Ready for snow - finally(not yellow or orange)

After blowing a seal in the gearbox of my snowblower last year I finally got it rebuilt after procrastinating for some time. It's a huge relief that its done. The blower gearbox has grease fittings for 2 upper bearings and then gear lube for the lower section. Well I was probably a bit heavy handed with the grease and I think the oil got thickened up to the thickness of cake batter and it plugged the case vent and imploded the shaft seals and then they popped out. Of course I had to take the whole thing apart to swap the seals out. Tonight I finished it up by putting some 1/4 inch rubber mat under the seat because the fan sucks the cold up from under the machine. That should keep the draft down and the heat in. This thing is a blast in the snow.
