Ready for snow - finally(not yellow or orange)

Recommended Posts

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.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
