So I took my newly acquired JD model 49 blower out for the first time today. I made it 3/4 of the way around the block when it stopped throwing. The drive shaft to the chain housing turns when the PTO is on, so I think the gearbox is fine and the PTO and belt are working as well. When I try to turn the anuger by hand, it freely turn forward and back; in the forward direction, the drive shaft does not move, but turning the anger backwards, the drive shaft also turns backwards.

Hoping this is a shear pin, but would appreciate knowing if there is another cause I should hunt down as well.

Thanks!
