Ariens 8hp Snowblower impeller shaft slack

Ariens 8hp snowblower model 924050 has slop in the driveshaft from the impeller to the auger gear box.

The auger shaft seems ok no extra play in any direction.

Does this sound like the gear on the shaft and in the auger box is bad?

Everything does work just noisy.

Pulley for impeller and auger does appear to be all the way forward,but if you move the impeller it will move about 3/4 inch back and forth.

Thanks...............

Thanks for the response Jack.
So you think a bad main shaft bearing would cause the forward movement of the shaft to the gearbox?
Haven't pulled it all apart yet,but will check that.
Thanks again

I am thinking the bushing inside the gearbox is bad. There is a collar on it that acts as a shim.

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