John Deer 732 shear bolts

New to the forum and snowblowers. I've always used a skid steer on my drive. I just purchased an old 732 that appears well cared for. I pulled the shear bolts out and they appear to be a standard bolt and were torqued pretty tight. The impellar shaft does not turn and appears to be frozen. I think the prior owner had a paved drive as it was set low. I'm thinking heating it up ? Any ideas ?

Welcome to the forum, could be a bearing issue did you try turning the impeller with the large pulley behind or pressing on impeller itself?
As for the auger bolts maybe for good insurance buy 4 new shear bolts as you'll have a set as spare.

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

I wasn't clear. The impeller turns while running. It won't free turn with the bolts removed. I'm thinking it has siezed to the shaft so shear bolts wont do their job.

Ok I think you are calling the augers impeller, the impeller is the one that shoots the snow through the chute. Now with the bolts removed and it won't freewheel means that the shaft is seized to the auger tube.
So you will have to remove everything and apply pcblaster and heat to set them free.
