Auger gearbox finally died-any tips on replacement?

Well my aluminum gearcase on the 1978 924040 (large wheel no diff. 24 bucket) finally let go today. So I ordered the cast iron shooting match for $200, I guess you have to pay to play. Owned the machine since new, and except for bearings and tires this is the only expense.

So the impeller had to be pressed off by a machine shop. Now I'm ready to put it back together. Any tips? Should I lube the axles or squirt them full after assembly? Must be some tricks to make this whole thing easier.

It's fixed. It was quite easy. The only issues were getting the old impeller off. Went back together easy enough.

Glad to hear. That looks great in there. Should be good to go for another 40 years now.

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

Would the old cast iron ones fit and work in that bucket?

Nice to see old iron getting a second life. Good on you for not scrapping it.

Dug 150 foot path through virgin 4 foot snow in the yard for oil delivery. Still a great machine. Getting so deep is over the shoot and way over the intake and exhaust.

Mind sharing where you purchased your gearbox assembly for $200?
