My New-to-Me Jacobsen 52624-2056 Manual and Auger Removal

I recently purchased my first snowblower, a 1971 Jacobsen Imperial 26 Heavy Duty Two Stage blower. Model/SN is 52624-2056.

I'm currently looking for a parts manual. I've found manuals for the more common 52638/40/42 but they are slightly different - they have two belts, one for drive and one for the auger, mine has a single belt.

The previous owner welded one auger to the rhs drive shaft - nice. Once I grind the welds, what's the best way to replace the auger? Can I remove the rhs drive shaft through the side of the housing once the end bearing is removed or does the entire auger/gearbox assembly etc get pulled forward from the front?

Thanks, Tom

I think you will have to crack it in half and remove the shaft and gears along with it. Don't be surprised if things are seized onto the shafts though - unless the PO was in the habit of greasing things. (Not my kind of luck!) Good luck Tom! SHould make a nice solid machine once you get er going......

to the forum Tom. Looks to have a newer model 8 hp?? Tecumseh engine on it along with newer snow hog tires. Good luck with the repairs.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Nice to see another Jacobsen owner. Sorry it's fighting you.

We love a good project with photos. Take some photos of that nuts welding so we can give you our best guess.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
