spanner tool for CI gear box

Does anyone have or made a spanner tool to take apart the cast iron gear boxes?

I used a flat screwdriver. I believe I used it with a hammer to break it loose and then just walked it off. You can lock it around the impeller shaft and spin it.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

I tried that with no luck. I am trying not to crack it. Are the threads reversed?

I believe mine was standard threads. I used a big screwdriver at an angle with a hammer to break it loose then just wedged the screwdriver between the impeller shaft and 1 slot and walked it around to remove it and replace it.

I would think that a flat stock piece of steel to span across, and a set of vise grips might also do the trick. With an older pair, you might be inclined to use a little friendly persuasion.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Worked with a large screw driver. Thanks for your help!

Now I just have to figure out how to take the rest of it apart.

I did See that. My gear box is the square kind. Not the Helicon gear type. Machine model number 924073. I have the rake shaft out, the pin washer we discussed and the side case.

There is this video. Unfortunately it skips over most of the steps involving the gearbox.

Thanks for the help.

I am just so suprised on how little info is out there on this gear box.
