Does anybody know what the rpm of the auger should be on a # 49 blower hooked up to a 318? Mine runs at 878 rpm is this fast enough?
I'm curious as to how you measured or otherwise determined the actual auger RPMs.

I'm hoping you weren't out there TODAY (in the -30 C weather) measuring your auger RPM! Or if you were, that it didn't take long!

Sasky, let's see a photo of your 318 with cab in snowblowing action.

I used a digital photo tach just pointed it at the auger sprocket and I did it inside my heated garage. The wife said it was to cold to take pics on Sunday when I was blowing snow, but that cab is sure nice. Oh and I forgot to add that
my motor runs at 3290 rpm, I think they should run 3450 at wot. Does that sound right?

Sasky - yes 3450 is the recommended WOT speed. You'll be amazed how much that little rpm boost makes to your 318. Mine was running 3180 this summer and when I got it up to 3450 it felt like a completely different machine.
