox, but the impeller itself is just splined to the main gearbox in the rear (nothing else holds in in place.)

Maybe it's just rusted in place?

Also, you can get a parts diagram from Cub Cadet if you go to the parts section on their website and type the 190-341-100 part number in. It will pull up an illustrated parts breakdown of the snow blower and all the sub assemblies.

Thanks for the reply Eric. I think you may be right about it being rusted. I was looking at a parts diagram to see if it showed the impellor shaft being splined or not but it's pretty vague so I assumed it should just pull out. I was afraid though it may be held in by something so I didn't want to yank the **** out of it and end up with another part that I'd need to replace.

You should be fine pulling hard on it since the main gearbox is bolted to the snowblower housing at the rear. Nothing else will come out with it as the splined shaft going to the impeller is part of the main gearbox.

Maybe try wiggling the auger assembly a little once you have it unbolted from the housing in the hopes the impeller might break free from the splined shaft. I don't remember how much play you have there, but I think there's some.

Good luck with it!

With the help of a friend we finally got it. **** thing was rusted on there good. After much pulling and swearing we finally got the torch out and heated the **** out of the impellor till it finally wiggled off. Definately didn't come off as easy as it was suppose to!

Glad it worked out for you.

Were you going to repaint it or was there a some sort of issue with the auger gearbox that needed repairing?

This started as a repair job but since I have it apart I'm going to hit some rusty spots for a temporary fix. I'm planning on tearing it down again in the Summer and having it professional painted in hopes of making it look good as new.

Gentlemen,
I'm sorta new here. Can you tell me what a fair price would be on snow thrower model 190-341-100 . . . I think I've got a sweet deal in the pipeline . . . This one is from 2004 never used, like NOS. Anything I should look for?

Thanks!!

Probably should be a new thread ... but:
If it is truely never used, NOS ... well you ssee the price on the new ones ... let that guide your upper limit.

I picked one up earlier this spring, for $300. It is in better than avg condition, owner spot painted any bad spots every year (well taken care of). This also came with an OEM weight bracket (used but still had the sticker on it) and two suitcase weights ... probably $100 worth total.
