Jacobsen Imperial 626 Auger/Gear Drive

I have a Jacobsen Imperial 626 snowblower that I bought from my brother in-law three years ago and have an issue. When standing behind it, the right side auger does not engage. I am able to spin it freely so something is broken. It is a great machine, fires right up on the first pull every time, but is only using one auger. Any suggestions as to what the issue may be and where I can get the part(s) to fix it? Thanks!

+1 on that. Make sure you get a replacement pin not a regular bolt, or when you ingest that frozen newspaper (that's when the shear pin is supposed to break!) worse things will happen. ;-)

Thank you guys for the quick responses. It sounds like an easy enough fix.

if the nonworking auger has a grease nipple pump some grease in there until it comes out the end of the shaft and spin the auger around to spread the grease before installing the shear pin, remove the shear pin from the other side and grease it too and reinstall that shear pin

Thank you all for the advice. It was the pin that was broken and I did grease it as well. RoyP, I think mine is a 1978 model.

Don't you just love those cheap and easy fixes?

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.
