Impeller Shaft

What would cause the impeller shaft to move backand forth ? so much so that the impeller blades scrape the back of the auger housing and the auger pulley hits the engine frame ? Roll pins are all intact, Worm gear is good.

thanks powershift93,
the manual has list 3 bearing type parts around the impeller shaft ,

2 are listed as bearing flanges and 1 is a bearing flat roller . should i just replace all 3 ?

If the shaft is moving back and forth it is the bushings in the front gearbox.

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

best bet just replace them all. that way you won't have to worry about it for awhile.

Just hoping that your auger has not rusted to the shaft and caused the front gearbox gears to fail. I think that's worse case scenerio but if you remove your shear pins and the auger does not spin on the shaft then it's possible. Best of luck, hope it's the cheaper bearings repair.

The meltdown is under way ...

Welcome to the forum.

The best thing to do is to tell us the exact machine you have. Without model and serial numbers it's just a guessing game.

With those numbers we can usually look it up and "see" an exploded diagram for the machine and give a more accurate answer.
You can also add that info to your signature.

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

I have to agree, make and model makes a difference.

In all likelihood it's the impeller side bushing in the gearbox. Here's a picture of one that's worn out along with a replacement on one I rebuilt:


You will have to tear it down completely including getting the rakes off the auger shaft to take it all apart.
