GXi parts alternatives?

Hi, I'm trying to fix a Stanley 45" snowblower. The friction wheel and drive hub assembly are toast. Too much metal on metal grinding. Does anyone know of any alternative to get parts other than GXi? Prices are kind of nuts from GXi since I am in Canada They want extra 50% on exchange plus shipping charges...I need 2 $95USD parts, will cost me almost $400CDN to get them to my door. Everything I read here says these machines are garbage but I already have it so I'd rather try to fix it than buy another one right now.

Maybe there is some sort of cross reference to another brand?

Thanks in advance.

I think those are MTD blowers similar to the

If so, standard MTD parts for the drive system would likely work. Apparently that is the issue and there is too much blower for the friction wheel drive design. There have been many complaints about the short life of the friction wheels on the wide, dual wheel blowers.
