Auger Support

I don't deal with these often so I'll poke your brains.
If I simply remove one side of the bearing cup on the end of the auger that is mated to the side of the bucket, how much deflection/movement of the auger should I expect. A hairs breath drop ?

I plan to install PPF on the exterior of the bucket.
What that entails though is to remove the screws for the bearing cup on the bucket and then reinstall once I have the film laid on

----
To make a long story short, as I can't recall all the details, but I did something similar on my brand new Honda years ago, and I ended up doing more work that I thought post buttoning it up. I can't recall the details but I do recall having to go a buy a new bearing for whatever reason that it may be...

if you are taking one side at a time. there should be a little movement in there. but not all donuts breaking loose. for the whole world to see.

That's going to depend on what kind of snowblower you have, and to a degree on how "old and tired" it is. But in most cases I'd expect more than a hair's breadth of drop.

On a snowblower with new or like-new bushings and bearings, and the auger gearbox supported by a bracket, you might get 0.010" of drop when you remove one bearing/bushing. On a machine with worn bushings/bearings, and the auger gearbox not supported by a bracket, I wouldn't be surprised to see 1/4" or more of drop.

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

What snow blower are you working on ?? Most only have a bushing that the shaft rides on.

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Husq. 300 Series.

I'm not sure in what position I'll have the snowblower....when I install the PPF.
I'm simply planning to remove the screws holding the bearing cup, install the film and then put / secure the bearing cup back on. Then proceed onto the other side of the bucket, once I have 1 side done

you shouldn't get much deflection with only one side removed.
