Ariens 10000 Series engagement cam removal

Hi there looking for some direction on how to remove the engagement cam on the impeller shaft.

I plan on replacing the impeller bearing and auger bushings and repainting the blower housing, chute etc. on my 1967 vintage snow thro, however I can't figure out how to get the cam and spring off the shaft to get at the bearing assembly.

Can't find any videos on the interweb, so any help would be much appreciated.

I have soaked all auger shaft bushing nuts and bolts and impeller drift pins and bearing assembly with penetrating oil, and will let it work for a day or two.

Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated.

There should be a couple roll pins hiding in there (I think 3/16?). If you spray it off a little it may be more apparent on the inboard side. The rod handle I think is held by a cotter pin at the bottom.

Oneboltshort,
Thanks for the quick response. I did see the 2 roll pins and soaked them with penetrating oil. So I remove the pins and the cotter pin on the bottom of the operating handle. This should allow the assembly to come apart enough to remove the cam?
Can the roll pins be re used?

Thanks, much appreciated

Ziggy65...

Just remove the 1/2" bolts and flanges on the bucket sides holding the auger assembly in the bucket.....
Then just pull the complete auger / gearbox assembly forward out of the bucket.

No need to fuss with the engagement assembly as the gearbox splined shaft will just pull out of the impeller bearing and coupler clutch half. Then you just have to pull spring and coupler off of bucket. If impeller shaft is Rusted into the bearing you just have to remove the 3 nuts from the retainer holding the impeller bearing into the bucket, and then you will be able to easily pull the gearbox and auger assembly out from the front of the bucket. It's a lot easier than you think. Post up your progress. Good luck !!!

Thanks for your input, I understand exactly what you are suggesting. Will give it a try, hopefully bearing is not rusted on the shaft. Will post my progress.
Thanks again, much appreciated

@Zuiggy,

I have 2 of the 10000 series … one of which I have recently restored. I had no need to pull the bucket bearing, as it was still in good shape, but the finger and cam units came off real easy.

I went through the entire body, transmission, everything, even replacing decals.

You can see the final result is worth it.

Wow, that is a beautiful restoration, you sure can be proud of your efforts.
Looks like you had a supervisor on the deck when you were priming the bucket
What orange paint did you use? I have purchased 4 Dupli color DE1620 Chevy Orange spray cans.

I made sure to prep it good, and used a primer … I used the Rustoleum Farm Husqvarna Orange on this machine, which I bought at Lowes. … it is extremely close to the Ariens Orange, and by doing the complete machine, looks exactly original.

I did since buy a can of Rustoleum Allis Chalmers Orange from Grainger's, to see if it is more to the exact color for touch-ups on other machines I have. I have not used that yet.

I have heard that Chevy Orange was indeed another match for the Ariens color.

Well you guys were bang on.

After removing the auger assembly flanges on the side of the bucket, the auger/gearbox/impeller assembly smoothly slid out from the bucket. Much easier than I would have expected.

The 53 year old auger bushings showed no wear when compared to the replacement bushings I had purchased. Going to re install them as they are definitely a better quality than the new ones.
The impeller bearing is toast though, glad I decided to tackle this now, as it was on it's way out.

I have to disassemble the auger assembly and chute, then thorough degrease, grinding and sanding in preparation for primer and paint. Probably at least a month before we get decent weather for painting.

Thanks for your help, much appreciated

@Ziggy,

Great job. While your at it, you may want to consider changing those lawn tires over to the tubeless XTrac, as in my photos, as I have them on all my machines, with a couple still with the SnowHogs.

The XTrac are fantastic, as all the new blowers come with that style now.

If you do decide to change the tires yourself, get yourself one of those mini tire changers like the one at Harbor Freight, on sale or with coupon, as they make easy work of changing small tires, along with a heat gun and proper tire lube.
