power window Electric chute

Recommended Posts


Thought everyone might wont to see my snow blower power chute. Made with a GM 80's power window motor. Was able to use original cable had to move cable mount bolt to the front of chute. New assembly was mounted behind chute . I did use plastic material from a window washer fluid jug to wrap around base of chute to take up slop out so it would turn smoother. Made the the gear coupling out of a socket that I de-tempered with a rosebud the drill it to fit on a 1/2" shaft with set screw. Got a plug for motor so it's easy to remove. The self aligning pillow block bearing are over kill but they made making the cable spool a lot easier to make and bolt up. The pillow block bearing made it possible to mount it on the tapered box over drive belt. Was lucky enough to have some scrape Stainless to make it all out of so not paint required. Picture doesn't show socket coupling.
