1032, Good find?

Hey guys,
been on here for a while, mostly reading and not posting. But yesterday I found a JD 1032 blower on a local site. Went and took a look at it. Had been sitting since winter, so I asked the guy to put some gas in it so we could start it. he said he never pull started it, only used the electric starter...so I was worried.

Regardless, he put fuel in....and it came pouring out the fuel shut off and the carb (easy fix). Gave it a pull and started right up! Sounded great, muffler was loose....not sure what that means yet as I have not taken it apart. Checked the bearings on the auger and everything was tight! no looseness what so ever. The auger ran great as well.

So, he wanted $375 for it, but I walked him through the problems with the fuel leaks and the carb replacement and the possible muffler issue. I offered him quite a bit less and at first he balked, but as I was about to get into the truck.....we came to an agreement....a very favorable one I believe.

My only concern is that I don't know what the 4 way death spikes on the wheels are. AND...it is only on one side. Anyone know what that is for, and if it is necessary?

Here is the pic I have of it:

on the inside of the wheel, coming off the axle is a device that looks like spikes.

This is not my blower, but you can see the spikes on it. Must be for breaking snow....I'm guess.

Looks like it could be a bracket to hold a hubcap, but the hubcap is now missing.
Snowblower "hubcaps" are unusual, but they do exist..Ariens offered small decorative ones for the 10,000 series:



a previous owner of the JD snowblower might have added a hubcap from a JD garden tractor, like this:

http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/f...-truck-181-jpg

or any other garden tractor hubcap, if the size was right..
just a guess! I could be wrong, but "hubcap" was the first thing that popped into my head..

Garage
was gunna guess that it was some sort of attachment for rubber tire chains, but since there are at least two different blowers with it on there....will have to go with the majority.....diff lock.

Diff lock.
Screw it in clockwise to lock and ccw for freewheel.
I just used my foot to do it on mine for the very brief time I owned it.

One more question, is there supposed to be a lock on both sides?
