Angry Honda HS 928

Hey Guys, just wondering if anyone would be able to help me out. I believe I broke the shear pin for the auger/blower assembly. Can anyone give me an idea of how to get at this. What do I have to take apart to get at it? Can I access it from the bottom? Thanks

While it is very cool of mrfixit to post that link, the video is showing the replacement of a wheel pin and it is not designed to shear. The pin will have a cotter pin to hold it in place while shear bolts have a nut.

What we call shear pins, Honda calls the auger and blower shear bolts. The two auger shear bolts are 6mm x 18mm and there is a single blower (impeller) shear bolt that is 8mm x 35mm.

This link points to a 2nd gen tracked 928, so you may need to get your frame number ready to look up which model you have.

9 times out of 10, you'll break an auger shear bolt over a blower shear bolt.

If it is an auger shear bolt, snug it up nicely when tightening it (the boss to the auger itself), just don't over tighten it. I went through a period of high shear bolt breaks and I'm pretty sure it was because I wasn't snugging them up enough.

FWIW. Hope this helps.

Here is a youtube video that shows an auger shear bolt (or shear pin to us mere mortals) replacement:


I think I need a tutorial from mrfixit on imbedding a video.
