Ariens 8hp Snowblower impeller shaft slack

Ariens 8hp snowblower model 924050 has slop in the driveshaft from the impeller to the auger gear box.

The auger shaft seems ok no extra play in any direction.

Does this sound like the gear on the shaft and in the auger box is bad?

Everything does work just noisy.

Pulley for impeller and auger does appear to be all the way forward,but if you move the impeller it will move about 3/4 inch back and forth.

Thanks...............

Thanks Stebekk I'll check that too.
Got a round to tearing it down and the main bearing looks bad.
Have one on order.

That would have been my guess. Glad the bearing change worked out.
