JD1028 worm gear.

Hi there,

I have an older model JD1028. The worm gear stripped out in the auger gear case. I phoned JD and the worm gear is not available. Even the gear case assembly is not available. Is this gear used on any other brands that I could try?

Otherwise, Iím stuck trying to find a used one, have one made, or buy a new blower.

After finding out the parts are not available I will not buy another JD.

Thanks.

This is what my machine looks like. Any idea what year it is and what other brands are the same?

Can anyone tell me who made that style in the above picture?


I was told JD's were made by many manufactures over the years.


I really can't believe JD can't take the serial number from my machine and give me some info and supply the parts. Really turns me off JD.

Made in 1985. I have that exact one. It has a made in Canada sticker on it. John Deere did have a factory in Welland Ontario in that era although I don't know if they made snowblowers there. The only factory that I know that made snowblowers in Canada in that time was MTD in Kitchener Ontario.
