I'd line the housing and chute with HDPE then an impeller kit.

Thanks for your reply…however, can you explain a little more please?…What's a "HDPE"…and what do you mean by an "impeller kit"??

Did some progress today… Put the motor back on, reinstalled the handles, controls cables, hooked up the linkages, reinstall the headlight, etc… It's slowly "getting there"! … The front "half" isn't done yet. I still have the whole auger and gear box to assemble and install, same goes for the chute, put the belts, the "belly pan" and wheels back on. After that, it should be close to completed. All that's going to be left is small stuff, check if the spark plug is good, change the oil, put some grease where needed, add new gas in the tank and finally pull the cord and hopefully it'll start!... Oh yeah… let's not forget the finishing touch… the decals!

Do a search on here, you'll find pages of info.

HDPE is a slippery plastic sheet that prevents sticking snow and allows the snow to exit with greater speed and less friction.

Impeller kit is thick pieces of rubber fasten to the tips of the impeller blades that propels the snow faster and further and helps keep the chute clear from clogging.

I've overhauled the gear box with new gears, a new gasket but I forgot to order the seals so seeing that, I ordered them but haven't received them yet. So right now, work is stalled but will resume as soon as the seals arrive. Also I'm going to put in some lubricant especially made for that because the previous owner used some kind of white grease and the gearbox was filled with brass metal filings when I took it apart, so that's why I decided to put new gears in it.
--> One thing I noticed is that the original gears were made of brass and the new replacement ones are made of steel. I suppose that brass was not as resistant as they thought so they corrected this with steel ones which (I assume) should be less subject to wear?… I dunno.
I'll post pictures as work progresses.

Where can I buy that stuff…and is it expensive?

The rubber for the impeller, best to get the type with layers of cloth fibers in it, makes it stronger and longer lasting. Tractor Supply has it at a reasonable price and at the right hardness coefficient.

For HDPE, do an internet search, and on here. Grainager, McMaster Carr are two names that come to mind. Do not get the thin adhesive based, it doesn't have to be thick, and you don't want it thick, so it is going to be thin as You want to shape it.You put it on with screws, rivets, and may need a heat gun to shape it. Line everything including the chute, and the snow will just slip on out.

Thank you for your reply…but I don't want to have to drill holes for screws or rivets because I just had everything sandblasted and powdercoated and drillng holes is an "invitation" for rust to start forming around the holes and eventually spreading else where…

Claude.
P.S: Why don't you recommend using the adhesive-based kind?

The only adhesive HDPE I've seen is very thin as paper and I felt it wouldn't last through. Snow is very abrasive wearing paint off, look at the chute.

I wouldn't be concerned with rust as the snowblower is filled with drilled holes and rust starts else where. Drill the hole and put a dab of paint in the hole or a squirt of clear silicon in the hole under the head of whatever.

Interesting, …. I never drilled and lined any material in any of my snowblowers chutes. I never had an issue of snow not being blown out of a chute. Always blows where I want it.

Not that I need it, but just to see what everyone is talking about, I did pick up some Rain-X spray wax, which they claim repels water (i.e snow?), just spray it on. I know there windshield spray works great at repelling water, so I am going to spray some on my newly painted 10M4 chute, just for shits and giggles, before I snow blow. I really don't expect any difference, as I have been fine for like 30 years or better, but hey, ya never know ….
