Simplicity Sno-Away 8 60cm

Just picked up a Sno-Away model 1691900 ser. #5284 with a Tecumseh 8hp engine for $200. on Craigslist. The unit is in excellent condition. I would guess this is a 1998 from the info. I've gleaned from your site so far. I'm sorting it out for my daughter and son-in-law who just bought their first home. I would like to change the gearbox oil. Forgive me for asking what must have been asked before but do I have to buy Simplicity gear oil or is there an equivalent?

Thanks

simplicity oil

For the small investment, purchase the right stuff from simplicity. You will never be sorry.

Hmmm..I see Junior never got a reply back in July! Sorry about that Junior!
Its probably just because it was July.. very low snowblower forum discussion levels in July.

Its probably too late now, Junior probably wont see this, but it is true that:

1. "For the small investment, purchase the right stuff from simplicity. You will never be sorry."

It is also true that:

2. Yes, there will be very likely be an equilivant product. You dont have to use the Similicity branded product.
But we would need to research what that specific gearbox requires..it can probably be discovered fairly easily. But whatever it is, its very likely it can be found outside of a Simplicity dealer...the trick is, you need to know what you need.

ebay, amazon, simplicity dealers for starters. Home depot and lowes under rare circumstances carry simplicity parts.

I have a local hardware store that carry pins for pretty much every snowblower brand, but i feel thats equally rare. Worse case scenario, a standard 1/4 bolt will make the machine usable temporarily, although it is weaker and more likely to re-sheer than an appropriate pin.

Using a Bolt for a Shear Pin is a BIG No-No unless it's STRICTLY Temporary, and Will Be Replaced with a Shear Pin ASAP. I've seen More Than One Instance Where Bolts were Responsible for Ruining a Gearbox.
