Ariens Auger screw

Hi all,

I'am in the middle of installing a new auger control on my Ariens model number 910002 and I'am having an issue removing the small hex screw to get the bolt so I can screw it on properly.

Any advice will help.

Thanks!

Dustin

Roll Pin on your Worm Gear (Shaft)

Hi Dustin,

That should be a roll pin, not a hex screw there.

I've placed the bracket in a vice and carefully punched that roll pin out with a punch that is bigger than the outside diameter of the roll pin but smaller than the inside diameter of the hole it rests in.

I've done it many times. Maybe put some penetrating oil on the roll pin and let it sit for a while first.

I agree, the ones I've dealt with have had a roll pin there.

I think you are a little off there...... it should read
"bigger than the inside diameter of the roll pin but smaller than the diameter of the hole it rests in."

Yes, you are correct.

I was trying to multi-task too much there just finishing up marking the Final Math Exams for my Grade 10 students who needed to re-take their Grade 10 Academic course credit in Summer School here in Hamilton, ON

Thanks for the replies. Ordered a punch set, should be here today and I will give it a shot.

The other problem I had was the other Auger shaft, the one that I'am swapping the gears off of someone had already tried to drill the pin out. Is this a big problem or will the pin still come out?

They also sell inexpensive roll pin punch sets.

The fact that someone started drilling it out means that it is probably seized but I would still try to push it out with a punch (use a lot of penetrating spray if you have), in the worse case scenario you will have to finish drilling it out.

I have some cheap punches from Harbor Freight that work fine. I would start with a punch quite a bit bigger than the pin or even just the hammer if you can. Once you push the pin flush to the shaft, then start with the small one that will fit through the shaft. Also, be sure to set the gear down on a vice or something so you get a few good solid hits on it.

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

So I have tried punching the pin and drilling it out with no luck. I think its time to find another handle....

Thanks for all the help. I was able to get the auger screw out and on the blower this weekend. Now on the some carb issues.
