P1728E with stuck sheerpin

Just the part that goes through the shaft is stuck, never seen it happen before. I can look in the outer hole and see an end of it. Pound on it with a hammer and improvised punches and I can't seem to move it. I even turned it over so I'm looking at the other side, same thing. Had some Liquid Wrench handy so I put some on last night, that didn't do anything. It just occurred to me I could try to drill it out. It's been in there since at least last season, I just broke it a week or so ago.

One of the official sheerpins, my last one actually. Probably just soft steel though.

Heat it up then you need the right size punch, 1/4". The right size punch applied the amount of force, anything smaller is no good.

grade 5 or 8 bolt and use it as a punch, if u have one an air hammer/chisel to hit head of the bolt, or drill it out as its soft grade 2 or less metal if its a true shear pin

Bought a dead but now fixed 1980ish craftsman II 10/28....ITS ONE HEAVY BEAST

Well, I'm basically snowed in on top of a mountain so what I've got for tools is what I've got. I might have some 1/4 rod but it would be mild steel to turn in my lathe. Or common 1/4-20 bolts. The thing I worry about with trying to drill it out is getting outside the hole and messing up the shaft. But I suppose it isn't going to happen fast.

Heat, not a big fan and all I've got is a propane torch. Blower's only 5 years old and still has most of the original paint.

It never happened like this before but I suppose because it's had all summer to rust up that could be a factor. Back at it tomorrow, I was just sick of working on it for today, looking for ideas.

It is probably in two pieces or mangled and not actually perfectly lined up perfectly. Try a wrench on it and see if both ends spin perfectly together. If not try to pull out the shortest exposed portion. That will allow you to line up the auger holes and bang put the rest. Hope this helps.

If you don't have the right size punch then pound it out using a 1/4" bolt with the most marks on the head you can find.

Wrench? No, all that's left is what's broken off flush in the auger shaft, no head. It seems to be stuck in the hole. Usually they come out easier.

Yeah, the number of marks indicates the hardness, I remember that much. I've mostly got a few Home Depot ones. A soft one is what I plan to use as a new sheer pin, I've got some real ones ordered.

It drilled out fine, I just didn't expect it to get that stuck. Maybe it depends on the force involved, I was trying to get too close to a mailbox set into a pail filled with concrete. Nah, I've done something close every time I've broken one.
