Friction wheel hub and shaft

I’m usually fairly decent at tracking down old parts and what not. My grandfather’s John Deere TRS26 built in 1994 (I assume from the tecumseh number and machine serial number) has got me stumped. The friction wheel hub and shaft are stripped out. The machine has R, 1, 2 just barely and all other speeds are non existent. Any help locating the shaft, friction wheel and hub would be appreciated. Also is this a Murray or Ariens built blower?

That’s what I thought. Can anyone help me figure out how to search for a Murray part? Maybe a generic model number of the same vintage from a different manufacturer?

That chain and hex shaft looks like it never saw any lube either.

You mean your grandfather God not have the manual for the parts breakdown?

You can not enter the info online to get a schematic?

I would think JD site would surely help you, but I don't own a Deere.

Well I own a Deere, lawn tractor that is. Here is a link to the parts diagram:https://partscatalog.deere.com/jdrc/.../pgId/17590817

Looks like the Friction wheel and some other parts have pricing and others have "see dealer". Did you "see dealer?". What did the dealer say? With the wheel available and the bearing and carrier available can the other stripped out parts be welded or somehow repaired? Metal can usually be fixed somehow.

2016 Ariens Professional 28
2017 Toro Power Clear 721R
2018 Simplicity Select 1024

Drive Disc Ariens Noma John Deere Laser Rotary Oregon 76-070-0 AM12355, M110594 $18.99 on EBay thats the friction disc
A lot of times when it say "See Dealer" that means they have to check to see if any warehouse might have it in stock as "New Old Stock".
It usually means new part is no longer readily available.
If you have a "5 Star" dealership near you, check them, they are usually good at getting old parts no longer in production and inventory.

I have tried a local equipment dealer that sells new JD products, but they said the shaft is obsolete. I’ve also tried the nearest JD dealer, but every time I call I get the same answer from the front desk “All of our parts people are with customers. Call back”. Suppose I can try a different dealer a few counties away.

No, I do not think he has ever lubricated those parts. He bought it used and it didn’t come with a manual. Worst case scenario, we replace the machine. I can’t imagine a TRS26 is worth much especially a broken one like this.

You also may want to bring that to a local machine shop, as they can work wonders.

Another avenue you might consider is a local Technical School, if you have any in your area. They teach kids, and usually like a challenge to be presented to them. Usually that avenue is free, and they have all the equipment on hand to make just about anything.

I asked some farmers I know which dealer they use. Long story short, I can get the friction wheel and hub. The shaft is not available. The lady on the phone said she checked various warehouses. I’ve also tried to locate a used shaft, but no luck. Asked my grandpa about having the shaft repaired. He’s not too keen on the idea.
